About this Event

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

Come celebrate the holiday season and join us at Spiteful Brewing & Empirical Brewing for our annual Winter Dash 0.5K run that ends at these awesome Ravenswood taprooms. 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 Empirical and half will start at Spiteful and you'll get a free beer at each!

What’s included?! All participants receive:

  • FREE craft brew from Spiteful
  • FREE craft brew from Empirical
  • 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!
