It doesn’t get more simple than this: walk / jog / run … drink beer … and raise money for the Parks! This will be our inaugural Brewery Running Series event at Lakes & Legends Brewing Company and it is sure to be a great time!
Join us at 11AM on Saturday, May 21st at Lakes & Legends and enjoy a 5k-ish fun-run around the Loring Park neighborhood on the southside of Downtown! You can walk, jog, run… no one cares. We’ve mapped out an awesome course that starts and ends at the brewery, routing through Loring Park, around the Sculpture Gardens and along the streetscape of the neighborhood! Our guides along the way will make sure you know where to go.
Cross the finish line and celebrate!
All participants receive a FREE Lakes & Legends Belgian ale and get to take home a collectors pint glass or seasonal swag item – plus a few extras! Bring the whole gang! Everyone is welcome to stick around and enjoy a neighborhood-feel setup & entertainment, including: live music, local artists, food trucks, and fun with other partners from around the area!
Plus, you are invited to come at 10:15am to enjoy yoga held at the brewery, led by YogaFit of Loring Park!
Registration is limited, so sign up today!
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 an excuse to enjoy the great Minnesota 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. Check our website to see who we support and why: www.breweryrunningseries.com!
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 driver’s 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
