In 2014, we will feature a festival-style event after the race, with several breweries showcasing more than 18 of their best brews! There will be tons of great food from local eateries and lots of live music too! The event has moved to the wide open, four acre Lilis-Albina park where we will have plenty of room to party down!
The race still features many of the very unique qualities that set it apart from other events. We continue to be the only running / walking event to take participants over the Fremont Bridge, offering very unique views of the city! We also continue to provide lots of entertainment on the course, great race support, chip timing and a fun kids area.
Check out this list of great folks that will be providing some seriously tasty beverages for all of you to sample at this years event!
Beer tickets and pint glasses are included in regitration. Non-participants can purchase a guest beer package to join in on the fun!

ABOUT OUR BENEFICIARY: MOLLY'S FUND FIGHTING LUPUS:
Founded in 2007, Molly's Fund Fighting Lupus is a Portland, OR -based non-profit that is changing the way people understand lupus, its diagnosis and its treatment. Lupus is a debilitating disease affecting approximately 1.5 million Americans and 90% of those dignosed are women. Despite its prevalence, lupus is rarely understood and under researched. It can affect any part of the body, resulting in pain, inflamation, and systemic damage. There remains no cure for lupus, and it is estimated that 10-15% of those diagnosed will die prematurely due to complications from the disease.
Our support groups, online and local, serve the entire community of people affected by lupus. Through one-on-one client advocacy we connect lupus sufferers with services to address their medical and overall wellness needs-- like disability application assistance, prescription assistance, and legal consultation. Our Mission: to educate the public and the medical community about lupus, to push for earlier, life-saving diagnoses for those afflicted, and to spur governments and foundations to fund research toward a cure.
