The Beer 5K & 1/4 mile Walk / Tasting is an event that celebrates everything local. Local running, local drinking, and local charities. This event will bring together area microbreweries and the running community to enjoy a fun, athletic event with a relaxing beer tasting after party. The event will be open to the public with options for athletes of all abilities and beer enthusiasts.
We’re heartbroken to announce that, because of COVID-19 and current limits on social distancing and large gatherings, we’re postponing the 2020 Beer 5K Series. We waited as long as possible to make this decision, hoping that we could figure out some way to make it work. As a small team supported by awesome friends, we’ve brainstormed multiple options and came to the conclusion that we cannot host our event as planned. We’re working on a fun 2021 and you won’t want to miss out!
The Beer 5K will automatically transfer your 2020 registration to the same city for 2021. If you'd like transfer your registration to another city, please send us a message by May 31st and we'll take care of that for you.
We created the Beer 5K to highlight local breweries, support local charities, and engage participants. Our goal has always been about bringing people together to share a beer and support their communities, and this year, we'll have do that virtually. In each city, the participating charities help make the Beer 5K events happen by helping with set up and tear down, as well as serving you beer after the race.
While we recognize that it’s difficult to host a Beer 5K without beer, we also know that Beer 5K participants want to help their communities. We want to provide you a way to help our charity partners now, so we're launching the 2020 Virtual Beer 5K.
So keep frequenting your local breweries as permitted, supporting your local charities, and we will see you soon!
