Beer run! No, not the one that occurs every time your refrigerator becomes empty. This beer run is an actual race, a 5K to be exact. The reward at the end of the finish line--you guessed it, beer. Lots of it.
Downtown Anaheim's Beer Run 5K, happening on Sept. 22, takes runners down a flat, easy path that starts and ends at the Center Street Promenade. It coincides with the OC Fest of Ales, an inaugural event featuring 100 beers, food pairings, live music and a food truck challenge.
Those who purchase the 5K/beer fest combo ticket ($45 before Sept. 1) get to experience the best of both worlds--good exercise and the joy of re-drinking the calories. For those who'd rather sleep in, single beer fest tickets are available as well.
