Designed to showcase the many great neighborhoods of Minneapolis & St. Paul, the Brewery Running Series offers a variety of causal 1 mile or 5k walk/jog/run courses throughout the summer.

All the while raising money for a local nonprofit, Bolder Options.
Color runs seem to be all the rage. Save over 50% on race entry to the Run or Dye 5K on May 4 at Harriet Island with this Groupon offer.
Run or Dye is making race running a little more colorful, one major city at a time. This 5K is divided up into four separate courses of varying lengths, each designated by a separate color––which also reflects the color dye the participants will be splashed in as they cross the finish line. Racers can choose to run the courses in whatever order they choose, but to move from one to the other, they’ll have to cross the aptly-named Dye Zone—a polychromatic free-for-all, where fluorescent color is thrown freely from all sides, allowing runners to splash their fellow runners or get colorful revenge on their friends, family members, and any cranky art-history teachers that happen to be walking by.
Unlike some races that rank runners by time, Run or Dye only measures success in color and fun, and awards prizes accordingly. While the safe-to-eat dyes should wash out of clothing, runners are encouraged to wear things they don’t mind getting dirty, preferably in white, grey, or another neutral color to allow give the dyes maximum visibility.
Choose from the following options:
- $22 for race entry for one (a $45 value)
- $42 for race entries for two (a $90 value)
Yelp Fit Club is back and Intern Tameka wants to take us for a 3 mile run. Running outside in winter? Is she crazy? Well, yes a little bit. Now that the holidays are over and it’s cold outside that doesn’t mean we stop running. Let’s motivate each other to stay fit in the new year while enjoying a beer (or two). Plus, running in below zero temperatures will is more fun with a few running buddies by your side. To warm up we will stop at a few of Minneapolis’ craftiest breweries and pubs to break up the run and get warmth back in our bodies. We’ll plan to spend a half an hour or so at each bar before heading to the next. This is a fun outdoor run so feel free to go whatever pace that feels most comfortable for you. The event is FREE, but an RSVP is required. To attend, each person MUST RSVP individually on this page.
