Race Preview: 2017 Oregon Brewery Running Series – Ghost Runners Brewery (Vancouver)

We are coming down the homestretch of the 2017 Oregon Brewery Running Series, and I’m not sure there is a more fitting venue than that of Ghost Runners Brewery.  I visited Ghost Runners once, and only briefly – not enough to really pull up a chair and stay a while. Of course I took home a bottle of their 5k IPA. Check out the recent Facebook Live video that was done with their owner (there are DISCOUNT CODES there).

This run is actually part of their 5 year anniversary party, which also happens to coincide with Halloween. Costumes are encouraged (with running shoes of course) as are kids and well-behaved canines.

The course is still TBD, but we have heard that all of these events do a great job with their courses. From what I remember of the brewery, it sits in an industrial area, so I wouldn’t anticipate much traffic along the way. As with all BRS runs, there is no chip timing, the course is not closed, and there are no finisher’s medals, but everyone has lots of fun on the course and at the after party. Roads will be open to traffic, and you are expected to follow the rules of the road. Race volunteers will be stationed at crucial spots along the way to keep you on course. After the run, enjoy a brew from Ghost Runners (maybe try their Pre-HOPtaine), and you’ll go home with some swag from the brewery, the run series, or other sponsors.
