RUNNING. BEER. COMMUNITY. HIGH FIVES. We are all about the CollaBEERation lifestyle. We want to see you earn those beers and cheers like you just got a PR. 


Run like there’s beer at the finish line. (Because there is). 

Let chat about what makes our race unique.  We like running, beer, celebratory drinks, live music, friends and giveaways! All of our favorite things jammed into one day of fun and held only twice a year! We will host you in a beautiful 5k run/walk followed by an unbeatable after-race expo full of beer & cider, music, food, and giveaways! And EVERYTHING is included in your race entry!

GOODIES: Your race entry includes an event customized race hat (run hat style), a chip-timed 5k race, free race photo booth, entry into the race expo including beer, cider and food, and a swag bag with fun from our sponsors. You’ll also receive special discounting during the weekend at Shoes & Brews including sales and full priced items, with additional markdowns taken for that weekend only.

OPEN WAVE: starting at 10:00 am for anyone who is feeling fancy and believes they will have a time OVER 22 minutes for the 5k! Run, walk, jog, skip, pups, kids, everyone is welcome in this heat

Let’s talk about prizes and winning some gear:

That’s right, you will walk away with Oskar Blues cases of beer piled up high!! You can keep it all, share with friends, or throw one kick a** party to celebrate!

OPEN WAVE overall female and male winner will be walking away with some brand new kicks from our footwear sponsor Skechers Performance. 

Age group prizes: (21 and under, 21-30, 31-40, 41-50, 51-60, 61-70, 71 and amazing): 1st place in your age group gets you a growler and fill from Oskar Blues Brewing,. 2nd place in your age group gets you Crowler fill of your choice from Shoes & Brews!

Not feeling fast on race day! Don’t you worry: we have a massive raffle giveaway for anyone who hangs around through awards. This year, you’ll have a special pull tab on your bib that you drop into our raffle basket and then we will be pulling numbers for 100s of prizes: shoes, apparel, beer, accessories, gift certificates and more!
