It's Beer Run time! Get ready to put your spirits to the test during the Sixth Annual Tall City Beer Run (previously known as The Rootbeer Run).
Join Midland Athletic Company, Midland Run Crew, and our coolest new friend on the block – Tall City Brewing – for our annual friendly challenge in honor of John Thomas Butler.
This year, John Butler would have been 21 years old and we are throwing an EPIC party to celebrate his life! There will be running, root beer, beer, awesome race medals, and the best post-race party in Permian Basin. You do not want to miss this fun-filled event for the whole community!
This run is a fundraiser for John Thomas Butler Memorial Scholarship Foundation(JTBMSF). The JTBMSF is a Permian Basin area scholarship and student financial aid service in Midland, TX. It was founded in 2018 by the loved ones of John Butler, a member of the MHS Cross Country team, track team, and SGY ministry who passed away in a tragic accident in 2017. John Butler was 16 years old in August 2017, the last time anyone would see him doing what he loved- running.
“When John died, we had people donating money,” said Keitha Butler, John’s mother. “We set that aside and decided in January to start a scholarship fund in his honor.” Each year the scholarship fund presented $500 scholarships to Permian Basin seniors.
With your continued support, we are able to help seniors with their college education. The foundation has already awarded 10 scholarships this year to qualified seniors and over 70 scholarships have been awarded since his passing in 2017.
The JTBMSF is adding little more fun for graduating seniors or current college students who enter the race. We will draw a random name and award a $250.00 book scholarship on race day!
