Beer? Running? Both of these seem to go hand in hand nowadays. And why wouldn’t they? What’s a better way to rehydrate and refuel afterwards then with a nice, crisp, refreshing craft beer? After all, we are in Oregon and have a massive amount of local breweries ready to help you recover after running. What’s that phrase again, “work hard, play hard”? The Eugene Growl to Garden Mile is a quick and flat one mile run starting on Pearl Street and runs past Tap & Growler and from there is a straight sprint down 5th Avenue.
After the race the awards fest is at Gray’s Garden Center where they’ll have the local breweries, wineries, and cider houses are going to be serving up all of the tasty refreshments that will help you recover after giving your all. Whether you’re running a fast mile or just looking for an excuse to drink beer and cider all day this is the place for you to find your calling.
