2020 Yuengling Light Lager Jogger 5k is Now Virtual

Dear Yuengling Light Lager Joggers,

Thank you for registering for the 2020 Yuengling Light Lager Jogger 5k. The race will be moving to a virtual-only event, due to ongoing public health concerns and the guidelines of local governments. We explored numerous approaches to safely execute a live, in-person event and in the end we could not envision a way to gather together in compliance with safety guidelines. We understand this is disappointing news for all of us, but the safety and well-being of our participants, sponsors, volunteers, spectators and others are our top priority. While we are unable to celebrate in-person , we are excited about the opportunity to bring the 8th annual event to you virtually. We wish we could see each and every one of you in person this year, but like so many events and races across the country, we are going VIRTUAL! 

Thank you so much for all of your patience as we waited to make the safest and best possible decision given these unique circumstances. Even though we can’t be together physically, we will still be TOGETHER!

All runners registered for the 2020 event will be given priority registration access to secure your space at the 2021 Yuengling Light Lager Jogger 5k. We will email all participants when registration opens for the 2021 race, and you will have 48 hours to register and secure your space before it opens to the general public.

Per our policy we do not offer registration refunds. However, we want to make sure you can take a socially responsible run in style. Therefore, we will be mailing runner items to all registered participants. 

GO VIRTUAL! - (ACTION REQUIRED by August 21): Take on our virtual challenge! Run a 5k on your own time and share your results [Race shirt, race bib, and pins will be mailed beginning August 26, 2020].

In addition to the virtual event, you are able to collect your official race pint glass and redeem beer tickets attached to your race bib at the brewery gift shop/tasting room. Beer tickets can be redeemed at the tasting room through 03/31/2021 for any beer on tap during your next visit (excluding Yuengling Hershey’s Chocolate Porter). At this time the tasting room is unable to serve pints due to safety precautions surrounding COVID-19. We will email all participants once the tasting room has reopened.
