Join us - the Michigan Brewery Running Series™ - for fun run courses 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.
The Michigan Brewery Running Series is locally managed & operated by Rochester residents – Catherine and Gary Jasionowicz. They are the masterminds behind the Michigan schedule and at the helm of ensuring everyone has a great run/walk, delicious beer, and a fun experience!
