Calling all Beer Runners, Introducing the Great American Brewery Runs!

The Great American Brewery Runs are the best of running and craft brewing.  We partner with the best local craft breweries to develop races that celebrate the craftmanship and dedication of those breweries and the beers they produce.

Like the brewmasters we partner with, we take great pride in our races. All races are professionally timed, courses are measured to the inch, and each race is executed with the same dedication.

Each race is also a festival, with live music, brewery tours and food vendors.  So, after you finish, you can relax in the sun, drink a beer and celebrate two of your great passions - running and beer.

In 2019 we are excited to expand to 11 races in 6 states, join us for all of them!

What makes the Great American Brewery Runs so great?

The Beer!

Every adult finisher receives a beer at the finish line to celebrate their run! But, this is not just any beer.  The Great American Brewery Runs are focused on celebrating the best beers in the country! 

We know there is nothing better than going for a run and then sitting in the sunshine enjoying a cold one.  If you agree, than this is the series for you!

The Swag

Each Brewery Run features a different glass picked especially for the style of beer that is featured.  So, complete multiple races in the series and you can stock your home bar with a full set of glassware for any occasion. 

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. 

This year we have already supported Students Run Philly Style, the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, Girls on the Run, American Cancer Society, Achilles International and Back on My Feet.  All are great assets to our community and we are proud to partner with them.  We hope you will help us support these great causes.
