SELMA TO MONTGOMERY MARCH | MAR 7-25

How long? Not long, because the arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice.

These powerful words were spoken by Rev Dr Martin Luther King Jr as part of the civil rights movement in 1965.

Weeks prior, demonstrations began as a result of violence and discrimination in Selma, AL. Activist John Lewis peacefully set out along with 600 fellow marchers toward the captiol to speak for change. The marchers were met with more violence at the Edmund Pettus Bridge on a day now remembered as ‘Bloody Sunday’ (Mar 7, 1965). 

Support came in droves. After successfully fighting in court for their right to march, Martin Luther King and other civil rights leaders set out again on March 21. The crowd grew along the way, reaching upwards of 25,000 marchers, and this time had support of President Johnson and the National Guard. By March 25, they made it to the captiol – covering 54 miles in just 5 days. 

This movement ultimately created the Voting Rights Act, a important piece of legislation that prohibits discrimination in voting.  

Inviting you to join us wherever you are and travel 54 miles in spirit of John Lewis, Martin Luther King Jr, and all those who marched in this historical movement for civil rights.

STRAVA HEART ART CHALLENGE | 2/14-2/21

Beer + Running 👟🍻❤️ Can you name a better duo?! We certainly can’t. The bond runs deep this two.

Join us in celebrating this perfect match 💞 Create a piece of Strava Art inspired by the love of beer and running – and we’ll donate to @stilliruncommunity – runners for Mental Health Awareness!

Here’s how it works: 
1️⃣  Prep your artwork (best to map things out in advance)
2️⃣  Travel the route (run, walk, jog, hike, bike, ski, skate – any wo/man powered activity is welcome!)
3️⃣  Share a post showing your route + tag us @usbreweryrun and use the hashtags #beerrunlove #stravaart

Get as creative as you like!

We’ll donate $5 per submission to the Still I Run community, supporting their efforts to use running as a way to remove the stigma of mental health.

Submit anytime between now and 2/21/22

Routes can be any distance.

More is merry! Feel free to invite your Val / Gal / Pal – entines along!

This Strava ❤️ Art Challenge is part of our 2022 #virtualldistancechallenge – our way to keep you active wherever you are! Registration is not required for this fun VirtuALL Distance Detour, but if you are registered and share your Strava Art – you’ll be eligible to win a Run Hoppy Goodie Bag! (@goodr sunglasses, Find your Hoppy Pace running belt and a pair of @fitssocks ) Winner announced on 2/22/22

Check out these tips from CO BRS owner and Strava Art Aficionado:

1. Map out your course in advance. Use the Strava route creator tool (google maps and / or Map My Run work too). This way you know where to go and how long it will take!

2. If possible, print out a copy and label each of your turns, so you can quickly and easily glance at your map to know where and when you are turning.

3. Be safe! Make sure you are familiar with the area in which you’re traveling. Keep your smart phone on you and make sure it’s charged just in case you need to call in a ride or find your way home

4. Use trails and streets to your advantage! City street grids are great for straight lines and zig zag patterns. Nearby trails or cul-de-sacs can help create curved lines or turn arounds.

5. For the start and stop, you can pause, walk around an obstacle (fence, alley, dead end, construction, etc), and then restart. Your Strava will connect the dots from where your paused to where you restart with a straight line.

6. BE ACTIVE. HAVE FUN! GVIE BACK! Your neighbors might be wondering why you’re walking around the block 5 times, but it’s all for a great cause! 100% of proceeds from this challenge goes to Still I Run Community – supporting their efforts defeat the stigma around mental illness.

Cheers to beers! Let’s show our community some love!

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.

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! Our goal is to keep everyone active, all year long! Email us info@breweryrunningseries.com to upgrade to a Monthly or Full Year Unlimited Pass and / or to add the magnet map at any time! 

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 location 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!

  • 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?
  • We plan to ship magnets after the last day of each month, based on your completed routes to date. We appreciate patience and flexibility with ship dates, supply chain shortages, and general hiccups that may happen in workflow.
  • Any add-on goodies – like the VirtuALL t-shirt or tech gear will ship after you register. 

For all prizes / rewards, please allow 2-4 weeks for delivery. We will try to save packaging and combine shipments if possible.

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!
