We are the Oregon Brewery Running Series and we run for beer!
Join us at Ferment Brewing on September 18, 2021 , for a 5k fun run/walk course that starts and ends at this awesome taproom in SE Portland. Weave through the surrounding area at whatever pace you like, no matter what there’s a beer waiting for you at the finish line!
What’s included?! All participants receive:
-FREE craft brew from Ferment Brewing
-Your choice of a collector’s pint glass or seasonal swag item from the Brewery Running Series
-Your chance to win sweet door prizes, like Brewery Running Series merchandise or a growler to take home
-Access to event festivities, games, goodies, and giveaways
-And more!
We are all about being active, having fun, and giving back to our local community. Since our inaugural event (the Brewery Running Series was founded in Minnesota in 2012), we have been able to donate over $200,000 back to local nonprofits. This event will add to that tally! So not only do you get to a little exercise and enjoy a great beer, you are contributing to our awesome community! 10% of our proceeds help support our nonprofit partners, the Oregon Brewshed Alliance, and Dollar For Portland, and the Oregon Food Bank
Registration is limited, so sign up today!

Can I run with my dog? Well-behaved dogs are allowed on the run only but make sure they do well in big crowds. No dogs in the pub. Sorry!
What about kids? Children are welcome, but they can’t drink beer. Please be aware this is an open course, and roads will not be closed.
Can I wear headphones? Yes, BUT we’d prefer not. This is a social run, after all! Whatever you decide, please make sure you are aware of your surroundings.
Where can I park? Look for a spot in the surrounding parking lot. Please arrive early enough to find a place. Biking, carpooling, or public transportation will make your life better. ALWAYS be respectful of the local business and neighbors!
