Virtual Race Preview: Bell’s Run Hoppy 5K and Stroll

Editor’s note: I love beer. After now having visited over 560 different breweries, it’s fair to say I have sampled a lot of beer (follow me on Untappd). From post-race pints and run club meeting locations, to beer miles and relays, running and the kegged nectar seem to go hand-in-hand in Oregon. While I have not been to Bell’s, headquartered in Michigan, their name often precedes itself in the craft beer world. In fact, their Two Hearted Ale has been voted best beer in the country…for three consecutive years. So, technically this race isn’t “local”, but with virtual races – it’s really as local as you want to make it. Read on for the details

Bell’s Run Hoppy 5K and Stroll is going virtual for its 3rd annual event. In the past 2 years this event – put on by Bell’s Wellness Committee – was an employee only event. But, with the switch to a virtual event for this year, Bell’s Run Hoppy has been opened to the public. The proceeds from this virtual race will go to the non-profit To Write Love On Her Arms. “This nonprofit movement is dedicated to presenting hope and finding help for people struggling with depression, addiction, self-injury and suicide. TWLOHA exists to encourage, inform, inspire and invest directly into treatment and recovery.”

Bell’s Run Hoppy Race Week is September 28-October 3, but you have the option of running your virtual race anytime between when you register and October 3. You have 2 registration options. The free version and the swag version. The swag version includes a t-shirt and medal (if registered by Sept.18), but both options allow you access to the Facebook Run Hoppy group, a 15% discount at the General Store, and the ability to submit your time.

Register soon and go Run Hoppy! 🙂
