Memorial Day Pub Run - Sunday, May 26th, 2019

The 10th Annual Memorial Day Pub Run, aka "The Most Beautiful Urban Pub Run in America," is just around the corner! Everyone said, "I bet this won't make it past 9 years." Others didn't want it to survive. But here we are at 10 years of pub running. And now we're just 90 years away from our 100th!

So, lace em up and knock em back and come check out what Runner's World called the "Best. Event. Ever. Period." (Note: we might have cut out several words ransom-note style to make it say that.)

Event information
Course Map

I've been around the pub run block...what's new!?

Location Paul and Laura house! The Pub Run race director has convinced (tricked) his wife to letting us host again. We'll turn 3334 Holmes avenue into Pub Run Central once again. Please don't make us regret this decision. Kirby would never forgive you.

Possible New Course! But probably not. I just haven't finalized it yet. But you can count on some of your favorites being there, all the bars you hate, and possibly the same course as last year. NO ONE KNOWS!

Other Stuff! That's right! More stuff will likely change. We'll have more details later. What, you thought this was some sort of professional organization where we have everything figured out months in advance. You're lucky the Pub Run committee can figure out how to get out of bed each morning, cut us some slack!

VIP Status! Buy yourself the most luxurious pub run this side of the Mississippi! Limited space available, but my oh my are the VIPs gonna be living large. Event t-shirt, steak dinner, champage at the finish, valet parking and more! VIPs got it made! All the details here.

Field Limit

Yeah, we cap it at 50. Any more of you and the bars get upset. And the chances of a mutiny skyrocket. If there is one thing the Memorial Day Pub Run is proud of it's our record of ZERO mutinies. So far.

Also, we're going with a cap of 50 in hopes we can get representation from all 50 states. I call dibs on registering from Minnesota!

Can I bring a friend?

Yes! As long as your friend is a human being over the age of 21, rates at least a 4 out of 10 on the "nicesness scale", and has reasonable dental records, and says "OPE" like a good Minnesotan, they're welcome to join! When they go to register, just make sure they list you, the lawful CBRC runner in their registration so we know who to blame when they show up with bad dental records and missing teeth.
