Lager Jogger 2021 5K and Beer Mile

May 8, 2021

This is not just another 5K. It's the Lager Jogger 5K and Beer Mile! You can register for the 5K, the beer mile, or both.

Join us at 8 am on Saturday, May 8, at Great Raft Brewing for this one-of-a-kind race throughout the surrounding Highland neighborhood. Walk, jog, run… no one cares! We’ve mapped out a course that starts and ends at the brewery, and our guides along the way will make sure you know where to go. Cross the finish line and celebrate!

Wanna try the beer mile?
A beer mile requires a single participant to drink a full-sized beer, run a quarter mile, then repeat the process three times. This results in the consumption of four beers and the running of four quarter miles (hence the beer mile). You can also choose to sign up for the beer mile as a team of two, cutting your beer consumption and running distance in half. The beer mile can be run individually or as a 2-person relay.

Included in registration:
All 21+ age participants will receive a FREE pint of Great Raft Brewing beer after the race and some free food. Want a sweet souvenir Lager Jogger t-shirt? Be sure to register by April 29 to guarantee a shirt. Bring the whole gang! This is an all-ages event and we'll be hosting a socially distanced afterparty.
Some more important things to note:
• You must bring a valid ID or driver’s license. You do not need to be 21 to enjoy the 5K, but you must be 21 to enjoy the beer. You must be 21 to participate in the beer mile. Please drink responsibly.
• We run rain or shine! Please dress appropriately for the weather
• There will not be a bag check; please plan accordingly
• The beer mile can be run individually or as a team of two. No race-day sign ups for the beer mile this year so be sure to register in advance.
The beer mile starts after the 5K. Plan to arrive about 30 minutes prior to check-in.
There is public parking at the brewery and in other designated lots. We always encourage carpooling and safe, designated drivers. We have bicycle racks as well, so consider pedaling over.
