Wow, what a crazy year it’s been full of unwanted postponements and cancelations. Good Time Tricycle Productions is excited to announce a fun and necessary changes to the 2021 festival initially slated for April 9th and 10th at the Atlantic City Convention Center.

The Festival team GTT has been working closely with Atlantic City Mayor Marty Small, the City of Atlantic City, Meet AC, Spectra, and the CRDA to bring you the first outdoor Atlantic City Beer & Music Festival to be held on Bader Field June 4th and 5th 2021.  We are excited about the opportunity to host our festival on the 142-acre piece of property, allowing for producers to create a fun interactive celebration while also enabling the festivities to be spread out for an open-air experience.  We are confident that we can maintain attendee safety while delivering the experience that some have come to expect from The Atlantic City Beer and Music Festival.

The Hops Trot 5K race is now on June 5, 2021.

The 5K with flavor!

In 2016, we had a crazy idea. A 5K with flavor. Those flavors… BEER.

We wanted everyone to experience cool beer spots in and around Atlantic City, and cap it off with an incredible time at The Atlantic City Beer & Music Festival. Browse around you’ll find plenty info on the 5th Annual Hops Trot 5K Run brought to you by DelMoSports & Good Time Tricycle!

The 2021 Hops Trot 5K Run course will be different this year. The event will be a point to point event. It will start at Ocean Resort Casino and finish at Historic Bader Field in Atlantic City. Our staff will transport your bag to Bader Field as you run, jog, and sip your way through and past some of Atlantic City's best beer joints, while tasting some incredible New Jersey Brews. 10:30 AM Start.

Year Four of Hops Trot yielded 800 registrants, and even with the chilly temps, the race still saw a massive turnout both pre-registered as well as walk-up registrants.

Included in registration:

  • 5K Run
  • 5 Beer Stops
  • SWEET Finisher Medal
  • Commemorative Pint Glass
  • Priority Entry into Session 2 (12pm-4pm) of the Atlantic City Beer & Music Festival featuring Less Than Jake!

The Hops Trot 5K is by far one of the coolest experiences for a 5K you can have. Running the Atlantic City Boardwalk with a thousand other people while shooting beers, wearing spandex and a blonde wig is by far up there in life achievements. An included entry into the AC Beerfest is just an added bonus. DelMoSports always provides awesomeness.

Hops Trot 5K was literally such a fun race! Camaraderie was ABUNDANT; this race was full of characters ready to have some serious fun! The views of the ocean were def a plus as we guzzled beer instead of water along the route. Strangers quickly became friends and laughter was a constant companion. Looking forward to a redo in April! Thanks DelMo team for all you do!!

I've had a fantastic time communicating with DelMo. They have been attentive, they have answered every question and inquiry I had. I always have a good time at the Hops Trot 5K, and plan on participating this year and upcoming years.

Ok, ok... I have to admit - it wasn't so bad. I got my exercise and he got my beer! Fun event put on by DelMoSports. The weather was not the greatest, the boardwalk was a little slick, but we were careful and took some pictures to have memories of our run.

Who knew running and drinking beer every 1/4 mile could be so much fun. Best of all, we had early access to the Beer Fest so there were no lines to try our favorite brews and try some new things like throwing axes and getting the high score on the Ms. PAC-Man machine. I raved about this event to all my friends (even the ones who don’t like beer) and told them to try Cider Beer because there was over 20 of them to try. I convinced them! Looking forward to bringing a big crew this year to burn some calories at the Hops Trot and then be a part of one if the biggest Beer Fest Parties in Atlantic City. It’s the Best!

The Hops Trot 5K is an amazingly fun event. It is much more than just a 5K…it is a 5K with beer and costumes and more beer! 8 beer stops along the run and early entry into the AC Beer Festival… what more can you ask for in a race? This event is a must do! The DelMo team does a first class job…as always!!
