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

See you at Marz Community Brewing on June 18 in celebration of Father's Day. Fun run starts from the taproom at 11:00AM

We've mapped out a 5k-ish course that starts and ends at Marz and weaves throughout the Bridgeport neighborhood of Chicago. Run, walk, jog - whatever goes! All ages, all levels are welcome.

Cross the finish line and celebrate! All participants receive:

  • A FREE craft brew from Marz
  • Choice of a collector’s pint glass or seasonal swag item from the Brewery Running Series
  • A chance to win sweet door prizes, like Brewery Running Series merchandise or beer to take home
  • Access to event festivities like live music, games, goodies and giveaways
  • And more!

Our mission is to be active, have fun and give back to our local community. A portion of all proceeds from our events support local nonprofits - over $350k raised to date! This event will add to that tally. 10% goes directly to local organizations like Chicago Parks Foundation, Chicago Run, and more. 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 to the size of the taproom and many of our events sell out. Sign up today!

Important details:

  • 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.
  • You must bring a valid ID or driver's license. You do not need to be 21 to enjoy the event, but you must be 21 to enjoy the beer. Please drink responsibly. Registered, underage participants will receive a token for a FREE non-alcoholic beverage.
  • 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. You will also want to check with the brewery to make sure you can abide by their dog / underage policies. Please make the best decision possible for your crew.
  • Please drink responsibly. We always encourage carpooling and safe, designated drivers.

Keep an eye on your inbox - we will send you all final event details via email the week of this event and share anything else you might need to know to participate.

About the organizer

WHO WE ARE: We are the Illinois Brewery Running Series and we run for beer! We host 5k-ish, fun-run events that all start and end at local Illinois breweries, primarily in the Chicago area at this time. We welcome all runners, walkers, joggers, and spectators that are interested in enjoying the great sights and unique neighborhoods around Chicagoland as well as the great craft beer our breweries have to offer. All of our participants complete a 5k course nearby each brewery. Afterwards, everyone hangs out, drinks beer, and walks away with some Illinois Brewery Running Series swag!

WHAT WE’RE ABOUT: It’s simple - be active, have fun, give back! In addition to pairing some exercise with great beer, a portion of all proceeds go back to local non-profits. In 2022, we are excited to partner with the Chicago Parks Foundation and Chicago Run, among others. We are very proud the Illinois Brewery Running Series has so far donated over $28,000 to local non-profits!
