The Romsey 5-Mile Beer Race, organised by Romsey Road Runners, is a much-loved road race which attracts 400 runners each year. Supported by local brewery Flack Manor as well as Up and Running, runners enjoy the picturesque country lanes of Braishfield village, with a thirst-quenching pint of real ale (for over 18s) and a slice of cake for all runners at the finish. It’s a friendly and good-natured event for runners of all levels and abilities.

Hailed by Runners World as ‘a charming 5 miler run along quiet country lanes’, we are proud to present a road race for all runners. We are extremely grateful to Braishfield Parish Council, the Newport Inn Cricket Club and residents of the village for their continued support for the race, and look forward to welcoming you on the day.

A highly popular FREE 1km fun run for 4-14 year olds takes place at 11:45, after the main race and prize-giving.  Registration for the fun run is on the day in the village hall car park.

The Pantry, Braishfield’s café, is open at the village hall during and after the race.
