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

Come celebrate the holiday season and join us at Midwest Coast Brewing & Goose Island for our annual Winter Dash 0.5K run that ends at these awesome West Town taprooms on Saturday December 3rd. Weave through the surrounding area at whatever pace you like, no matter what there’s a beer waiting for you at the finish line!

Yes, you read that correctly. A POINT FIVE K to kick off the holiday season. Come in holiday gear and bring the whole family! Half of the participants will start at Midwest Coast and half will start at Goose Island and you'll get a free beer at each!

NOTE: This is a rescheduled event from the December 4th event at Spiteful & Empirical due to Empirical closing its doors. If you signed up for this event when it was Spiteful & Empirical, you are automatically added to this Midwest Coast/Goose Island Dec 3 event and will receive an email the week of the event telling you which brewery you begin your dash at!

What’s included?! All participants receive:

  • FREE craft brew from Midwest Coast
  • FREE craft brew from Goose Island
  • 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!
