Some people sleep until noon on Saturdays, then eat a pile of donuts. Then there is a segment of the population that sets the alarm, seizes the day, and celebrates an active summer. We are looking for the latter group to run a 5k starting at Boom Island Brewing.
This unconventional “triathlon” is hosted by Boom Island Brewing with Studio ME and opens 9am at the brewery Saturday, August 22. Start the adventure with a 5K run from the brewery to the rowing stations at Studio ME (located next to Tugs on St. Anthony Main). Contestants will row 150-300 meters, based on a dice roll, before continuing back to the brewery for the third installment of sport: drinking. Each runner will receive a beer, but feel free to stay for the entertainment and company.
You’ve worked hard this summer. Join us for a run, a row and beautiful beer. You owe it to yourself.
Special machines allow participants to move a circular paddle through water to simulate rowing. Here, this skilled team of models demonstrates how fun and easy it is! No previous experience is necessary to enjoy this unconventional brew run!
The Boom Island Brewery and taproom are located at:
