Run In Texas is taking precautions at every event to protect the health and safety of our runners, volunteers, venue partners and staff. Read about our safety policies here.
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, 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. 6-Pack runners may choose to run any event virtually and we will ship their race packet to them at no extra charge (unfortunately we cannot ship pint glasses or beer with the virtual option).
“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 offers 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.
2021 Wild Card Event:
Galveston Island Brewing Co. 5K Beer Run, Oct. 9, Galveston
Not sure you can commit to running at least 6 races right now? Register for each race individually, then if you’re on track to complete at least 6 events in the series, sign up for 6-Pack Beer Challenge Fall Registration (available in September). This $25 fee covers your finisher medal, results tracking and T-shirt based on availability.
- This fee does not include entry into any of the beer races, only your 6-Pack Challenge registration.
- NOTE: You MUST be registered for the 6-Pack to receive your finisher medal, even if you ran 6 beer runs.
A Special Message for 2020 6-Packers
Thank you for making it through the craziness of 2020 with us! Because 2 races in the 2020 6-Pack were cancelled without rescheduling due to COVID-19, we are issuing you a credit that you can apply toward the 2021 6-Pack OR to 2 individual beer runs. Check your email for details or email 6pack@RunInTexas.com with any questions!
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 a discounted rate for all 8 events.
- You must register for the 6-Pack by May 2 to guarantee your official 2021 Texas 5k 6-Pack tech 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.
