The Imperial Membership
RUNTOBEER is free and will continue to be that way. The Imperial Membership however, offers a whole lot of extras for those who want more running and beer experiences.
This annual membership -- which becomes active for one year at the time you sign up -- is limited to 75 runners. The cost is $90.00 (or about one pint per month) and provides the following:
Front Of Line
First access to our events. So, for our smaller runs coming up (like to Left Field or MERIT), you'll have at least 24 hours advance access to the online registration form. For an event sponsored by Canada Running Series however, where we don't handle registration, there's no guarantee you'll have first access. Brewers' Backyard and Mikkeller Running Club events currently have no registration cap. This will mostly apply to our regular Sunday runs and Tuesday evening Venture Off The Beaten Path trail running series.
A 10% discount on all RUNTOBEER branded technical and casual clothing & accessories.
Performance running hats, ball caps, technical and casual shirts are available now.
Craft Beer Passport (2018)
For the first time, the popular Craft Beer Passport program now offers users a chance to purchase a 3-stamp plan for just $5.00.
Imperial Members get the 3-stamp plan for free in 2018 (one use only).
Race Roster Spring Run-Off
Access to the VIP lounge!
Thanks to Canada Running Series, Imperial members can relax before and after the 2018 Race Roster Spring Run-Off, while enjoying complimentary food & drink, bag storage and a portable toilet separate from the majority of the runners!
$10.00 discount on all 5 Peaks Trail Races in 2018.

20% orders of Endurance Tap, an all-natural, energy gel alternative containing only three ingredients: Canadian maple syrup, sea salt, and ginger.

This alone saves you nearly $75.00 (pretty much the entire cost of an Imperial membership) and includes 12 hours of in-class training, a course workbook, a flavour & colour wheel to assist with sensory evaluation, two tasting glasses, plenty of beer sampling and some food pairings

WANT TO JOIN?
Unfortunately all memberships have been sold. The earliest any will become available again is April 11th, 2018.
The price for a 2018 memberships is $90.00.
If $90.00 is too much to put down all at once, you may also make two (2) payments of $45.00. You won't be able to take advantage of any of the discounts until the full amount has been paid, but you will still get early access to RUNTOBEER events.
About the name
In the beer world, the term Imperial implies a bigger, stronger version of another style. We're borrowing from that, not to imply that Imperial members have any elite status when it comes to our events -- there will be no Imperial badges or secret handshakes -- just the opportunity to participate in more beer and running events outside of regular RUNTOBEER activities.
