2020 St Paddy’s Day Brooks Beer Run Participants
As you likely know at this point, we are unable to hold the Beer Run on Tuesday March 17th due to the current situation. If you need to read up on what Coronavirus is or what you should do for it, just read one of the other 50 emails you received today.
After being notified about the required cancellation yesterday afternoon, we’ve been faced with the difficult decision of “what we do next”. I’ll give you a brief explanation of why we’ve made the decision to cancel the race in lieu of postponing it.
As you can imagine, being 5 days out from an event, we’ve already purchased all of the items and incurred a significant amount of the expenses for the race. Additionally, we’ve also eliminated the potential for additional race day entries. These items added to the fact that we are a small business without deep corporate pockets, we simply can’t afford to just refund everyone’s money. With that, we’re faced with a postponed race or cancellation. This one made us think, real hard. Ultimately we came to the conclusion that cancellation was the necessary step due to schedules, unknown possible dates, and ultimately the process of getting a state beer permit re-issued for a different date.
We want to make sure you still get the opportunity to pick up your race shirt and we’re going to do you one better…...When you pick up your race shirt, you’ll receive a FREE BEER certificate that is redeemable at 311 Drafthouse or Locktenders in Piqua. Packets will be available starting tomorrow (Saturday March 14th) at Can’t Stop Running Co in Piqua. Beer tickets may be redeemed between 3/14 and 3/21/2020 at the locations mentioned above.
Now the most important part! We’ve got all of our awards race awards that need to be given away, so we’re going to have a little contest! After you grab your shirt, take a picture (wearing your shirt) at ANY LOCAL SMALL BUSINESS with a receipt in your hand from a purchase made at that business and you’ll have an opportunity to win one of 90 awards. We’ll be giving away the beer steins and double walled growlers to 90 lucky winners! Here are the specifics:
Again, we’re very sorry the Beer Run was cancelled in 2020 but we’ll be back in 2021 and we’ll be sure it’s our best event yet!
-Ryan, Amanda, and Staff
P.S. - Still consider going out on St Patricks Day and supporting these downtown Piqua pubs. The cancellation of this event has a big impact on them also and we want to show them some love. Amanda and I will be out there, come say hi!
