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 $95.00 (or about one pint per month) and provides the following:

Front Of Line

First access to our events. So, for our smaller runs (like to Godspeed or Left Field), 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.

RunTOBeer Merch

A minimum 10% discount on new orders of RUNTOBEER branded technical and casual clothing & accessories.

Beer glasses, toques and RunTOBeer x Ciele caps are available now. 


Craft Beer Passport

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 (one use only).

The price for a 2019 membership will be $95.00.

If $95.00 is too much to put down all at once, you may also make two monthly payments ($50.00 & $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 a 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.
