Event Info

Come test yourself on a hilly 5k course with a mix of road and trails. Starting amongst the trees of Queen's Park, the 2.5km loop starts on a fast downhill where you'll zoom past the heritage homes of Queen's Park. You'll take the winding path through the park, with a mix of ups and downs. Be prepared for the short, steep hill at the 2k (and 4.5k) mark, where we will have a cheering section to keep your spirits high. Enter back into the woodland area to finish the first loop and hit the halfway point. One more loop and you're done!

As a participant, you will receive a finishers medal, bib, timing chip, and grab bag, as well as access to water and a snack at the finish line. There will also be a beer garden available, along with a food truck for anyone wanting to hang out after the race, or just to spend a day in the park.

Whether you’re a seasoned runner or a newcomer to the sport, the Steel & Oak Beer Run is the perfect opportunity to get active, have fun, and support a great cause. So lace up your running shoes and join us for a day of fitness, philanthropy, and fun!

Beer Garden

S&O will be providing beers available for purchase at our race day beer garden. Alongside beer we will have non-alcoholic options.

Food Truck

There will be a food truck located directly behind the beer garden.

Race Kit Pickup

On Thursday May 9th, you will be able to pick up your bib and swag bag from Steel & Oak Brewing Co. and enjoy a 10% discount on beer to go for that day only

Cheer Section

Tell your friends, family, neighbors, social media followers, pets to come support you on race day. The course loop finishes with a short, steep uphill. We think this is a spot where everyone may need a little  boost. Therefore, we will be hosting a designated cheer section on the hill. Supporters will be directed to this area to wave signs, cheer, stomp their feet or any other way of firing you up. Expect an immediate rush of energy and an effortless glide to the finish line.
