Sierra Nevada Race To The Taps at Sierra Nevada Mills River
April 27 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Come join Sierra Nevada for the second Race to the Taps of the year! They continue at Sierra Nevada Brewing in Mills River. Early start time of 10:00am for this race with packet pickup starting at 8:30am. See you there!
Over the river and through the woods to Sierra Nevada we go…
The 5k route for the Sierra Nevada race will leave their off-site parking lot (Six Row), go along Old Fanning Bridge Road, on the nature trail system up to Sierra Nevada’s property, through their brewery lot, into back areas not normally open to the public and down the gravel path to the Lower Park on the French Broad River for the awards, food truck and beer!
Due to the terrain of this 5k route, they are not allowing bikes, strollers and dogs are discouraged…but if you do bring your dog, they’ll just ask that you stay behind the pack of human runners.
All runners and all spectators will need to park off of Old Fanning Bridge Road in the Sixth Row parking lot. The Sierra Nevada shuttles will be running from the Sixth Row parking area to the front of the brewery for spectating friends, families, kids and dogs to make their way to the Lower Park area and cheer runners on at the finish line. The shuttle will be available during and after the race for anyone ready to get back to their car in Sixth Row.
Awards will be given to top 3 finishers in multiple age groups for both male and female. Dress to impress…wear a brewery themed costume for the chance to win King or Queen of the Race to the Taps!!
Race bib/packet pick up will be held at Harry’s on the Hill on the Friday afternoon prior to the race (April 26th) and on the morning of the race starting at 8:30am.
