FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

And other fine print details

Where do I run, walk, jog, hike, bike, swim...?
The beauty of these VirtuALL Destinations is you can be active whenever and wherever you would like! We recommend staying relatively close to home. If you want to run 5-mile loops in your kitchen, who are we to say no.
Are there COVID guidelines?
We LOVE this community and all the good things that come from bringing people together. The good news is, we don’t have to BE together to BE ACTIVE together! Please respect the current guidelines for COVID-19. Maintain social distancing and allow at least 6′ between you and anyone else on your trail. We encourage you to keep it to solo activity, or with members of your immediate household only – but by all means – text, call, virtually share the fun with friends and fam across the miles!
What time does the activity start?
You can participate any time of day, every day that you are able.
How does the tracking work?

After you register, you’ll get access to our VirtuALL tracking app where you can record your daily activity. Run, walk, jog, hike, bike, swim – any wo/man powered activity is welcome! Every mile you want to count, counts. Simply enter your distance for the day in the field allotted and see your mileage stack up.

Registered as a team? Each team member will be able to record / track their individual mileage in the VirtuALL tracker app and then you can all check your overall team distance. Work together to hit your goal!

So I have to manually record my mileage?
For the purposes of this challenge, yes – you will need to manually enter your distance in our VirtuALL Challenge tracker app. We definitely encourage you to use Strava (or another GPS tracker tool) so you can go back and reference if needed!!
What if I forget to track a run, or my phone dies, or....
Don’t fret! Email info@breweryrunningseries.com – we can help make sure any missing miles get accounted for.
Can I do this challenge along with other live / virtual running events or training?
ABSOLUTELY! We think this is a great compliment to keep you motivated for any live or virtual training program. Whether you’re tracking walks around the block or training for an endurance race, every mile you want to count, counts!
How long do I have to complete my mileage goal?
Short answer – all year long! You have from whenever you register until 12/31/21 to complete your selected VirtuALL Distance Destination(s).
Do treadmill miles count?
Yep!
How about stationary bike?
You betcha!
Rowing machine?
For sure! Any wo/man powered activity that can track distance can be used toward your milage goals. Every mile you want to count, counts!
What kind of activity isn't allowed?
Anything that doesn’t require your body to power it (e.g. horseback riding, or anything with a motor). We are also not currently allowing downhill skiing / snowboarding #logistics. But – cross country skiing is welcome! So is rollerblading!
There are so many options, some are short and some are WAAAY too long. How the heck am I supposed to pick one of these distances?
The variety is intentional! The goal of this challenge is to inspire people of ALL levels to be active. From casual walkers to speedy bikers, we’re all in this together! Check out this page for tips / more info on how to pick your distance

Some of these distances may seem out of reach for some. That’s why we’re trying to ensure there’s a range of available options. Perhaps a state’s perimeter is too far for you to go alone – remember, you can accumulate miles solo or as a team – consider inviting friends and fam to join you! Or maybe you log plenty of miles running but now’s a good time to mix it up! Biking is a great way to see miles rack up quick. The average rider travels 10-20 miles per hour; if you go for a couple rides per week, you’ll start to see triple digits in no time!

Are the distances certified?
Short answer – no, but – we have done, and will continue to do a lot of research to share as much accurate info as possible. Part of the journey is learning about all these amazing locations – and if you’re a proud local, or frequent visitor of any of these areas, or you simply notice an error, we’d love to hear from you! We’re all one big community here and we love to learn from each other.
Do I have to live in the state I select?
NOPE! We absolutely encourage you to check out any and all these VirtuALL Distance Destinations across the entire country. Go anywhere, go everywhere!

We hope these distance options serve as a fun way to not only keep you moving but encourage you to (virtually) experience and enjoy many parts of our country!

How do the prizes work?
  • For all registration types, you will earn the VirtuALL finisher’s medal and collector’s state magnet by completing your registered distance goal
  • If you registered for the Premium option, you will earn 25 points at 25%, 50%, 75% and 100% of your goal to redeem for rewards in our VirtuALL online store (100 points total)! For each milestone achieved, you will get a notification email with instructions for how to redeem.
  • If you registered for the Unlimited Pass – you will earn 25 points at 25%, 50%, 75% and 100% of your goal to redeem for goodies in our VirtuALL online store (100 points total, for each distance completed). For each milestone achieved, you will get a notification email with instructions for how to redeem.
  • If you registered as a team, each team member will earn prizes / rewards based on their individual registration type. In addition, once you all achieve your mileage goal, we’ll organize a virtual team cheers by helping you pick a date / time to (virtually) gather and toast your accomplishment!
When will the rewards / prizes ship?
  • Your VirtuALL finisher’s medal and collector’s state magnet will ship after you complete your distance
  • Goodies earned through points in our VirtuALL online store will be shipped within 2-4 weeks of you making your selection

About Us

The Brewery Running Series is about inspiring people to Be Active, Have Fun, and Give Back. Since 2012, we’ve been hosting untimed family-friendly 5K fun run events that start and end at local breweries. Through all things COVID, we learned there are many ways we can achieve our mission – and in addition to our fun run events, we’ve created an additional series of Virtual Distance Challenges to keep our community moving. It’s not about how far, or how fast you go – it’s just that you GO! Each of our 18+ state locations is locally owned and operated, but we’re one big happy family. Thanks for joining in the beer run fun!
