The Third Annual Flying Fish 5k -

Of course, the Flying Fish 5k starts and finishes from Flying Fish Brewery in Somerdale, NJ. It is timed perfectly for the release of the 2015 GABF Silver Medal winning Oktoberfish Fest Beer. So, this is guaranteed to be a party. Race includes:

  • Official Beer Mug for all finishers with Oktoberfish sampling for every adult runner!
  • Live Music from 10am-4pm!
  • Lawn game zone with Cornhole, Life Size Beer Pong and Kan Jam.
  • Food Trucks and vendors all afternoon at Somerdale Day Festival.
  • Family Fun Zone with Moon Bounce and more
  • Specials for groups, teams and companies!

The Race Starts in


Official Flying Fish 5k Tshirts

Online Sales are closed, we will only have an extra 100 shirts to sell at Packet Pick and Race day

This year, we are very excited to be offering new soft-tech material.  This is a super soft t-shirt that works both for fashion and fitness.  As a tech shirt, it wicks sweat and reduces chafing.  But, with the special soft tech material, you can also wear it out on the town.

The Beer!

Join Flying Fish Brewery to celebrate the 2016 release of the OktoberFish.  OktoberFish was the Silver Medal winner at the 2013 Great American Brew Festival in the American Style Amber Lager category. 


The Glass

As you know, each Brewery Run features a different glass to add to your collection.  When you are celebrating the release of an Oktoberfest beer, you really do not have any choice but to serve it in a great mug.  So, every runner will receive a commemorative mug at the finish.

Plus, as an incentive to help us raise money for charity, if you give an extra $20 donation, your registration will also include a custom 2016 Flying Fish 5k Growler ! Who could say no to that? 

The Charities

Here at the Great American Brewery Runs, we are committed to supporting our local community.  Every race donates a portion of the proceeds to and helps to fundraise for local charities that make a difference right here. 

Back on My Feet (BoMF) is a national for-purpose 501(c)3 organization that uses running to help those experiencing homelessness change the way they see themselves so they can make real change in their lives that results in employment and independent living




2016 Charity Growler

Presenting the 2016 FlyingFish 5K Growler and we are super excited. You can earn yours by:
a. Donating $20 or more to Back on My Feet when you register or
b. Recruiting a team of 10 or more runners to join us on September 10 and run with you.
