About This Activity

A not-so-traditional run in Iroquois Park with an amazing after-party. This run isn't about who's the fastest. This is simply about having fun, acting like your crazy self, and oh having a few beers along the course. Every .75 mile you'll be treated to a specialty beer sampling. Once you've made it through the 5K course, we'll welcome you at the after-party with your choice of a 16oz beer. We'll continue the party with music, food, and plenty of drink all while benefiting Olmsted Parks.


That's not all! Every participant receives a 16oz Louisville Beer Run glass and an authentic Lousiville Beer Run t-shirt included with a paid registration. Additional glasses and shirts are available for purchase.
