BeerFit Chicago: Hit the Brew Mile

If you’ve ever dreamt of getting a good workout while drinking beer, your dream has just come true.
As BeerFit explains, they believe, “a good workout is made great with an ice cold beer.” This way, you can toast at every mile whether you’re running the 5k or Brew Mile.

So, if the idea of free beer alone wasn’t enough reason to run with BeerFit, here are a few more reasons:


The After Party

On top of the beer you’ll get to enjoy before, during, and after the race, you’ll get to celebrate your accomplishment with an after party ..which of course has more beer. You’ll also have the chance to get awards and prizes, play games, and jam out to music.

We’re almost wondering if BeerFit is a beer festival in disguise …


Beer Mile

This untimed run will reward you with two beers throughout the race, and of course, an epic free beer after-party at the end.

The 5k Classic

This is a timed race that encourages runners to work for their reward (of beer, of course). Runners will get free beer at the end of the race and celebrate at the after-party.



BeerFit is charity partners with, which is an organization that provides access to safe water and sanitation to communities within Africa, South Asia, and Central America.
