The Sheffield Half Pint Marathon

The Sheffield Half Pint Marathon is a fun and unique event! It's an event that guides you around 13 different pubs in Sheffield (hence the half marathon reference, not 13 miles!) in celebration of Sheffield's local pubs and breweries. Participants can get to the 13 pubs by whichever means they prefer, many people do in fact choose to run the distance. At each pub you sample a specially brewed beer and collect a stamp. Either way, it sounds like a great way to combine fitness and enjoyment.

Each year we aim to get a a host of new venues and beers to try and a new route to give a go!

Kicking off on the 1st of September, the Half Pint Marathon is a month-long celebration aimed at giving people a chance to contribute to a great local charity, support independent local businesses and explore our wonderful city, all whilst drinking beer. Alcohol free options are available. True North Brew Co promotes responsible drinking Sip, don't gulp. For more facts, go to:

Sheffield Half Pint Marathon beers

In 2023 we teamed up with Abbeydale Brewery to bring you two delicious special edition beers, especially for the event. 'Set The Pace' and 'Tempo' will be available in all participating venues and with each Half Pint Marathon beer purchased throughout September, a donation will be made to Sheffield Mind.

The premise of the Sheffield Half Pint Marathon is simple - at the starting venue of your choice you will receive your Half Pint Marathon card, then for each venue you visit and purchase one of the speciality beers, you will receive a sticker.

We've worked with the incredibly talented Will Rea (follow him on Instagram: @willustration) to create a limited-edition Sheffield Half Pint Marathon print, featuring hand-drawn illustrations of the participating venues, which you can collect once you've filled your Half Pint Marathon card!

Make sure you've registered to find out more about when and where you can collect your limited-edition print.

You can complete the marathon at your own pace, in a day, week, or even over the whole month.
