Join The Sarasota Music Half Marathon Beer Run Series

Each month, through Jan 2018, we will be hosting a Fun Run (Beer Run if you so choose) geared at bringing our SMHM family together. We will raffle off Free Registrations, beers, and other goodies! The first event brought out over 100 people out to Mr. Beery’s in Sarasota. With special musical guests, 2017 performers, The Beat Down.

Join us for 3 or more Beer Runs and receive a free SMHM hat! Additionally, you will be entered to win an iPad Pro. You must register with us and check-in to qualify. Don’t worry, it’s free. iPad winner will be drawn in Jan.

The location will rotate between some of our favorite local craft breweries and watering holes all over the Southwest of Florida.
Distance will generally be approximately a 5k.

The FINAL Beer Run will be a special event, so we’re keeping it a secret until we get closer to 2018.

Stay tuned to your email for reminders, but also follow us on Facebook where we will be posting about the events and any important details.

Just Added: The Poke Dash 10k

Are you a Pokemon Go fanatic? Casual Player?
Or Maybe you’re running the Music Half or Rockin’ 10k and don’t know what to do with the kids?

Sign up for the Poke Dash! You will complete the same 10k course at the Rockin’ 10k participants, only you’ll be catching “them all!”
We’ve walked the 10k route and there are TONS of pokemon of varying types just waiting to fill up your Pokedex, and about 25 Pokestops.
That means you get to hit 50 Pokestops AND put on some miles to hatch any eggs you might have.

You’ll enjoy all the same perks as the Rockin’ 10k participants, 10 live bands, a rockin’ after-party where you get to brag about how many you caught over a delicious breakfast served by Metro Diner!
What’s even better, you’ll get a sweet Poke Dash T-Shirt and a Rockin’ 10k medal.

Register for the Poke Dash today!

On Course Party

The race is one big party from start to finish. Grill on your lawn. Invite friends for beer. Pull up a pool chair. Make cheer signs with your kids. Ring a cowbell. Dance to the music. You can have a party just about any place along the course. Sweet home, Alabama.

Girl Scout Cookie Stop

Don’t miss the Daisy Girl Scout Cookie Pit Stop in Cherokee Park, mile 8.5. Who doesn’t like a Girl Scout cookie? Love those Samoas or are you a fan of Thin Mints? The cute little Daisies, Brownies and Girl Scouts will have them all. A donation will be made to the local troop for every cookie you eat…so chomp away!

The Beer Mile

We definitely bring you home in style for the 13th mile. You must have a special race wristband and bib indicating you’re over 21. No bib, no beer, no fun. But lots of water and sports drink!

Post Race Beer Garden

Open to all runners 21 and over. You must have our special wristband that you received at packet pick-up on your wrist or your photo id. Who runs with id?
