HOW IT WORKS
This is a 5k Run/Walk suitable for competitive runners but also very suitable for walkers. You can expect 10-20% of runners to be competitive, 30% will be fun runners, and approximately 50% of participants are just there to walk the course and enjoy the festivities.
Parking and space are limited for this event, so we recommend checking in 30-60 minutes prior to your wave start.
The 5K will be an out & back course through the scenic Busse Woods Forest Preserve. This is a beautiful course with some small inclines and features a wooded area and view of the lake.
DON’T LIKE BEER?
We’ll also be featuring Boston Beer Company’s other great brews including Twisted Tea and Angry Orchard Cider.
