    We are the Iowa Brewery Running Series and we run for beer!
    Join us at 1717 Brewing Company on Sat, May 8, 2021 for a 5kish course that starts and ends at this awesome East Village taproom. Weave through the surrounding area at whatever pace you like, no matter what there’s a beer waiting for you at the finish line!

    What’s included?! All participants receive:
    FREE craft brew from 1717 Brewing Company
    Your choice of a collector’s pint glass or seasonal swag item from the Brewery Running Series
    Your chance to win sweet door prizes, like Brewery Running Series merchandise or a growler to take home
    Access to event festivities, games, goodies and giveaways
    And more!

    We are all about being active, having fun and giving back to our local community. Since our inaugural event (the Brewery Running Series was founded in Minnesota in 2012), we have been able to donate over $200,000 back to local nonprofits. This event will add to that tally! So not only do you get to a little exercise and enjoy a great beer, you are contributing to our awesome community!
    Registration is limited, so sign up today!

    Important details:
    This is an untimed, fun-run. All levels of walkers, runners and joggers are welcome.
    This is an open course, meaning roads will NOT be closed. You are responsible for obeying all traffic laws and regulations.
    We create each route to start and end at the brewery and to show off the surrounding neighborhood. The course will be marked with arrows to help you know where to go.
