About the Real Ale Brewing Co 5K

This beer run starts and finishes at the beautiful Real Ale Brewing Co., brewing in the Texas Hill Country since 1996 producing handcrafted beer that is unfiltered, unpasteurized, and available only in Texas. Once you’re done running, you can hit the tasting room to collect your souvenir finisher pint glass and enjoy up to four 8oz tastings.

Your entry includes a custom finisher glass, four 8oz tastings of Real Ale’s finest, an official race tech shirt, and a well-marked and supported course. Cool awards just for beer lovers go to those who run fast enough (or are lucky enough to win one of our random drawings after the award ceremony!). Also:

  • Food trucks available for anyone wishing to purchase tasty food after the run!
  • Stroller friendly course!
  • Dog friendly! (must obey leash laws and pick up after fifi or fido)
  • Music!
  • Free race photos available online after the race.


$35 entry through 11-9, $45 through 11-25, $55 after that and $60 on race day.
