Have you ever had a S’more Stout beer from Base Camp Brewing Company? Come to the Oregon Brewery Running Series 5k Run at Basecamp Brewing on November 2nd, and you can celebrate with a free one, roasted marshmellow and all. Yep, really, they do that. The Oregon Brewery Running Series will be celebrating Base Camp’s anniversary, just as they did last year when I had the good fortune to attend with my husband. Spoiler alert: We had a great time!!
If you’re new to the Oregon Brewery Running Series and you like beer and running (or even if you don’t, honestly,) you gotta check it out. Instructions for a brewery run are listed below!
Show up at Basecamp Brewing at 10:30AM (at the latest) on November 2nd so you can park and get all checked in (don’t forget your ID!) for your 11:00AM run. It’s an untimed 5k(ish) route that’s casual and fun. Roads will NOT be closed down for this, so please watch for traffic and say “thank you” to all the volunteers spending their Saturday helping you get back to the brewery safely. After you finish running or strolling the course, you’ll end up back at the brewery where you started, and you’ll get a pint glass or a piece of seasonal swag to reward yourself with. In addition to that, you’ll score a free beer on non-alcoholic drink.
Live music, great food for purchase, and raffles await you after the race. The cost of this event is only $30 and 10% of the proceeds will support nonprofit partners, the Oregon Brewshed Alliance, Dollar For Portland, and Life Vest Inside.
So to recap a few things worth keeping in mind if you’re a newbie: Bring your ID, get there early, follow the rules of the road, and most importantly, relax and have fun! Additionally, note that there’s no bag check, so leave your valuables in your locked car or secured somewhere else. Also, this event is rain or shine, and in November, you might want to plan accordingly!!
Since this is a fun run, you won’t get a medal or be timed, but that’s part of the fun! Come out and bring some friends!
