Join us. Run virtually!
Come join us for the 3rd Annual Shamrock Beer Run & Brewfest!

For 2021, we will be running this event virtually.

Unlike our other races, we must issue a warning: This is not your ordinary 5k race. Consider this a jog, walk, and/or stumble through a craft brewing 5k experience along the beautiful Lake Michigan Lakefront and beautiful Veterans park. Thanks to the amazing support from locally renowned Black Husky Brewing, this 5k Beer Run features a different craft BEER STOP every kilometer on the race course.

But wait.. there’s more! In addition to getting 31oz of craft beer included in your registration, you’re also showered with the best race swag in the industry. In addition to an awesome long sleeve tech shirt, you’ll also receive a custom race pint glass and a Finisher Medal… that doubles as a bottle opener!

And if that isn’t enough, this event brings together the support of 2 amazing local charities for an incredible local fundraiser for some of the best non-profit’s in our city! Check out the charity partners below!

Don't do 5K's? No problem.
Sign up for Brewfest Only!

We get it. 5Ks are not for everyone. But, you still want to take part in the festivities after the race, or better yet, quaff a few while your friends and others are out on the course. Enjoy the music, food, and comfort of the tents with tables, chairs and heaters (in case the weather doesn’t play nice).
