  1. Hi Folks:

    Just wondering if there will be a 2019 rendition of the 5Beer5K race. If so, can you advise of host location?

    Thanks so much!

    1. Hi, Derek: Yup — just getting organized now. Friday August 23. Registration opens at 6:30 and gun time is 7:30 sharp. We aren’t 100% sure on the venue, but it will be in or around London Ontario.
