To our registered Texas 5k 6-Pack Beer Challengers: This is not the year that any of us expected, but we are doing our best to roll with the changes and make the 6-Pack happen. We are doing our best to adjust to rapidly changing circumstances with a goal of delivering the best experience we can under trying conditions. We thank you for your patience, your flexibility and your support. Here are details about plans for the rest of the year.

The REVISED 2020 Texas 6-Pack Beer Challenge Lineup  (as of July 10, 2020)


If you unable to make it to an in-person event or you aren’t comfortable participating, you have the option of running any remaining race in the 6-Pack virtually.

Here’s how it works:

  • Let us know in advance that you’ll be running the 6-pack event virtually by emailing us at 6pack@RunInTexas.com. NOTE: The deadline for choosing the virtual option is the day before the actual race.
  • Run a 5k on your own. You choose the time and place, completing your run by the actual race date (for example, if you run the Galveston Island Brewing 5k virtually, be sure to complete it by the actual race date of Oct. 3).
  • Send your results to us at 6pack@RunInTexas.com.
  • We’ll mail you your race T-shirt, bib and as a special bonus souvenir, a finisher medal bottle opener. Free shipping!
  • Finish at least 6 races in the series and you’ll receive your 2020 6-Pack Finisher medal after the Real Ale 5k Beer Run on Dec. 5.

We know that you’re in it for the fun of visiting breweries and trying great craft beer. That’s why we are diligently trying to make all of our races happen this year as planned. We realize that the virtual option is not the same thing as being there in person, but it’s the best option possible under the circumstances. And because it’s not quite the same, we are offering the bottle opener finisher medal as a special extra to those choosing the virtual option. Unfortunately we can’t offer the souvenir pint glass or the beer with the virtual option.


Because this has been such an unusual year with a lot of rescheduling, we are also offering runners the option of completing one 5k on their own to count toward their 6-Pack finishers medal. This could be:

Just let us know you did it (email us at 6pack@runintexas.com) and complete it by Dec. 1. If you end up completing at least 6 races in the 6-Pack (either in person, virtually and/or one on your own as needed for a total of 6), you’ll earn your finisher medal, available after the Real Ale 5k Beer Run on Dec. 5.

Other things you may be wondering about: 

  • Are you taking any precautions for runner safety?

We have added new measures to increase safety for our runners and volunteers at upcoming events, including minimizing contact points. We’re also relying on participants at events to do their part to help keep events safe. Read more here.

  • When will we receive our 2020 6-Pack T-shirts?

These will be available at the No Label 1st Street 5k on Sept. 12 and at every subsequent race after that.

  • Will there be Wild Card events?

We originally planned to offer Wild Card races as we have in years past. These are additional brewery runs that are not part of the 6-Pack, but would count toward completing the 6-Pack and earning the finisher medal. However, with all the rescheduling we have had to do this year, we are running out of new dates in the remaining months of 2020. For this reason, Wild Card events are not likely to happen this year. Instead, the virtual option will count toward completing your 6-Pack.

  • What happens if a race is cancelled and not rescheduled?

If we are unable to safely proceed with a race and there is no opportunity to reschedule, we will come back to you with another plan to ensure you get the full value of your 6-Pack registration.
