Hops for Hope 5K is a twist on the traditional 5K! The event is timed and the course is certified, whether you are a runner or walker this event is for you. You can take a casual stroll with your friends and sip on beer samples throughout the course or you can run to get your best time and skip the beer stops (discounted price) or chug your beer and go.  

The 5K will start at the beautiful Mount Saint Mary Park in St. Charles and head towards Geneva on the scenic path through Wheeler Park and end back at Mount Saint Mary Park for the Award Ceremony!

THAT'S A WEIRD TWIST?! We think you mean delicious and fun! Throughout the 5K there will be Refueling Stations (Beer Stops) featuring local craft breweries handing out 3-ounce beer samples to runners. Throughout the 5K you will sample 6 different craft beers. At the Awards Ceremony you will be able to receive 2 pints of your favorite craft beer you sampled throughout
the 5K.

The Award Ceremony will feature a live band, more beer, local restaurants, vendors, awards (of course!) and our Adaptive Bike Giveaway. 

*All runners must be 21 years or older and show a valid ID day of the race. Per City and Park District Ordinance NO Strollers or babies are allowed. This will be strictly enforced.

**Race is limited to 1,000 participants

***No animals – unless they are service animals

Who is Project Mobility

Project Mobility is the nonprofit 501(c)3 organization of The Bike Rack in St. Charles. Our mission is to provide the freedom of mobility to children, adults and wounded soldiers with disabilities through adaptive cycling.  2019 had been a year of tremendous growth for Project Mobility. We are proud to announce that we gave 14 adaptive bikes to children and adults with disabilities.

Our Crew provided over 40 adaptive bike days with many different disability organizations, hospitals, and schools. We were able to give the freedom of mobility to many amazing people! Here are a few stories.

Junior: A father who ended up in a wheelchair from getting shot protecting his daughter.|

Avery: A child with such a rare gene mutation only 4.5 people out of 10 million world-wide have it. 

Tynan: A child that was almost 5 years old that underwent an anatomical left hemispherectomy, in which surgeons removed the left side of his brain.

For 2020 we want to top those numbers and need your help!
Hops for Hope 5K will help us reach their goal by starting the year off right!
