WILL YOU RUN FOR BEER? 
How about cider, wine or spirits?  If so, check out the most unique event in the Northwest.  The Bridge to Brews 10K and 8K has been around for years, but for the third straight year we offer a beer tasting festival after the event, with each participant receiving a commemorative cup and 10 free tasting tickets!  There are tons of great local breweries, distilleries and wineries to choose from.  Adding to the uniqueness, this is the only running event that goes over the beautiful Fremont Bridge!  There is food and live music at the finish, great support and music on the course and much more!

The busy start was well organized and the course was lovely! Unfortunately the 8k course was not as clearly marked after the split with the 10k group. Great atmosphere for a fun race experience, especially with the live music along the course. Would love to see some improvements with course markings to make it a faster race in the future.

This race is really enjoyable. It starts with a bit of a climb going up in the Fremont Bridge. on the other side of the river there are a few hills. I found a pretty challenging but the after party is really fun. There were plenty of Porta potty’s and lots of vendors of food, beer, etc. i’ve learned from experience to head straight to the beer lines, rather than wait around at the finish line or getting water, because the beer lines get so long once everyone starts finishing! Regardless, it is really fun and I will continue to do that race!! It is also one of the rare opportunities to run 8k.
