About This Activity

This is one of the most challenging 5K courses in the region.  

Do not attempt this series if you are afraid of hills (up or down). Almost 1000 feet of total elevation change!

Do not do this series if you do not like to run off road.

Do not attempt this series if you don't like to run on Satan's tar.

Do not do this series if a free beer at the finish is unappealing to you.

You have been warned.

The Can You DEW It! 5K Summer Happy Hour Point Series will be held one Thursday evening per month (May - September). You can register per event or for the whole series, but only registered runners earn the free beer at the finish!  Proceeds from this event will benefit the Hockessin Historical Society.

The Breakdown: Series registration (ALL 5) enters you in all 5 races.  You get the one-of-a-kind, very cool Can You DEW It! custom t shirt and you get a free pint of your favorite Dew Point Brewing Co. beer after each race.  You also get a meal ticket for the food du jour for the evening (pizza or a Roots Kitchen Bowl!).  Per event registrations/day of registrations will get the free beer and meal ticket, but the t-shirt is purchased separately.

The course is top secret, until you DEW your first event (the elevation chart is the race banner logo).  Each race will start and finish from the Dew Point Brewing Co. 2878 Creek Rd, Yorklyn, DE 19736

Don't do these events if you're looking for a medal or some sort of materialistic pat-on-the-back after each race, age group prizes or special recognition because you've turned your short term suffering into some sort of masochist pleasure treasure in your mind. You get a beer and food when you're done each race. If you want more than one beer you can purchase it or barter with someone that doesn't want theirs.  Drink responsibly.

This is a point series however and there will be 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place prizes (more than likely gift cards to fabulous local eateries or something like this of equal awesomeness that will make your running the 15.5 miles (3.1 x 5) as fast as you can, worth your while) for those point leaders come September. You get points for completing each race and whoever has the most points at the end is the winner, then the next person is 2nd, and the next person is 3rd...  There will be some sort of interesting tie-breaker if needed which'll be conjured up after the 4th event if it looks like a real barn burner.

This will be a fun, albeit challenging series! The quality of the beer is unparalleled, we'll make sure the food selection is up to par with the Delaware health code at minimum, and surely only the best like-minded short term pain enthusiasts will all be in attendance. We look forward to seeing YOU there!

Day of registration is available for $30 per event.  Cash or check only (there's no service deep in Yorklyn so CC is out). You still get a beer with day of reg, but you're not guaranteed any food. Make checks payable to Progressive Fitness Coaching, LLC
