Test Your Olympic Mettle at Pub Crawl Pubtathalon

The Olympic flame may have been extinguished but the games of the first ever Pubtathalon have only just begun!

On Saturday, August 18 from 7PM-Midnight, the Downtown Elgin Pub Crawl comes crawling back to nine participating downtown establishments. Pub Crawl passports are available online on the night of the event for $10 each.

Crawlers who obtain passport punches at seven of the nine downtown venues will be entered into a drawing for a $500 cash prize to be announced on Wednesday, August 22. And because pub crawling is not just a game but a sport, the Downtown Neighborhood Association is also offering the first 30 to cross the Pub Crawl finish line a shiny Pubtathalon medal courtesy of Andersen’s Wedding Invitations at 27 N. Grove Avenue in downtown Elgin.
