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

Join us at Filmore13 AND Exferimentation on Leap Day, February 29, 2020 @ 10:30 am for a 0.5k-ish or 5k-ish course that starts at Filmore 13 and ends at Exferimentation to celebrate Leap Day. 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:

TWO FREE craft brews! One from Filmore 13 and one from Exferimentation
Special Leap Year, Leap Beer winter hat

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: Beer Olympics, food , local vendors, fun with our partners and sponsors, goodies and giveaways

And more!

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! 10% of all proceeds goes directly to CASA STEM a local organization that helps pay for STEM trips for local schools. 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!
