WHO WE ARE: Colorado Brewery Running Series events are 5k-ish, fun-run courses that all start and end at local Colorado breweries. We welcome all runners, walkers, joggers, and spectators that are interested in enjoying the great outdoors and the great craft beer that Colorado has to offer. All of our participants complete a 5k course nearby each brewery. Afterwards, everyone hangs out, drinks beer, and enjoys local live music!
WHAT WE’RE ABOUT: Our motto = be active, have fun, give back! In addition to pairing some exercise and good beer, a portion of all proceeds go back to local non-profits, In 2017, we happily partnered with the Dumb Friends League, The Park People, Safehouse Denver, and The House that Beer Built. We are very proud that the Colorado Brewery Running Series has so far donated almost $6,000 to local non-profits!
WHAT’S NEXT: In our two short years here in Colorado, we have hosted 26 events at 20 different breweries, resulting in over 2,000 runners completeing our courses. As word-of-mouth spreads and awareness continues to grow, we are looking forward to 2018 being our biggest, best, and most brewtiful year yet!
A BRIEF HISTORY
The Brewery Running Series was started in Minneapolis in 2012 by Nate Herrington and Morgan Jappe. They wanted to combine their favorite things – being active, drinking beer, and supporting their community. The idea took off, and turns out, a few thousand other locals share those same interests! A few years and tens of thousands of beers and miles later, they decided to branch out.
The Colorado Brewery Running Series sprung up in 2016, and we have been steadily growing ever since. We hosted 9 events in 2016, and another 17 in 2017. Look out for us to at some of your favorite craft breweries across the Front Range in 2018!
