2019 is upon us and the Oregon Brewery Running Series will begin the year by kicking off their season at Von Ebert Brewing in the Pearl District on February 9th, 2019. Combining running, with beer, these run events will definitely please any crowd.
For those who have never attended a Oregon Brewery Running Series event, you are really missing out! Participants walk/ run approximately a 5k (3.1 miles), which start and end at local breweries around the Portland area. All finishers are awarded with some amazing swag and celebratory beer (or non alcoholic beverages for those under 21) after each race and 10% of the proceeds help support their nonprofit partners, the Oregon Brewshed Alliance, Dollar For Portland, and Life Vest Inside. Believe it or not, but these events are family friendly, strollers are welcome!
Von Ebert Brewing is located in the Pearl District, downtown Portland. It will be a great destination to kick off the 2019 season. At the finish line, there will be live music, great beverages and food, as well as sponsor giveaways. Everyone is a winner at Oregon Brewery Running Series events.
It is recommended to arrive at least 30 minutes before the race, plenty of time to park, and check in. The course will feature an out and back, and is considered an “open” course, meaning that the roads on the course will not be closed. Make sure to pay attention and follow the rules of the road, when on the course. There are many volunteers throughout the course, to help participants along the way.
Registration is limited, you don’t want to miss this amazing run put on by Oregon Brewery Running Series at Von Ebert Brewing.
