2024 Texas 5K 6-Pack Beer Challenge

Make 2024 your year to explore the best of Texas running and craft beer! Join us as we run at some of the best breweries in Texas. You’ll experience independent breweries around San Antonio, Austin, the Hill Country, Houston and beyond.

Each brewery is a destination in itself, with its own one-of-a-kind vibe and distinct beer styles, set against the backdrop of a uniquely different part of Texas. Each course takes you through scenic countryside, neighborhoods, rural roads, small towns or a little of each. Walkers always welcome!

Once you complete your 5k, you’ll collect your souvenir pint glass and enjoy your choice of four 8-oz. pours (that’s 2 pints!), included with your entry! Savor your beer and your accomplishment as you enjoy the beer garden with fellow beer-loving runners.

NEW IN 2024: We’ve added MORE beer runs, MORE breweries and MORE flexibility! Choose the events that work for you!

FAQs & Details:

What if I sign up for an event now and something comes up and I can’t attend?

We understand that sometimes plans change and things come up. You have a few options if you can’t make it to a race you’ve signed up for:

  • Transfer your registration to another beer run. Only 2 changes max per year. All changes must be made at least 3 weeks prior to the event – we cannot transfer entries after that.
  • Run virtually! If you sign up for an event but can’t make it, you always have the option of running virtually. Just email us at 6pack@RunInTexas.com BEFORE race day to let us know you’ll run virtually (this allows us to save your packet for you). Then email us your time after you’ve completed your run and we’ll enter it in your results to count toward your 6-Pack goal.

You can pick up your packet at the next event, have a friend collect your packet for you at the event or pay a $10 shipping/handling fee to have it mailed to you (unfortunately we cannot ship pint glasses or beer).

What if I want to add an additional event later?

Once you register for the 6-Pack, you can use your exclusive 6-Pack 10% discount to register for any additional beer runs you’d like. You can also apply your discount to any other Run In Texas event in 2024.

How do I get my Official 2024 Texas 5k 6-Pack Beer Challenge Shirt?

You must register for the 6-Pack by May 4 to guarantee your official 2024 Texas 5k 6-Pack shirt. Shirts will be available at the No Label Brewing Co. 5k on June 15 and at all following 6-Pack races. Shirts may be available for those registering for the 6-Pack after May 4, but availability and sizes are not guaranteed.

When do I get my finisher medal?

All registered 5k 6-Pack Challengers who complete at least 6 events in the series will receive their custom finisher medal following the final event in the series, the Real Ale 5k Beer Run on December 7, 2024. If you can’t make it to this event, you can have another runner pick up your medal and packet or pay $10 for shipping & handling to have it mailed to you.

The Fine Print

  • Sorry, no refunds and no bib transfers for Challenge participants.
  • While we proudly offer military discounts on individual registration for all Run In Texas events, we cannot offer military discounts for the Challenge.
  • You must register for the 6-Pack by May 4 to guarantee your official 2024 Texas 5k 6-Pack performance fabric shirt. Shirts may be available after that, but availability and sizes cannot be guaranteed.
  • You MUST be registered in the Challenge to be eligible to receive the 6-Pack finisher medal.
  • At each race, we work with local authorities and our venue partners to coordinate a safe, fun event. If it is determined that we cannot hold a race safely due to weather or other factors, the race may be rescheduled or cancelled. If cancelled, you will receive a credit that can be applied to a future event to ensure you get the full value of your 6-Pack registration.
