Race Preview: 2018 Oregon Brewery Series 5k – Base Camp Brewing Company

I combined two of my favorite things, running and beer, when I attended my first Oregon Brewery Running Series 5k’ in August. I enjoyed it so much that I’m heading to Base Camp Brewing Company for another one on November 3rd.

If you haven’t heard about the Oregon Brewery Running Series yet, you need to get on board immediately and come join the fun for a “5k-ish” run that starts at a brewery and finishes with awesome swag and beer to celebrate. These runs are untimed races where you can run, walk, or crawl back to the brewery where you will enjoy a free craft brew, a collector’s pint glass, or a seasonal swag item. 10% of the proceeds from these races go to the Oregon Brewshed Alliance, Dollar For Portland, and Life Vest Inside.

Base Camp Brewing Company is located in SE Portland, and this will be an awesome way to close out the Oregon Brewery Running Series for 2018. There will be live music, great food, tasty beer, and sponsor giveaways to enjoy after the run.

It’s advised that you arrive for the run about 30 minutes early to check in, and parking at Base Camp can be tricky. Plan to park on the side streets, carpool if you can, and don’t forget your ID. Also, roads will not be closed for the route, so be sure to pay attention and follow the rules of the road while you’re out there.

I’m looking forward to making this a day date with my husband, and I’d recommend this or any Brewery Running Series races for a good time with someone you love to have fun with. Hope to see you there!
