We know you have signed up to a Rat Race event because you love challenges. But getting some hearty grub and a quality drink should not be one of them. Therefore, Rat Race work hard to bring you some of the finest running fuel options on the market.


The Beerstalker Gastro-Pub marquee with live post-run music


Having taken on everything that the Runstock course can throw at you, the question is – can you push on? Of course you can. Our bar in the Beerstalker Gastro-Pub marquee will be on hand to offer a slick kitchen and bar service with live music on Saturday evening.

Picnicing in the campsite is part of the fun but please have plans to take your litter and recycling home with you. Please do not bring your own food and drink into the Beerstalker marquee so we can run this licensed premises as smoothly and comfortably as possible for those purchasing food and bev from the onsite concessions.



At Runstock we will have an array of food options available in and around our Beerstalker marquee to get that vital fuel before, during and after taking on the course! To give you a flavour, here is what was available at Runstock in 2019 with pasta being added for 2020.


Runstock is about staying hydrated while running and kicking back when the challenge is done.

Our Beerstalker in the main tent will be on hand to serve you wine, gin, cider, real ale and draft lager while you dance the night away to our Saturday night live band. Here is what was available in 2019. Our venue is a licensed premise and we want to create an environment that is both fun and responsible. Please therefore take note of these points relating to the consumption of alcohol.
