If you like root beer and Little Baby’s ice cream, and you like them even better paired together, you are going to go nuts for this year’s Generation Run 5K, Students Run Philly Style’s annual fundraising race: This year, runners will be greeted with free root beer floats, made with root beer from Yards Brewing Company and ice cream from Little Baby’s, at the finish line. Just the motivation you need to run your fastest, right?

The race, held at the Philadelphia Navy Yard, begins at 10 a.m. on Saturday, June 13th. Registration will run you $35, and with it comes a soft cotton shirt, a medal, and a post-race shindig with the root beer floats mentioned above, plus all sorts of good stuff like games, and “the occasional drifting beach ball,” to quote the race’s website. Fun, right?
