This Event Has Been Changed to A Virtual 5k

We are very sad to announce that the live Brew Run 5k event has been cancelled for 2020 due to ongoing public safety concerns.  Please let us know if you would like to still support the event by running virtually (still receive your race swag, run any time or location that you choose, submit your time online) OR request a refund.  Please see below for more info:

Here Are Your Options:

Virtual races happen all the time, and allow you to join the fun without the crowds. You simply run the distance on your own, and report your results - we’ll send you instructions.

By choosing this option, we will transfer you to the virtual Brew Run 5k and will re-send you a registration confirmation with instructions on submitting race times. 

We understand. We hope you can join us next time.

If you select this option, we will process a refund for you in the next few days.
