About This Activity

Join us at 10am on Sunday, August 2nd at Brit's Pub located in downtown Minneapolis  for a fun run 5k! Plus, a free pint, give-aways, live music, and more at the finishline!


It doesn't get more simple than this: walk / jog / run … drink beer... and raise money for local non-profits! A collaboration of Gear Running Store, Brit's Pub, and the MN Brewery Running Series.

You recieve 1 free pint, a collectors pint glass, runners swag, disconts on food, access to live music, entry into raffle of prizes, and SO MUCH MORE FUN!

Registration is limited, so sign up today!

We’ve mapped out an awesome course that starts & ends at the Pub, weaving through the streets & greenways around the sout end of downtown! But let's consider this an "un-race" as it goes against many principles of those fancy 5k races you may be familiar with. This is not timed and you will not get a medal when you finish. What you will get is a nicely mapped out fun run (with volunteers along the route & course maps provided), an excuse to enjoy the great Minneapolis outdoors, FREE beer and swag, and the wonderful feeling that you are supporting our local community. Remember: a portion of all proceeds go to benefit MN non-profits. 

Some more important things to note:

  • This will be an OPEN course, meaning roads will not be closed. You are responsible for obeying all traffic laws and regulations

  • You must bring a valid ID or drivers license. You do not need to be 21 to enjoy the course, but you must be 21 to enjoy the beer. Please drink responsibly. (Registered, underage participants will receive a FREE non-alcoholic beverage)

  • We run rain or shine! Please dress appropriately for the weather

  • There will not be a bag check; please plan accordingly

Event details and schedule

The fun-run starts at 10am sharp! Plan to arrive about 30 minutes prior to check-in to check out the pub, our non-profit & other partners and join the pre-run activities. Don’t forget some extra $$$. In addition to your FREE beer and swag, there will be merchandise for sale, a great menu of food (post-run lunch?), and plenty more beer! 

There is public parking on the streets nearby and downtown parking ramps . We always encourage carpooling and designated drivers. Is public transit an option for you? Check and see if there’s an accessbile route nearby.

Look for our informational email closer to the event. We will remind you of these details and share anything else you might need to know.

Cheers to beer! We'll see you at Brit's Pub!
