Craft Classic:  Good Beer Comes to Those Who Run!

Course Map The idea for the Craft Classic 5k was born over a tasty post-run brew a coupe of years ago and now the race is back for year two after winning hearts and taste buds of participants last summer.  This finely-crafted event caters to runners and beer enthusiasts alike thanks to the running gurus at Road Runner Sports and the beer experts at Green Flash Brewing. Pre-Race Packet Pick Up will be held at Road Runner Sports San Diego on Friday July 14 and Saturday July 15 and will be mandatory for all runners.  If you can’t make it, someone will be able to pick up for you.  Fully detailed race instructions will be sent via email to all participants the week of the event.
