2020 CANCELLED – Back on Saturday August 14th 2021!

CORONAVIRUS UPDATE: Sadly, given the current circumstances, we’ve had to make the difficult decision to cancel Marple Beer Run this year. 🙁

The situation is too uncertain and it seems unlikely that we’ll be allowed to run an event for 300+ people in under 5 weeks time. It’s hugely disappointing for us all, but we hope everyone understands.

We’ll be looking at other options over the next few weeks, including how you can join in a Virtual Beer Run instead (!), and we’re possibly news about a new Christmas-themed run in December, with all the best bits of Beer Run with some added sparkle (if we’re allowed!)

Sorry, sorry, sorry, and see you all for the next Marple Beer Run on SATURDAY 14TH AUGUST 2021!


After three brilliant years, we have records to be broken, and this year (hopefully) more than 200+ people will be heading off from Marple Rec on Oldknow Road to the Fox Inn pub, at 14:00 on Saturday afternoon, on a challenging 4km trail-run, with each hoping to become our new Champion!

After every kilometre along the way, there’s an optional beer-stop, where participants can stop to drink a pint of delicious craft beer (this year supplied by 3 different local breweries!) – or a gin and tonic option is available.

The finish line is the Fox Inn, where a nice cool beer is included in the entry fee, along with a buffet of food and hopefully some live music. The challenge is to complete the 4km run and drink 3 pints along the way (and the winner will get a prize!), but it’s mainly an excuse to have fun, get out into the countryside, do some exercise, and, of course, drink beer. Oh, and make money for charity – at least £10 per participant goes to local charities, but more if we get more people.

We’re still finalising which local beers will be on our craft beer stops – though Outstanding will definitely be back – and G & T fans will be excited to learn that Didsbury Gin will kindly be providing the Gin! (*Though as with last year, to win the top prize you have to successfully complete the beer run (but a smaller prize will be awarded to our fastest G&T’er too!)
