There's only one spot along the Kalamazoo Marathon route that allows you to see the runners heading out and returning as well as enjoy great craft beer and music - it's with 107.7 RKR at Arcadia Ales.

Plan to join us for your marathon viewing part at Arcadia Ales at 701 E. Michigan Avenue in Kalamazoo. Big Finish Marathon Beer will be on tap. Joe Wing and the Test Pilots will provide live music. Arcadia Ales will provide a breakfast buffet for just $8. And a Cheer Station will allow you to make personalized signs and banners.

How to Get to Arcadia Ales

From their website, here are the best directions on race day:

The marathon will limit access to Arcadia Brewing Company Kalamazoo’s parking lot. Utilize nearby parking lots around the corner on Harrison St. and across Michigan Ave. Sidewalks will be open all day long, so walk or bike to join the party! And if you’re really ambitious, you can kayak to Arcadia and dock at the beer garden river access.
