We wanted everyone to experience cool beer spots in and around Atlantic City, and cap it off with an incredible time at The Atlantic City Beer & Music Festival. Browse around you’ll find plenty info on the 3rd Annual Hops Trot 5K Run, presented by DelMoSports & Good Time Tricycle!
The 2018 Hops Trot 5K Run will once again start and finish at The Atlantic City Convention Center. No need to leave bags at one point and pick them up in another, on the other side of town. Our staff will attend to your belongings as you run, jog, and sip your way through and past some of Atlantic City's best beer joints, while tasting some incredible New Jersey Brews. 10:30 AM Start.
Year Two of Hops Trot yielded 800 registrants, and even with the chilly temps, the race still saw a massive turnout both pre-registered as well as walk-up registrants.
Included in registration:
You will be passing stores, restaurants, landmarks, and even running along the world-famous Atlantic City Boardwalk. This is a social event and we encourage you to bring a running buddy or six. More people, more competition, and most of all... more FUN!
From down the street, to across the globe, nearly 200 breweries will be present, serving almost 1,000 beers for all to try. The goal of The Atlantic City Beer and Music Festival is to promote and educate attendees on craft beers as well as the brew masters that create them.
Kick off to Session 2 of the Atlantic City Beer and Music Festival.
