March in Savannah means lots of fun activities swirling around St. Patrick’s Day. One of the many, many fun events taking place this year is the Savannah Craft Brew Race 5K and Brew Fest. There’s nothing like a great beer festival to make your day and adding a 5k to the event only ups the ante.
What is a “Craft Brew Race” exactly?
To be honest, minus the after party, a “craft brew race” needn’t bee about beer at all. Just like you don’t have to run to enter the craft beer festival, you don’t have to drink to join in on the run.
During the 5k portion of the Savannah Craft Brew Race, attendees have the opportunity to run, or even walk along a scenic course around Grand Prize of America Avenue. The race is a relaxed one – costumes are encouraged – but competitors will be timed.
Awards, including unique finisher’s medals, individual awards, and team awards will be given out at the end. All finishers will receive a participation medal that, appropriately enough, doubles as a bottle-opener!
Of course, the BIG prize for everyone involved, whether you run or not, is the 3-hour craft beer fest!
Over 30 breweries and cideries will be on hand (see the list below) along with food trucks, live music, games, and more. Once you’ve had enough run, fun, suds, and sun, you’ll receive your last token of the day: a special, souvenir pint glass to take home!
If you plan to go, you can either register online or do so on the day of the event between 10 am and 11:50 am. The 5k Craft Brew Race begins at noon and the brew fest gates open at 12:30 pm. Last call at the festival is set for 3:50 pm.
