    I've got a fever...

      On your deathbed, you won't wish that you'd spent more time at the office.  But you will wish that you'd spent more time running.  Because if you had, you wouldn't be on your deathbed.

        That IS good to know! Especially since no one can find the list of marathons that have beer at the finish. The Healdsburg Half Marathon (next month, in the CA wine country) has a wine glass in the race packet, good for tasting at the wine festival following the race. That's a close second. Arla

          You know, RA could start a list of races with beer at the finish. I know that the Grand Rapids Marathon has it (rumor has it a late aid station on the full course has beer, too), as does Milwaukee (well, duh...it's Milwaukee! Big grin).

              Someone just posted about the Yuengling Shamrock Marathon in Virginia Beach! http://www.shamrockmarathon.com/site3.aspx Dang, I really want one on the Left Coast. Arla

                Not a certified course, but the 5K and 12 mile runs at the Rutabaga Festival in Cumberland, WI finish at the beer garden. You don't get free beer, but the taps are literally 20 yards from the finish line. Our rule is if you beat your goal time, you get beer!

                  I think most of the St Patty's races feature beer tents @ the end.... Definitely had beer after the Colorado Marathon, Ft Collins http://www.ftcollinsmarathon.com/ & the Colfax Marathon lists the Breckenridge Brewery as a sponsor Wink http://www.coloradocolfaxmarathon.org/portal/Home/tabid/56/Default.aspx the Boulder Backroads Mary however, did not have the traditional beer tent Sad many folks disappointed

                    Memphis Marathon has all the Coors Light you can stomach in the food area. (And doughnuts, hot chocolate, McAllister's soup, Domino's pizza, Coke/Diet Coke, Powerade) Definitely the tops that I've experienced for post race refreshments. KDF Louisville mini/Marathon gives you a ticket for a single drink--I think only Mic Ultra Flying Pig had a festival outside the finishers' area where you had to pay for beer OBX Marathon had "beer samples" but the festival with the real selection required $$.

                      The Harpeth Hills Flying Monkey Marathon has all the microbrewed Yazoo beer you care to enjoy (along with loads of home-baked goodies) in the finishers' area.
                      Fixed that for you.
                        Fixed that for you.
                        Well, I cannot personally vouch for beer that I haven't personally drank.
