DOVER– The American Cancer Society’s Hops for Hope 5K Run/Walk is an exciting new event in conjunction with the 20th annual Mount Snow Brewers Festival. The Hops for Hope race is held on Saturday, August 30, at 9 am. Enjoy a multi-terrain run/walk that is beginner friendly while challenging to even the most seasoned of runners. There is a $25 registration fee.

Prizes will be awarded to the top three men and top three women, but all participants will receive a specialty men’s or women’s T-shirt and a limited edition Hops for Hope pint beer glass.

After the race, stay for awards and light refreshments, and then at 12 pm join the thousands of others coming to Mount Snow to enjoy over 40 breweries. The Mount Snow Brewers Festival has become one of the premier events of its kind in the Northeast and more than 40 different breweries are expected to be on hand, pouring their beers and ciders from 85-plus different taps. Brewers Festival tickets are an additional cost; see the Mount Snow website for details.

There is no better way to enjoy all of what Vermont has to offer while raising money in the fight against cancer. All proceeds from the 5K will be going to the American Cancer Society.
