Running. Beer. Fun.

WHO WE ARE: Colorado Brewery Running Series events are 5k-ish, fun-run courses that all start and end at local Colorado breweries. We also host timed half marathon events with select brewery partners throughout the year. We welcome all runners, walkers, joggers, and spectators that are interested in enjoying the great outdoors and the great craft beer that Colorado has to offer. All of our participants complete a 5k course nearby each brewery. Afterwards, everyone hangs out, drinks beer, and enjoys local live music! All single events are $35 (unless noted) and include one beer, collector’s glassware or seasonal swag item and an invitation to enjoy the days’ scheduled festivities: live music, food, sponsor goodies, giveaways and more!

WHAT WE’RE ABOUT: Our motto = be active, have fun, give back! In addition to pairing some exercise and good beer, a portion of all proceeds go back to local non-profits, In 2023, we happily partnered with more than 10 non-profit organizations, and we are very proud that the Colorado Brewery Running Series has so far donated over $135,000 to local non-profits! Volunteer for beer! We’re always looking for enthusiastic, beer-loving volunteers to help us put on these awesome 5k fun runs. Want a free beer without having to run/walk?  Sign up for volunteer shifts via each event link in the section above.

WHAT’S NEXT: In our eight years here in Colorado, we have hosted over 190 events at over 70 different Colorado breweries, with nearly 50,000 runners completing our courses. As word-of-mouth spreads and awareness continues to grow, we are looking forward to 2023 being our biggest, best, and most brewtiful year yet!

HOW WE GOT HERE: The Brewery Running Series started in Minneapolis in 2012 by Nate Herrington and Morgan Jappe. They wanted to combine their favorite things – being active, drinking beer, and supporting their community. Turns out, a few thousand other locals share those same interests! A few years and tens of thousands of beers and miles later, they decided to branch out, sharing the concept with local organizers across the country.

The Colorado Brewery Running Series is locally owned and operated by – Brady Archer. He is the mastermind behind the Colorado event schedule, monthly virtual challenges and at the helm of ensuring everyone has a great run/walk, delicious beer, and a fun experience!
