We are the Illinois Brewery Running Series and we run for beer!

Come join us at Cruz Blanca Brewery & Taqueria for a 5kish course that starts and ends at this awesome West Loop taproom. Weave through the surrounding area at whatever pace you like, no matter what there’s a beer waiting for you at the finish line!

What’s included?! All participants receive:

-FREE craft brew from Cruz Blanca
-Your choice of a collector’s pint glass or seasonal swag item from the Brewery Running Series
-Your chance to win sweet door prizes, like Brewery Running Series merchandise or a growler to take home
-Access to event festivities, games, goodies and giveaways
-And more!

We are all about being active, having fun and giving back to our local community. Since our inaugural event (the Brewery Running Series was founded in Minnesota in 2012), we have been able to donate over $200,000 back to local nonprofits. This event will add to that tally! So not only do you get to a little exercise and enjoy a great beer, you are contributing to our awesome community!

Registration is limited, so sign up today!
