Hops Run 5K
The “hops” in Hops Run 5k’s title is a pun, as you can tell by the race’s mascot: a pink rabbit, clad in running clothes and holding a foaming mug of beer. The rabbit fits, since the event takes place on Easter weekend; the beer fits because the race ends with a finish-line breakfast that, like all good breakfasts, comes with craft beer pairings. Even the silliness of a rabbit in short-shorts fits this race’s spirit. Not only are racers encouraged to wear outlandish costumes, but in the midst of the 5K course, they take a break from running to conquer a goofy challenge and meet St. Louis Cardinals mascot Fredbird. Who knew a rabbit drinking cartoon beer could capture so much about a 5K?
