Our 2018 summer season is officially in the books! We had an absolute blast this summer, and except for a 15-minute rain delay during the Laurelwood run, it was perfect running weather all season long. Drew and I are so grateful to be doing this series, and couldn’t have done it without the generous support of our fantastic partners, and volunteers. They are the real heroes, and none of this beer run fun would be possible without them.
By The Numbers
This summer we hosted 7 runs this summer, with a total of 693 runners of all ages and abilities. We drank 783 brews/ciders and collectively, ran a total of 2,148.3 miles. Our amazing photographers took over 1,400 pictures of all you beautiful people (see below), and as best as we can estimate, we hosted no fewer than a dozen dogs and at least that many kids. We also raised (with help from your registrations fee) $2,078 to support the work of the Oregon Brewshed Alliance, Dollar For Portland, and Life Vest Inside.
And we’re not done yet! We have five more incredible brewery running events this fall. We will kick things off at Rogue in Newport on October 6. From there, we’ll head across the Columbia River and run in Washougal, WA at 54º40′ Brewing on October 13. Our brew crew then heads back into Portland to enjoy a run at the new Baerlic Brewing Barley Pod in NE Portland on October 20. Get your costumes ready because on October 27, we’ll be hosting a Halloween themed run at the McMenamins Kennedy School! And Finally, on November 3, we wrap up our entire year of beer run fun at Base Camp Brewing back in SE Portland. Five events, five very different breweries in five very different locations. Join us!
