WHAT IS THE BREWERY RUNNING SERIES?/ running. beer. fun.

WHO WE ARE: Illinois Brewery Running Series events are 5k-ish, fun-run courses that all start and end at local Illinois breweries, primarily in the Chicago area at this time. We welcome all runners, walkers, joggers, and spectators that are interested in enjoying the great sights/streetscape around Chicagoland and the great craft beer that our breweries have to offer. All of our participants complete a 5k course nearby each brewery. Afterwards, everyone hangs out, drinks beer, and enjoys local live music!

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!

A BRIEF HISTORY: 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 Illinois Brewery Running Series is locally managed & operated by fellow Chicagoan’s with Serena & Rob at the helm of ensuring everyone has a great run/walk, delicious beer, and a fun experience!
