We are the Oregon Brewery Running Series™ and we run for beer!

Join us at Xicha Brewing on May 7, 2022, for a 5k-ish, fun run/walk event that starts and ends at this awesome taproom in Salem. Run, walk, jog – whatever goes! Complete the course and celebrate with us and a FREE, local craft brew at the finish line.

What’s included?! All participants receive:

  • A FREE craft brew from Xicha Brewing
  • 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 Xicha growler to take home
  • Access to event festivities, games, goodies, and giveaways
  • And more!

2022 marks our 10 year anniversary season! The Brewery Running Series started with one event in Minneapolis, MN in 2012 – we now organize over 300 events per year, across 20+ states and counting!

Our mission is to be active, have fun and give back to our local community. A portion of all proceeds supports local nonprofits – over $250k raised nationally to date! This event will add to that tally – supporting the efforts of Oregon Wild, The Oregon Food Bank, and Dollar For. So not only do you get to enjoy some healthy activity and great, local beer – you are helping us support local organizations that do important work in our community.

Registration is limited, so sign up today!
