Race Preview: 2019 Oregon Brewery Running Series at Oregon City Brewing 5K

The Oregon Brewery Running Series is bringing their first 5K to Oregon City! I’m excited to share with you how awesome Oregon City Brewing or OCB  is, as we ‘locals’ call it. Located in historic downtown Oregon City, this brewery has been around for quite some time, starting out in brewer Bryce Morrow’s garage. In 2014 the official taproom was opened, and today there are around 40+ taps of local beers, ciders, wines and house made sodas. In addition to a wonderful and plentiful selection of beverages, OCB houses a small kitchen where Olympia Provisions Public House whips up some tasty charcuterie boards, hamburgers, sausages and delightful salads.

Ok, enough about the beers and the food and more about the race! Saturday, July 27th is the date of the 5K . The course is fast and flat, starting at the brewery on the cornerr of Washington St and going across 205 down along the Willamette River on the Clackamas River Trail. The turn around will be at Clackamette Park where runners, joggers and walkers will loop around the trail, head back on downtown through main street and finish at the brewery.

All participants receive a beer (21+ only) or a non-alcoholic beverage of their choice. This fun run is on an open course, so obey all road signs and traffic laws. Bring extra money for food and beverage purchases if you wish. Plenty of street parking can be found, but carpooling is encouraged to alleviate congestion. There is no bag check, so only bring the essentials. Come enjoy beer made for pioneers!
