Join us at Almaden Lake Park for the Beer City Half in San Jose, the third stop in the Beer City Half Series. The Beer City Half San Jose include a half marathon, 10k, and 5k races, as well as our new Questicorn - a unicorn-themed fun run/walk. The post-race celebration offers you a selection of brews from the great San Jose-area brewers. There are special tasting tickets for those who want to attend for the beer only.
To learn more about the courses, the cutoff times, aid station locations and other race-specific facts, go to Courses (click here.)
Each runner receives a comfy Beer City San Jose t-shirt, a Key to Beer City San Jose finishers medal, Beer City tasting glass, custom bib and free race photos.
Podium trophies are given to the top 3 in each race by gender. Age group awards are given 3-deep. Age group winners are requested to identify themselves at the timing table.
All runners are entered into the Beer City Series results and our Slammers who are running all races will get special pins and awards.
Beer City offers our runners over 21 years of age a selection of beer, kombucha, and hard tea from local San Jose brewers like S27 and Strike, as well as from some of the Beer City Sonoma All-Stars, like Third Street Aleworks and Lagunitas, as well as Beer City Alameda brewers, Original Pattern and Almanac. There will also be non-alcoholic Hop Water. Your tasting is part of your registration. No need to be another tasting ticket!
Guests wishing to take part in the beer tasting only can purchase Tasting Only tickets here to have access to all the beer and other refreshments. You will receive a wristband at registration.
Beer will be served in 7oz Beer City Festival tasting glasses for you to take home (without a beer in them still).
