Beers & Bagels

About the event:

Started in 2021 The Beers & Bagels Fun Run is 5km run from the popular Jacks Bagels Summerstrand to the relaxed, scenic Ziggy's Rock and Reggae bar at Pine Lodge. This 5km fun run is aimed at everyone, whether you sprint, run or walk all that matters is that you have a good time! And it is a pretty good excuse to eat a bagel and drink a beer.
