About This Activity

Tap ';N'; Run combines a ridiculous running race - a 4k with 3 beer chug stations* along the race course, a full beer at the Finish Line, crazy costumes, great times with friends, and unbelievable athleticism. JAM Active has teamed up with some rad local bars in Fort Lauderdale to create this awesome day of racing and community enjoyment! (*chug stations = 5 oz. of beer per)

In addition to being a part of an awesome and unique racing experience, all participants will receive a sweet Finisher';s medal (that doubles as a bottle opener...no, really), the equivalent of over two beers and a Tap ';N'; Run t-shirt to commemorate your amazing accomplishment. We also have the option of being professionally timed so you and your friends can laugh about how long it took to finish a mere 4ishK while sipping some suds!

Age & ID Guidelines

Tap ';N'; Run is all about ridiculousness and fun with your friends, frienimies, family and randoms. You MUST be 21 years of age by race day to participate and all beer chugging is 100% optional (water will be available at all beverage stops). All participants MUST have valid IDs available upon check-in which will be reviewed by law enforcement agenies. No valid ID = no race.

Racing as an Individual

Like any race out there, you can race as an individual in the Tap ';N'; Run 4k. Awards will be given out for the top 3 finishers in various age divisions, which include ';Never Been Tapped'; (ages 21-25), Quarter Life Crisis (26-35), ';Cougars & Creepers'; (36-45), Sports Cars & Botox (46-55) and Viagra & Hot Flashes (56+) divisions. * To be eligible to receive these awards, you must sign up to be timed.

Racing as a Team

Teams of 2 to infinity can race in Tap ';N'; Run. The top 3 team finishes who chose to be timed in each division - Pints (2-4 members), Tall Boys (5-7), and Growlers (8+) - will receive team awards. Team times are based on the average between all timed team members. All timed team members are also eligible for individual finisher awards and all costume/extracurricular awards.

Costume/Extracurricular Awards

Sure, a few of you are going to be lame-o and see how fast you can finish Tap ';N'; Run. A far greater number of you will enjoy the camaraderie, hilarity and spectacle of all the entertaining costumes and ridiculousness at Tap ';N'; Run. In honor of not-taking-this-race-too-seriously, JAM Active will be awarding winners in the following divisions: Best Stache (Real & Fake), Hot Mess, and We Wear Short Shorts! Awards will also be given out for the Most Original Team Name, Most Original Team Concept and the Best Belcher!

After Party

Immediately following the Tap ';N'; Run 4k, JAM Active will announce award winners. Afterwards, all participants are encouraged to stick around and enjoy the party at America';s Backyard!
