An uncommon race at the Commons Brewery 5k – a part of the Oregon Brewery 5k Series

Saturday, June 3rd is the date for the Commons Brewery 5k in 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! Commons is super popular among locals and really make some great and unique beers.

The run starts at 11a, but you should get there early – as parking is always a challenge around this location. As with most OBS races, it’s a pretty low-key event where beer and friendliness are the focus – first and foremost. 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!

Unlike their other events, this event is NOT open to minors. Plan accordingly!
