Race Preview: 2017 Bite of Bend 5k Beer Run

When you’re a runner, you look forward to fun summer runs and a refreshing beer to celebrate afterwards. But why wait? If you want to get the experience of both the beer and the run, come to Bend on Sunday June 25th for the Bite of Bend 5k Beer Run. You’ll enjoy some of the best breweries in Bend while running the course as well as after the race.

The race doesn’t begin until 12:00PM, so you’ll have some time to explore and enjoy some delicious Stumptown coffee courtesy of Crow’s Feet Commons. There will also be a selection of beer if you’d like to get the party started early. Please note that your ID will be required at packet pickup, as this is a 21 and over event. The $20 cost of this race ($30 after June 22nd) is well worth it, as you will get drink tickets for each stop along the course as well as a full-size beverage of your choice (including cider and cocktails) at any Bite of Bend bar at the finish.

This beautiful course will take you through Drake Park by the Deschutes River and back through Columbia Park. Along the way, you’ll enjoy beer from 10 Barrel, Cascade Lakes, Deschutes, and GoodLife Brewing. Once you cross the finish line at Bond and Franklin, there will be more beer waiting for you! Even better, the first 500 finishers will receive a commemorative Bite of Bend Beer Run souvenir. There will also be prizes for best costumes!

This event will sell out so register today!
