The third event in the 2020 Oregon Brewery Running Series takes place at Vagabond Brewing in SE Portland on Saturday, February 29. This untimed fun run starts and ends at the brewery, and it is supportive of runners and walkers of all ages and abilities. While the course map is not yet available, it will be a 3.1ish mile loop on sidewalks in the neighborhood of Vagabond Brewing.
As with all OBRS events, you’ll want to arrive about 30-45 minutes before the race starts at 11, so you have time to pick up and customize your race bib. You’ll also want to leave any extra clothing in your car and plan to carry your car keys and other essentials, as there is no bag check. The race course will be open (not closed to cars) and participants will be expected to stay on sidewalks and obey all traffic laws. There is no timing mat or even a clock, so you can choose to keep track of your own time, or not.
After you cross the finish line, there will be music, snacks, and drinks (one beer for participants age 21 or older). To make the choice on race day easier, you can preview Vagabond’s beer list. There will be a raffle for items from sponsors as well as OBRS swag. The cost is only $30 for the run, or $40 if you want to purchase a tee-shirt, and 10% of all the proceeds will support the series nonprofit partners, the Oregon Brewshed Alliance, Dollar For Portland, and Life Vest Inside.
