ATLANTA -- What could possibly improve a Saturday morning run through Virginia-Highland? Beer, of course.

The Tap 'N' Run 4K will make its Atlanta debut at 2 p.m. on Nov. 17.

This fun run "combines participants' love of beer and running for a unique 'one of a kind' run/walk race totaling 2.4 miles," according to Josh Brack, spokesman for JAM Active, which hosts the race.

Tap 'N' Run features four "chug stations" along the course. Runners will drink a four-ounce sample of beer at each one. Upon reaching the finish line, they will be rewarded with a full-size beer, a T-shirt and a commemorative medal that doubles as a bottle opener.

Prizes will be awarded to the wackiest runners; categories include Best Mustache, Best Belcher and Hot Mess.

"We are looking forward to seeing how creative folks in Atlanta can get," JAM Active executive director Matt Roberts said in a statement. "And, as always, we encourage participants to have fun, yet drink responsibly."

Roberts added that JAM Active staff members will be available to assist runners who imbibe a bit too much.
