Mikkeller Running Club (MRC) is coming to Toronto! MRC was established in 2014 by legendary brewer Mikkel Borg Bjergsø and MRC President Søren Runge. The club has taken off around the world with chapters in Copenhagen, Paris, London, Chicago, Philadelphia, Brooklyn, Boston, Norfolk, San Francisco, Montreal, Barcelona, Sao Paolo, Aarhus, and Reykjavik with new clubs opening every month.
MRC’s newest chapter in Toronto will be spearheaded by Tej Sandhu and Dan Grant; the same two behind Toronto’s RunTOBeer crew. The opportunity to bring MRC to Toronto came while Tej was travelling to London, UK in January where he ran with the local MRC chapter on their inaugural run.
MRC Toronto will be based out of Bier Markt King West. After the initial runs, Bier Markt King West will be offering Mikkeller products currently available in the LCBO, and discussions have been started to bring exclusive Mikkeller product in for club members only.
Speed is not the main goal for Mikkeller Running Club. Having fun in a great social environment is our top priority. Every first Saturday of the month MRC will meet for a training session starting and ending at our clubhouse. After running we share a couple of beers, with the first round on the house for members only!
To join MRC Toronto, members must purchase the Mikkeller Running Club T-Shirt (~$15 CAD + shipping), available here: http://shop.mikkeller.dk/shop/merchandise/mikkeller-running-club-membership/
The inaugural run takes place at 12:00pm on June 6 at Bier Markt King West!
