If you were to design the perfect running weather, most likely, you would create something similar to what we experienced during the StormBreaker Brewing 5K Fun Run on Saturday, March 3, 2018. The final run of our winter series couldn’t have been better! The sun was out, the air was crisp, and there wasn’t a drop of rain. 140 amazingly enthusiastic runners came out and enjoyed a lovely course along the Overlook bluffs in North Portland, then enjoyed delicious StormBreaker beer, and all around a great time. It was a fantastic event!
Franz Bakery was there again and gave away cookies, grilled cheese, and more baked goodies!
Our runners, of course, made the day extra special with their energy, encouragement for one another, and enthusiasm for beer run fun! We always ask how many people are new, returning, and who is running a 5K for the first time. This event had a great mix of all those people, and for some of the “newbies,” they said they may have caught the running “bug” and will run again.
We truly believe in the work of our non-profit partners, which is why 10% of our proceeds help support the Oregon Brewshed Alliance, Dollar For Portland, and Life Vest Inside. Not only does a portion of your registration go to them directly, but some of our participants do great volunteer work with some of these groups as well. We HIGHLY encourage you to click on those links to learn more about what they do.
Thank you to all of our volunteers, music from Phil Ajjarapu, and our amazing event partners; Franz Bakery, Spielman Bagels & Coffee, Laughing Planet, and Kind Bars.Their support and generosity have been remarkable, and we continue to be amazed at how much they contribute to the overall event experience for everyone.
Patrick and the entire staff at StormBreaker Brewing were phenomenal! You guys didn’t see the behind the scenes stuff, but they were terrific to work with! Make sure to stop back at the brewery often, and visit them in St. John’s when they open their new location sometime this spring.

Run With Us!
We have a break in our 2018 schedule until April 21. We will be running at Portland Brewing as part of the Hoppy Earth Day Brewfest.This event is different from our others. It starts at noon (not 11), and all participants receive VIP entry to the Brewfest, ten beer samples, Commemorative Taster glass and a $5 Taproom voucher good for the purchase of food or beverages (same day only). That event WILL sell out, so register here and join the fun of beer tasting, live music, more giveaways, and a challenging but rewarding course in the Northwest hills of Portland.
Until then, you can get caught up on our podcast or blog, and stop in at any of our brewery partners for a discount when you use the QR code on our event posters!
Cheers and don’t forget – get active, have fun, and give back!
