The 5K with flavor!

In 2016, we had a crazy idea. A 5K with flavor. Those flavors… BEER.

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 2019 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 Three 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:

  • Session 2 of the Atlantic City Beer & Music Festival
  • SWEET Finisher Medal!
  • One of a kind Hops Trot Pint Glass
 

A Weekend Of Events

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!
