Join Manchester Running Company, ten breweries and five restaurants and MMNT CPA’s for the fourth annual MMNT Beards & Beers 5k on November 11th in Manchester. The event drew over 450 runners in 2016 and serves as a great tuneup before the Manchester Road Race on Thanksgiving.
The flat and fast 5k takes place on a certified course in Manchester and South Windsor, is supported by Manchester and South Windsor police and features one of the best post-race parties in the state with a live band, great food and beer. In 2017 we are pleased to appease our gluten free crowd with two cideries including Stafford Cidery and New England Cider Company!
Beer vendors include
The cost is a very affordable $25 through October 15th, when the cost does increase to $30. If you aren’t up for the run and just want to join in the after-party, we do require a $10 minimum donation. So that you aren’t partying too early in the morning, we offer a friendly 11 a.m. start time.
All proceeds of the event support the MMNT Foundation which provides numerous funds and resources to local non-profits. The primary beneficiary of funds from the Beards & Beers 5k is the Curtis D. Robinson Center for Health Equity at Saint Francis Hospital in Hartford.
