Race for the beer!

Beer RunFree Beer 5K Races!
This is a list of races where at the end of the race runners were provided with free beer. If you are looking for a local Memphis run to sign up for, you should consider these events first and support their respective causes. I strike though the cancelled beer races to acknowledge them and for hope they are brought back next year.Running Beer
