From Good People to Avondale!
Do you run? Do you drink beer? Then we have the perfect event for you!
Here2Beer is a weeknight 5K running event that begins and ends with a beer at two of Birmingham's most iconic breweries, Good People and Avondale. Participants in the Competitive Division will start by drinking a cold 8 oz beer at Good People Brewing Company, will run a FLAT AND FAST 5K through the heart of downtown Birmingham and along the Rotary Trail, and will finish by drinking a cold 8 oz beer at Avondale Brewing Company. It just doesn't get any better than this!
Don't drink beer, but want to compete in the Competitive Division? Cold root beer will be available for non-beer drinkers in the Competitive Division. Simply want to take on the 5K and celebrate with friends afterwards? There is a 5K RUN ONLY option.
This race course is FLAT and it is FAST! With only 56 feet of total elevation gain, you will be racing on one of the fastest 5K courses in the greater Birmingham area! This event is pending USATF certification. All participants in both the Competitive and 5K RUN ONLY divisions will be chip timed, and Top 3 Overall Male / Female in both divisions will be awarded.
