Join us for a 5k-ish course and great, local beer at West O Beer on Sunday, Sept 20 at 11 A.M.
We are the Iowa Brewery Running Series and we run for beer!
Join us at West O Beer on Sunday, Sept 20 @ 11 A.M. for a 5k-ish course that starts and ends at this awesome taproom near the Browns Bay in West Okoboji. Weave through the surrounding area at whatever pace you like, no matter what there’s a beer waiting for you at the finish line!
What’s included?! All participants receive:
-FREE craft brew from West O Beer
-Your choice of a collector’s pint glass or seasonal swag item from
the Brewery Running Series
-Your chance to win sweet door prizes, like Brewery Running Series merchandise or a growler to take home
-Access to event festivities: live music, food trucks, local vendors, fun with our partners and sponsors, goodies and giveaways
We are all about being active, having fun and giving back to our local community. Since our inaugural event (the Brewery Running Series was founded in Minnesota in 2012), we have been able to donate over $160,000 back to local nonprofits. This event will add to that tally! The Okoboji Foundation is the center point of community giving, providing leadership and building beneficial partnerships to make a lasting positive impact in the Iowa Great Lakes area. So not only do you get to a little exercise and enjoy a great beer, you are contributing to our awesome community!
Registration is limited, so sign up today!
