WHAT IS THE COLORADO BREWERY RUNNING SERIES?
WHO WE ARE: Colorado Brewery Running Series events are 5k-ish, fun-run courses that all start and end at local Colorado breweries. We also host timed half marathon events with select brewery partners throughout the year. We welcome all runners, walkers, joggers, and spectators that are interested in enjoying the great outdoors and the great craft beer that Colorado has to offer. All of our participants complete a 5k course nearby each brewery. Afterwards, everyone hangs out, drinks beer, and enjoys local live music! All single events are $35 (unless noted) and include one beer, collector’s glassware or seasonal swag item and an invitation to enjoy the days’ scheduled festivities: live music, food, sponsor goodies, giveaways and more!
WHAT WE’RE ABOUT: Our motto = be active, have fun, give back! In addition to pairing some exercise and good beer, a portion of all proceeds go back to local non-profits, In 2021, we happily partnered with more than 10 non-profit organizations, and we are very proud that the Colorado Brewery Running Series has so far donated over $90,000 to local non-profits! Volunteer for beer! We’re always looking for enthusiastic, beer-loving volunteers to help us put on these awesome 5k fun runs. Want a free beer without having to run/walk? Sign up for volunteer shifts via each event link in the section above.
WHAT’S NEXT: In our six years here in Colorado, we have hosted over 120 events at nearly 60 different Colorado breweries, with over 18,000 runners completing our courses. As word-of-mouth spreads and awareness continues to grow, we are looking forward to 2022 being our biggest, best, and most brewtiful year yet!

The Brewery Running Series started in Minneapolis in 2012 by Nate Herrington and Morgan Jappe. They wanted to combine their favorite things – being active, drinking beer, and supporting their community. Turns out, a few thousand other locals share those same interests! A few years and tens of thousands of beers and miles later, they decided to branch out.
The Colorado Brewery Running Series is locally owned and operated by Denver resident – Brady Archer. He is the mastermind behind the Colorado schedule and at the helm of ensuring everyone has a great run/walk, delicious beer, and a fun experience!
2021 is our SIXTH year that runners have been enjoying beer run fun as part of the Brewery Running Series in almost every corner of Colorado.
Over 100 events and 50 Colorado breweries and counting!!
