About this Event
We are the Illinois Brewery Running Series™ and we run for beer!
Join us at The Perch on Saturday July 23 for a 5k-ish, fun run event that starts and ends at this awesome taproom in Wicker Park. Run, walk, jog - whatever goes! Complete the course and celebrate with us and a FREE, local craft brew at the finish line.
What’s included?! All participants receive:
- A FREE craft brew from The Perch
- 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, games, goodies and giveaways
- And more!
2022 marks our 10 year anniversary season! The Brewery Running Series started with one event in Minneapolis, MN in 2012 - we now organize over 300 events per year, across 20+ states and counting!
Our mission is to be active, have fun and give back to our local community. A portion of all proceeds support local nonprofits - over $250k raised to date! This event will add to that tally - supporting the efforts of various local Chicago non-profits. So not only do you get to enjoy some healthy activity and great, local beer - you are helping us support local organizations that do important work in our community.
Registration is limited, so sign up today!
- This is an untimed, fun-run. All levels of walkers, runners and joggers are welcome.
- This is an open course, meaning roads will NOT be closed. You are responsible for obeying all traffic laws and regulations.
- We create each route to start and end at the brewery and to show off the surrounding neighborhood. The course will be marked with arrows to help you know where to go.

- Our events are rain or shine! If conditions become unsafe to run, we will still hang out and drink beer.
- There will not be a bag check; please plan accordingly and dress appropriately for the weather.
- Dogs and strollers are welcome on the course, with care and caution. Please remember - you are running at your own risk on city sidewalks / streets / trails, which might not be suitable for your 4-legged and /or pint size running buddies.
