The Official Texas 5k 6-Pack Shirt
You must register for the 6-Pack by April 6 to guarantee your official 2019 Texas 5k 6-Pack shirt. Shirts will be available at the Galveston Island Brewing Co. 5k on May 4 and at all following 6-Pack races.
Finisher Medal Ceremony at the Real Ale 5k Beer Run, December 7, 2019
The 2019 Real Ale 5K Beer Run in Blanco on Dec. 7 is the final event in the series. All 5k 6-Pack Challengers who have completed at least six events will receive their finish medal after the race.
If you cannot be at the Real Ale 5K and you have completed six total 5ks in the series, you still complete the challenge. If you can’t be present for the awards ceremony, you may have someone pick up your medal for you or have your award mailed to you for a $10 shipping fee.
“Wild Card” events
People get busy and life happens. In the event you cannot make 6 of the events in the series, Run In Texas will offer at least one (and probably more) additional Texas craft brewery “wild card” event. This will be another 5k at a different brewery. With paid registration and completion of a wild card event, you can get credit towards completing the 6-pack. You must register and pay for the “wild card” events separately, but they are there if you need them. These will be announced at a later date.
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 because prices already include discounted entries for all 8 events.
- You must register for the 6-Pack by April 6 to guarantee your official 2019 Texas 5k 6-Pack tech shirt. Shirts may be available after that, but availability and sizes cannot be guaranteed.
Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions. Please do not email or call the breweries regarding 5K information
