First We Run...

Who can make a beer run? Anyone! We encourage runners of all skill levels to join us for the scenic course covering 6k of Chicago’s beautiful lake shore. There’s no wrong way to complete a beer run. Challenge yourself to be the first in the beer line or simply burn a few calories before you get to drinking!

Every successful beer run starts with the appropriate supplies! Packet and swag pick up will be held the morning before the beer run gets underway from 9:30am until 11:30am on the South East terrace of The Field Museum.

...Then We Party

Once you cross the finish line, you can swap your running shoes for beer drinking shoes and head over to the post-race party to be held on the scenic South East terrace of The Field Museum. Enjoy beer from several craft breweries that will be pouring for runners and their friends and family and food which will be available for purchase.

After you catch your breath and your glass is full, grab a bite to eat and watch some “college football” on the terrace that will be playing on some of the largest led tv screens in outdoor entertainment! And when we say large, we mean large – including two 12 foot by 8 foot screens and one mammoth 20 foot by 10 foot screen for a unique outdoor “tail gaiting” experience you don’t want to miss!

The beer will be flowing from 12pm until 3pm. The party includes $20 in "beer money" which is good for full cans, pints and pours. Additional beer money will be available for purchase.

*Must be 21 or older to register and participate. All registrations are nonrefundable and nontransferable.
