We are the Iowa Brewery Running Series and we run for beer! Join us at Iowa Brewing Company on Sunday, Oct 25th @ 12 P.M. for a 5k-ish course that starts and ends at Iowa Brewing Company and travels by the Cedar River. 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 Iowa Brewing! 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: live music, food trucks, local vendors, fun with our partners and sponsors, 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 $160,000 back to local nonprofits. This event will add to that tally! Willis Dady Homeless Services is a Cedar Rapids nonprofit and their purpose is to provide shelter and prevention services to the homeless and near-homeless. 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, 5k-ish fun-run. All levels of walkers, runners and joggers are welcome. This is an open course, meaning roads will NOT be closed.
