Ruck, Run & Brew Mile

Cherry Street Brewing • 6640 Town Square STE 510 AlpharettaGA  30005 Organized by Five Star NTP

About this event


Cherry Street is at it again! This time they are raising funds to help bring one of Forsyth County's own home. Currently serving in Japan for the last 3 years, Cpl. Cook would like to come home to see his family like so many others. Our mission through this race is to offer our servicemen the brief respite they deserve.

This time of year as we celebrate our Freedom, we Remember & Honor all those who served & continue to serve. Come out to Cherry Street Brewpub on July 10th for a family friendly beer mile. Ruck if you want, but it's not required. There will be three waves to choose from, the third wave being the family friendly wave. There will be a card/letter making station setup where participants (big & small) are encouraged to take a minute to write a thank you card or a note that we will collect and send off to our service men & women. Due to the fundraising nature of this event, only the 1st Overall M/F for the three waves will be awarded a gift basket. All participants will receive an awesome shirt to be revealed! In addition to the beer sample available with each lap, you'll also receive (1) Custom Finisher Medal & (1) Large Complimentary Finisher Pour (21+); juice/water for the kiddos. Kids may run free with purchased Adult ticket in the third wave; no shirt/swag/medal/bib.

We can't wait to celebrate & support our servicemen with you!

How does a Beer Mile work?

Beer Miles are pretty straight forward. Here is how we'll be getting that mile in along with your ruck/run & brews.

1. We've got a 1/4 mile loop at Halcyon.

2. You'll start your lap and work your way to the brew table. STOP, get a brew of your choice & FINISH it BEFORE you head off to complete your lap! You will continue on to your next lap & stop at the brew table with each lap.

3. Again, Drink a beer upon each arrival, finish it and do your next lap.

4. Repeat until all 4 laps are complete to get the mile done! Make sure you run into the Finish at the end of your 4th lap!

5. Smile, be aware of your fellow participants, be safe & most importantly, Have fun!
