Race Preview: Oregon Brewery Series – Laurelwood Brewing 5k Fun Run/Walk

If there’s anything that will motivate my husband to run, it’s the promise of a cold beer. On August 11th, he and I will be getting both when we go to Laurelwood Public House & Brewery for one of this summer’s 5k Fun Runs in the Oregon Brewery Series.

The races in this series are more about fun than fast PR’s and 10% of the proceeds benefit the Oregon Brewshed Alliance, Dollar For Portland, and Life Vest Inside. This untimed 5k can be run. jogged, or walked at your own pace with the promise of a craft brew waiting at the end, along with a collectors pint glass or seasonal piece of swag.

Due to the fact that this is a casual 3.1 race, streets are not closed down and routes travel through parks and along trails and sidewalks. There are awesome volunteers out there to cheer you along, but please do follow the rules of road, as you are responsible for your own welfare.

If you are new to the Oregon Brewery Series, please be sure to be prepared! Arrive 30 minutes prior to the race to get checked in, bring a valid ID if you wish to enjoy the celebratory beer, and come ready to run as there won’t be a bag check. Bring some extra money if you wish to purchase food, drinks (other than your one complimentary beverage,) or any Oregon Brewery Running Series merch.

There is a parking lot across from Laurelwood Brewing but you might have better luck parking on the street nearby. Carpooling is always encouraged as well as having safe designated drivers.

Laurelwood Brewery is a great brewery with fantastic beer, and me and my husband are looking forward to an afternoon without our kids to enjoy this event! Registration is limited so come on out and do it!!
