Taking place in the heart of “No-Shave November”, The Beerd Run is the world’s beardiest, bearded run, beard competition and keg party! A portion of proceeds from each registered participant will be donated to the Testicular Cancer Society. Walk, jog or race around beautiful Lake Baldwin, located in Orlando, FL. Ladies, children and all those “beardly challenged” – we’re not leaving you out! Choose the “Ultimate Beerd Pass” package and receive a complimentary faux beard, or take advantage of our on-site face painters. After the race, participants are encouraged to give their beards a beer, participate in the Best Beerd Competition, have beard-tastic photos taken and stuff their bearded faces with some great food! The Beerd Run is a great way to let your facial hair down while supporting a great cause!

The Cause

A portion of proceeds from each registered participant will be donated to the Testicular Cancer Society. The Testicular Cancer Society is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization to raise awareness for the most common form of cancer in men age 15-35. They are dedicated to increasing awareness and education about the disease and providing support for fighters, survivors and caregivers.

Testicular cancer is the most common form of cancer in men 15-35 years old.

Each year, approximately 8,500 men will be diagnosed with testicular cancer and approximately 350 men will die from the disease. That averages out to every hour of every day some man hears, “You have testicular cancer.”

Testicular cancer strikes approximately six in 100,000 men per year and one in 300,000 men per year will die from the disease.

To better understand these numbers, 1 in 250 men will be diagnosed with testicular cancer at some point in their lifetime and 1 in 5,000 will die from testicular cancer.

For all cases of testicular cancer the overall 5-year survival rate is 95% but the key is early detection. When testicular cancer is diagnosed in early stages, meaning the cancer is confined to the testis, the 5-year survival rate is 99%. When the cancer has spread to regional lymph nodes the 5-year survival rate drops to 96%. If the cancer has metastasized (spread) to distant areas the 5-year survival rate is 71%.

There are currently more than 195,000 men in the U.S. that are testicular cancer survivors. Testicular cancer accounts for approximately 1% of all cancers in men.


FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions.

  • Is there an age limit to race?

    Nope! Participants of any age are welcome and encouraged. This allows furry-faced children to run with their prickly-chinned grannies. Participants under the age of 18 may be registered by their parent or legal guardian. Anyone over the age of 18 must register themselves.
  • Do you offer group discounts?

    Have a furry fleet backing you, huh? Good news -  if you have a group (of 10 or more) we can provide you with a unique code to receive 10% off all packages. Sign up the whole office with your bosses credit card. Then sign up some random strangers with it. He won't mind, right? Right. Email us for the code.
  • What’s the deal with packet pickup?

    Please arrive at 7 am on race day (if you're not going to pre packet pick-up at Academy Sports). To pick up someone else’s packet, you will need a written statement from the packet owner, with their signature, stating that you can pick up their packet for them.  You will also need a photo ID.
  • I can no longer make it! Can I get a refund?

    Due to the upfront nature of event costs, we have a uniform policy of no refunds, or deferrals to a future year.  We know that plans change and unexpected things come up,  but we feel it is most fair to apply a uniform policy to all, instead of an arbitrary line of who merits a refund and who doesn’t.
  • Is it better to sign up early?

    YES! Hang onto your hard earned money and be sure to sign up early. Prices for the Beerd Pass and the Ultimate Beerd Pass will increase by $5 on August 1st, followed by another $5 price increase on October 1st. Use your savings to somehow better your beard, duh!
  • Help! I don’t have a beard! Should I go faux?

    No worries! We will have fake beards on sale, day of, for all those "beardly challenged". You could also get creative with one from a local costume shop or online. We will have on-site face painting, so even the smallest of supporters can partake in the facial hair festivities.
  • Do I have to have a beard to participate in the race?

    While we encourage all participants to sport one, it’s not a requirement. Beerd Run is all about embracing the wonderful world of facial hair! So whether you're a man, woman or an incredibly talented child; show what you grow. If you can't, don't despair... just glue it there! 
  • I’m out of shape, can I walk instead of run?

    Of course! We embrace beards of all shapes, sizes and speeds. We're having one giant wave go off in the morning, so just try your best to not get trampled by a herd of sweaty beards and you'll be fine. If you're struggling, try hitching a ride on someone else's beard.
  • Can I sign up the day of the race?

    Procrastinator, are we? Put down that razor, get to growing and sign up today! Although we recommend signing up before the race, if the race is not sold out at that time, we will offer day-of race registration. Online registration will be available until Friday, the 18th (the day before the race).
  • What should I do after I finish the race?

    Enjoy a cold beer. Get your photo taken with all your friends (don't forget to use #beerdrun - we know you're on Instagram). Grab a bite to eat from one of our delicious sponsors. Play some cornhole, maybe a little beer pong? Vote or partake in the Best Beard Competition. Get another cold beer. Repeat.
