Our motto is 'Run Local. Drink Local.' and unfortunately both the running and craft beer industry are seeing a massive hit due to large gatherings off-limits and breweries unable to open their doors. But as much as we want to, we can't just sit around and drink beer. No, we have to burn off a few calories before we indulge. So jump into the .1K (yes, only point one kilometers), 5k, 10k, Half-Marathon, or Craft Challenge {because we ain't no slacker} virtual run. The 24/7 Happy Hour Virtual Beer Run is all about combining our 2 favorite things: Running (or Walking) and Craft Beer! Sign up and join the community today! We will be buying prizes from the craft breweries as well as donating a portion of proceeds to employees assistant funds of impacted by covid-19.

How Craft Challenge Works

  • The Crafted Challenge is a test of endurance and logistics. The winner is the person that can visit the most Independent Craft Breweries over the course of a SINGLE RUN. You must have a pace faster than 12:30/mile, have a GPS tracking app, and Heart Rate Monitor. The winner of the Craft Challenge wins their weight in beer from a local brewery so we are making sure there are no cheaters. Send all questions to Info@TheRuniversity.com

Mystery 6 Packs

  • Mystery 6 Packs are optional at check out. We will pull all funds collected and purchase as much beer as possible from local craft breweries. You are guaranteed a 6-pack equivalent though some breweries may have extra beers for us to distribute. 
    • Not a Cleveland native? If 10 or more people from your city sign up for the Mystery 6, we will facilitate a pick-up in your city
    • We will not ship Mystery 6 Packs. Pick-up for Mystery 6 Packs will take place in early July. 


  • Top 3 M/F in each event will win a Beer and a random six will be raffled off for each race distance
  • Starting May 11, we will have weekly Spot Challenges to win beers and swag. Follow our Facebook Event Page and Profile for listings and results
  • Prizes will be for the winner of the Craft Challenge. If we see a high attendance, we will offer challenge to multiple cities so get your running club involved and we will work to make this happen near you!
  • Spot Challenges will take place May 11 through August 1
