When a love for running and a love for beer come together, you get a sweet series of 5K fun runs dedicated to both! Whether you're training for a fall 5K or 10K (Island Vines perhaps?), or a longer race like a Half Marathon or Marathon, or just need some motivation to get outside and moving, this series is for you! Throughout the summer, we'll be hosting a series of mid-week 5Ks every other week from late June to early September.
Races will be held at different locations around the Burlington area and will feature an open start line from 4:45-6:00PM. Entrants can run or walk, get a chip-timed 5K on an accurate course, and enjoy a post-race beer/meal/music at the finish! These races are excellent for experienced runners who want a good midweek workout or race simulation, they're great for high school and college runners who are training for the fall XC season, they're a great way for newer runners to try out a low stress race experience, and they're an outstanding opportunity for joggers and walkers to enjoy a night out solo or with friends and support RunVermont's youth running programs. ALL proceeds for this series support our youth running programs: Mini Milers, Mini Marathon, Junior Milers.
We are so psyched to report that we kicked off the series on Wednesday June 28 back with our friends at the Essex Experience and their Trucks Taps Tunes weekly festivals, and wrapped up our series at Switchback Brewing on Wednesday, September 6.
