Race Preview: 2019 Oregon Brewery Series – McMenamins Kennedy School 5k Fun Run

There are many things that the Pacific Northwest is known for, and beer is certainly one of them. So is running, and so are the McMenamins pubs. So how better to combine all three with the Oregon Brewery Series latest and greatest McMenamins Kennedy School 5k Fun Run on Saturday October 26th? It’s right before Halloween too, so come celebrate!

If you’re new to the concept of the Oregon Brewery Series runs, there are just a few details you should be aware of. The first is this is a “fun run” which means you can walk, jog, sprint, or anything in between. This is not so much a race as an opportunity to have a good time and get a good sweat in as well. The second is that despite the fact that there will be friendly volunteers out there to help lead the way, the roads will not be closed down and you should obey all rules of the road and be safe. The third is you should plan to get there 30 minutes early (race starts at 11:00AM, so that means be there at 10:30AM) so you have time to park and get checked in. And lastly, bring your ID and plan for some fun!!

The cost of this fun event is only $30 and 10% of the proceeds will support nonprofit partners, the Oregon Brewshed Alliance, Dollar For Portland, and Life Vest Inside. All participants will receive a free piece of seasonal swag or a pint glass after the run as well as a free craft beer or non-alcoholic beverage. There will also be live music and some giveaways, so stick around and grab some Scooby Snacks or some other yummy McMenamins food.

This race will happen rain or shine, so be prepared for anything in this October weather!!
