Romsey 5 Mile Beer Race

10am start, 7 June 2020



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 and A-Plant, 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, as well as a souvenir pint glass. 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.

The race includes chip timing, generous place prizes, and music played by the Romsey Ukelele Group.

A highly popular FREE 1km fun run for 4-14 year olds will take place at 11:45, after the main race and prize-giving.  Registration for the fun run is on the day in the recreation ground finish area.

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