Join us – the Iowa Brewery Running Series™ – for fun run events that all start and end at local breweries.
WHAT WE DO: We organize 5k-ish, fun-run courses that all start and end at local breweries. No time clock, no pressure – just a really good reason to drink really good beer! We welcome all levels of runners, walkers, joggers and crawlers – it’s fun for the whole fam!
WHY WE DO IT: Our mission is to be active, have fun, and give back! In addition to pairing some exercise and good beer, a portion of all proceeds go back to local non-profits. Check our tally above to see how many dollars we’ve been able do donate so far!
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 Iowa Brewery Running Series is locally managed & operated by Audrie Lieb and Lauren Roeding. They are the masterminds behind the Iowa schedule and at the helm of ensuring everyone has a great run/walk, delicious beer, and a fun experience!
As long as there’s beer - we’re running for it!
