To Do: Yuengling Light Lager Jogger 5K

Because sometimes, the best motivation to get through a race is an ice-cold beer at the finish line.

Do you enjoy running/walking for the sake of beer and fun? (I do, too.) Do you still need to check off ’3.1 mile run in the Pottsville area’ on your bucket list? (I’m right there with you.) Then, my friend, Yuengling Light Lager Jogger 5K is the perfect event for the both of us.

On April 13th, Yuengling Light Lager will be host a 5K that begins and ends at America’s oldest brewery in Pottsville, Pennsylvania. After support from the wild crowd has moved you over the finish line, there will be a post-race block party that features free brewery tours, special sales and an official awards ceremony. And—because you can never use the word “after” too many times—there will be an after-after party at Maroons Sports Bar & Grill, starting at 10 a.m. Plus, every participant will receive Yeungling goodies just for getting involved.

Make sure to enroll your name as soon as you can—there are only 2,500 spots total. Learn more and register here.

$40 before March 1st, $45 after; race day is April 13th at 8 a.m., D.G. Yeungling and Son, Inc., 501 Mahantongo Street, Pottsville.

    I wanted to make a correction: the after-party begins at 10am, not 10pm. We don’t want people to be late for the after-party!
