What it’s all about:

The Rock ‘N’ Hops Brewery Racing Series brings runners of all abilities to a unique series of races that promotes local craft breweries, charities, and communities. Each city will host a 5k and Half-Half (6.5 miles) run and Beer Mile and will be followed by a beer fest of some of the local taps, music, games, prizes, and so much more!

The 5 Kilometer Run

You can run, walk, skip, or crawl your way through the 5k course. It will be chip timed and each racer walks away with some awesome swag and drink tickets. Open to all ages.

The Half-Half

The Half-Half is exactly that- a half of a half marathon or 6.5 miles. Runners and walkers are chip timed and you can multiply your time by 4 and brag to your friends about how fast you illegitimate marathon would be. Open to all ages.

The Beer Mile

If you don’t know what a Beer Mile is then it is something you have to try- or just come watch. We will have multiple heats for all skill level and teams with local craft ales on site for spectators to enjoy. It is a true spectacle of a race. Only 21 and older allowed.
