Miles for Meals 5k / 10k Fun Run
Join us at Saturday, April 17, 2021 at B-52 Brewery and enjoy a morning fun run through the surrounding neighborhoods. Walk, jog, run – it’s up to you! We’ve mapped out an awesome course that starts and ends at the brewery and our guides along the way will make sure you know where to go. Cross the finish line and celebrate!
This year, we added a VIRTUAL race option while limiting capacity for on-site runners / walkers. Virtual participants walk or run a 5k or 10k course of their choice – a neighborhood, the park, through the woods, it’s up to you!
Participants registered for the in-person event receive THREE free B-52 craft beers (or lemonade) and get to take home a collectors pint glass along with an event shirt and finisher medal. Bring the whole gang! Everyone is welcome to enjoy breakfast and lunch from local food trucks.
Virtual participants receive an event shirt and finisher medal.
- 5k – $45
- 10k – $65
- Virtual: $35
Space is limited, register now! T-shirts are adult unisex. Children 6 & under are free (does not include a t-shirt or drink tickets). Registration is nonrefundable. However, if you find someone to take your place, please email email@example.com with details.
Fundraise for your Miles
Whether you run the B-52 course or choose to go virtual, your miles can serve even more meals when you fundraise for your run / walk!
