Run Preview: Oregon Brewery Series Lompoc Brewing Co. 5k

Saturday, May 27th is the date for the Lompoc Brewing Company 5k in North Portland. Like other Oregon Brewery Series runs, this is a fun run – there’s a clock to time yourself but results aren’t posted – so come have a good run (or walk) with friends (or come to meet new ones) and then enjoy a beer! My personal favorite? Their Proletariat Red.

The run starts at 11a, but you should arrive by 10:30a at the latest. You’ll need to check in (bring your ID for a wristband, which is what you need to get a beer), and you’ll probably want to allow for time to find parking. North Portland can be a tricky place to find a spot.

You’ll be able to use the restroom at Lompoc, and they usually have some music set up. It’s a pretty low-key event where people are easy to talk to and everyone’s in a good mood. There will be some instructions before the race (mainly route reminders) and then you’ll be off!

The course isn’t yet posted, but OBS staffs a volunteer at each turn so you won’t get lost. Speaking of volunteers … they also get a beer after the run! So if you’re running earlier that day or taking a rest day, help them out!

About Author

We started the Run Oregon blog in February 2007, because felt like running in Oregon and SW Washington deserved more positive coverage. We also wanted to level the playing field so that small, non-profit races could compete with big events; and to support local race organizers.
