Scenic course will start and end at Deerfield taproom with private party for runners and spectators
DEERFIELD, Mass. – The inaugural Tree House Brewing Company Half Marathon will take place on Sunday Sept. 17 at their stunning sanctuary-like campus neighboring Mount Sugarloaf in the heart of Western Massachusetts.
Runners will take to the course at 9 a.m., touring a scenic route that winds and undulates through one of New England’s most iconic Fall touring destinations. Participants and ticket-holding spectators will be treated to a private post-race party at the Tree House Deerfield taproom. Registration is now open, both to run and to spectate. DMSE Sports has been tapped by the renowned Massachusetts-based independent brewery to bring to life what is certain to become a premier annual event.
Participants in the half marathon will receive a Finisher’s Medal, a custom 2023 Tree House Half Marathon glass, two Tree House craft beverages of their choice (including non-alcoholic options), and a big homemade pretzel. The brewery will not be open to the public on race day, so friends and family looking to celebrate with a runner should purchase a ticket. Space is limited. Non-runner event tickets include access to the taproom and party with live music, plus two Tree House Craft Beverages of their choice. While the event is open to runners of all levels, competitive runners can toe the line for a chance at a prize purse of $5,000, $2,500 and $1,000, which will be awarded to the top three finishers in men’s and women’s divisions.
Tree House Brewing Company celebrates its eleventh year in June. The founder-owned and operated brand has grown from a five-gallon Coleman cooler brewhouse to a state-of-the-art 60 BBL German-engineered brewhouse producing some of the world’s highest regarded beverages, which can only be found at its five facilities. The flagship brewery, distillery, coffee roastery and taproom is located in Charlton, Massachusetts. Tree House maintains a brewery in Monson, Massachusetts, and a Farm Fermentory in Woodstock Connecticut. Its brewery-taprooms also deliver exceptional hospitality in Western Mass (Deerfield), Cape Cod (Sandwich), and Greater Boston (Tewksbury), featuring a soon-to-open nine-hole golf experience.
The new half marathon is just one of the more than a dozen New-England-based events that DMSE Sports directs or consults on. Their resume includes more than 1,400 events throughout the world including the Boston Athletic Association (B.A.A.) Boston Marathon, the ASICS Falmouth Road Race, the lululemon 10K Tour, the Feaster Five Road Race, the Olympic Marathon trials, the Olympic Games, and more.
