Most everyone rewards themselves with a treat after a long run, whether that's in the form of a root-beer float or a long nap. For Minneapolis residents Nate Herrington and Morgan Jappe, that reward tends to be a pint of ice-cold beer. In 2012, they combined their passions for running and drinking beer to create the Brewery Running Series.
The series—which quickly expanded to states across the country—invites runners, walkers, and joggers to traverse a 5K course. Upon completion, the celebration begins with live music, activities, and, of course, free beer. All the fun is for a good cause, too. The proceeds from Brewery Running Series's events benefit local nonprofit organizations.
