The Faster you run,the sooner you drink.


Making A Beer Run is a 6k fun run and beer fest, and your chance to combine your love of running with your love of beer! Join us on Saturday, October 15th for a 6k run on Chicago’s lake shore at The Field Museum for a day of fast feet, craft beer, food and fun! Every good party begins with a beer run. Do you have what it takes to get the party started?

First We Run...

Toss your name in the hat and find your place at the starting line. We need to make a beer run! Go for a personal best or simply enjoy the beautiful scenery while you run. The only requirement is that you have fun along the way. Just remember, the faster you run, the sooner you drink!

...Then We Party

Nothing brings out the thirst like a good, fun run! Cross the finish line and head over to enjoy the post-race party complete with craft beer being poured by several regional breweries and food available to refuel. Don’t want to run? Making a beer run is optional, just join us for the party!
