Chasing Tail Run Logo

The Chasing Tail Run is a one-of-a-kind excuse to drink delicious craft beer cunningly disguised as a road race

General Info

We're excited for a second round of the Chasing Tail Run on September 23, 2017! Join us for an awesome 4 mile race through Downtown Salt Lake City! In addition, we'll also have the 1.5 mile Doggie Dash to support Salt Lake County Animal Services! Both distances start from Squatters Brew Pub in downtown Salt Lake City!

Your registration gives you a great technical T-Shirt, Squatters pint glass, your first beer, and an awesome post race party with plenty more Squatters beer, games, and a STEIN HOLDING CONTEST! For those of you racing the Doggie Dash, your fur children will get an awesome piece of Squatters gear!


Get in touch with us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram by clicking on the icons to the left. Or, send us an email HERE.

As important as our great participants, we won't have a race without AWESOME VOLUNTEERS! We'll need all the help we can get to help with set up/ tear down, packet pickup, directing runners, handing out water at aid stations, and various other simple, but necessary tasks. As a volunteer, you get all the same schwag as runners and you won't be as tired afterwards! Sign up HERE to volunteer!!!


Support ASUU and Salt Lake County Animal Services

We are excited to partner with ASUU and Salt Lake County Animal Services for the Chasing Tail Run! While you chase your tails and beers, you'll be helping support cancer research at Huntsman Cancer Institute as well as a great organization supporting the well being of unwanted animals through shelter, care, and adoptions.

Race Map

FYI: THIS IS A TENTATIVE COURSE.The Doggie Dash is your pup's time to shine! Bring your four-legged friend for a quick 1.5 mile run with proceeds going to support the Humane Society of Utah. Dogs are only allowed to run with their owner in the 1.5 Mile Doggie Dash. 

After the Run, It's the After Party

Each runner will get a commemorative beer glass from Squatters Beers. No need to bring it to the race, we'll have plenty of Squatters pints available! Once you finish, get your first beer included with your registration (unless you opted out)!! If you're a runner who's not of age or don't care for a beer, no worries, we'll have options for you too!  

Our awesome beer garden is family and dog friendly so come play some games, eat great food, pet some dogs, and cheer on the gladiators of the Stein Holding Contest!
