The Brewers of Portugal will organize the first “Beer Runners” in Portugal, on the 3rd of November. The initiative, starting at 10:00 am from Praça do Império, in Belém, will bring together two relevant aspects of Portuguese culture: physical activity and the social act of sharing a beer.
The race, easy level, includes a 10km race and a 5km walk, and is intended for everyone: professional athletes, amateurs, experienced runners, beginners and hikers. The Beer Runners movement emerged in 2007 when a group of Philadelphia runners, inspired by a study by the University of Granada School of Medicine, attesting to the beneficial relationship between sports and moderate beer consumption, began to organize races once a week, which always ended with beer sharing.
At the end of the Beer Runners are scheduled two stretching sessions and the podium ceremony. All participants who cross the target will have the opportunity to enjoy a beer and non-alcoholic beer, accompanied by lupins and nuts, to replace hydration and sodium levels.
The first official “Beer Runners” took place in 2012, in Spain, promoted by Cerveceros de España. Today, this community of beer and activity enthusiasts has more than 28,000 members, spread across 78 local groups, who regularly organize to run and share a beer, always in moderation. The movement is also growing in Denmark, Edinburgh, New York and Chicago.
