Run for Beer
These 5K-ish fun-run courses all start and end at local breweries. Participants can enjoy a good beer without the pressure of a time clock. Registration includes craft beer and swag items, along with access to live music, games, giveaways, and fun with the event partners and sponsors. What’s more, the Brewery Running Series helps folks get active, have fun, and give back by donating a portion of the proceeds to support local non-profits such as Dream Catchers.

About Brewery Running Series
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 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 and then celebrate their accomplishment with a craft beer from the host brewery + games, goodies and giveaways. All the fun is for a good cause, too. The proceeds from Brewery Running Series's events benefit local nonprofit organizations. COVID event guidelines in place to keep all participants and staff safe. Specific event details to be shared with all registered participants.
