Race Preview: OR Brewery Running Series – Ecliptic Brewing Portland

Join Ecliptic Brewing on Saturday June 10th at 11:00 AM for a 5k fun-run through the surrounding neighborhood & streetscape. Participants may walk, jog or run. The course starts and ends at the brewery and provides guides along the way to ensure your route is safe and fun. Registration for the event is $30 and participants receive a free craft brew from Ecliptic Brewing and a collectors pint glass or seasonal swag item. Registration is limited to 200 participants.

This event is not timed and there are no finisher medals. It’s just a great excuse to enjoy the beautiful outdoors here in Portland Oregon, free beer and swag, and the wonderful feeling that you are supporting Portland’s local community. A portion of all proceeds benefit Portland non-profits. Visit the Ecliptic Brewing website to see who they support and why: www.breweryrunningseries.com

The course is open, roads will not be closed and participants are responsible for obeying all traffic laws and regulations. A valid photo ID or drivers license is required to consume alcohol. Participants do not need to be 21 to enjoy the course (registered, underage participants will receive a free non-alcoholic beverage). The event is held rain or shine, so please dress accordingly. There will not be a bag check; please leave larger items and valuables at home. The fun-run starts at 11:00 AM sharp. Participants should arrive 30 minutes prior to check-in. There are pre-race activities and participants will have time to check out race sponsors and partners. Plan on bringing extra cash for merchandise, food, and beer because in addition to a free beer and swag, there will be merchandise for sale, food, and more beer.

Public parking is available on the streets nearby. Carpooling, designated drivers or public transit are encouraged. An informational email will be sent closer to the event date with additional details and pertinent information.

About Ecliptic Brewing

Located at the very southern end of the historic Mississippi Ave, Ecliptic brewing is the latest project of Oregon brewmaster, John Harris, the guy behind some of Oregon’s favorite beers.

After beginning as a brewer at McMenamins’ breweries, John moved to Deschutes where he created the recipes for Mirror Pond, Black Butte Porter, Jubelale and Obsidian Stout. He spent 20 years of his career as a Brewmaster at Full Sail and was in charge of creating the Brewmaster Reserve line of beers.

The name Ecliptic Brewing combines 2 of John’s passions, astronomy and beer. At the restaurant and brewery, there are all kinds of celestial imagery, from the lights and partitions, to the beer itself.
