Peak 2 Brew is focused on providing the ever growing running industry with unique running events that challenge participants and connect people with Team based events.

P2B is focused on connecting and supporting local businesses, organizations, and charities. Our two main Missions are:

  1. Create Unique Team Based Events:

  • Promote a culture of Health and Wellness

  • Challenge Teams and Individuals to New Limits

  • Add the "PEAK" 2 "BREW" element to Events

  1. Support LOCAL:

  • Build Events to promote local areas in NY and Connect "PEAKS" to "BREWS"

  • Partner with local Sponsors, Charities, and Organizations and build lasting relationships

  • Provide opportunities for local communities to raise revenue for various causes

Peak 2 Brew was founded in 2015 by Race Director and Founder Jason Croniser with the help of other local central NY runners. Jason and the P2B Crew are native central New Yorkers who are passionate about running, connecting local communities, and love participating in local running and outdoor athletic events.
