The Ville to Ville Craft Brew Relay celebrates the beautiful region from Asheville, NC to Greenville, SC. It is a 72-mile team running event traveling from the peaks to the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, through local craft breweries, and into quaint southern towns. 


The 6th Annual Ville to Ville Craft Brew Relay will be held on April 15, 2023. The first flight of teams will start the relay around 5:00 am in Asheville, NC. Over the next few hours, additional teams will depart on their journey through the Carolinas. Each team will consist of three to six runners who will split 12 legs ranging from 3-9 miles. Each team will provide its own race vehicle to drop off and pick up runners at designated transition areas along the course route. Ville to Ville teams will arrive at Hampton Station and Birds Fly South Ale Project in Greenville, SC between 3:00-8:00 pm for a finish line celebration which will include music, food, and of course, craft brews.


2023 THEME


Can I have your autograph?!? The theme for the 2023 Ville to Ville is "Hollywood".  You will finally get your 8-12 hours of fame as you run the course dressed as your favorite celebrity or celebrity group.  We will roll out the red carpet, as you cross the finish line glistening with sweat, and smiling at your accomplishments. Here's looking at you kid!


TEAM PAYMENTS


All teams will be required to pay a deposit of $280 during your initial registration and will have the option to pay the entire fee of $730. Teams that only pay the deposit must pay the remainder of their team fee ($450) by January 15, 2023, at midnight.  Teams with unpaid fees on January 16, 2023, will lose their spot in the race and their non-refundable deposit. Team rosters should be finalized by March 5, 2022. There is a 5.5% processing fee on all online payments.

AGE REQUIREMENTS


All runners must be 21 years old or older to participate in the Ville to Ville Craft Brew Relay.


TEAM NAME


Be creative, but keep it classy. Your team name will appear in lots of public places, so make sure it is one that would make your mother proud. You will submit your team name during registration, but it can be changed until March 5, 2023.

TEAM CAPTAIN


Each team will have a team captain (we will initially use the name and contact info of the person registering.) We will provide regular race information and updates for the team captain on our Captain Resources page and through monthly email newsletters. Team Captains can be transferred at any point to another person. Existing captains should email [email protected] and Cc the new captain if they are requesting a captain change.


TEAM PACE


In order to make it to the post-race party in one day, it is mandatory to have a team pace of 11:00 minutes per mile or less.  This doesn’t mean that everyone on the team has to run at this pace, but it does mean that if you have slower team members, you will need faster team members to keep your team on track.


You will estimate a team pace when you register your team with an average min/mile pace for all runners on the entire course.  For a 6-person team, each runner will run twice between 3-9 miles, so a 10K time average would be expected. Final team pace estimates will be due on March 5, 2023.  Visit our team resources page to see our pace calculator to help with your estimation.


CANCELLATION / WEATHER


This is a rain or shine event. The race director has the right to change the course or change the event in case of inclement weather or state restrictions. More details on our weather policy can be found on our team resources page.
