May 15, 2015 A keg party with a 5k warm up! We can’t think of any other place you would rather be the first Friday in May.
It’s true! It’s not a typo! This is a Friday evening race! Beer, fast course, great crowd, finisher medals, and lots of good times! Did we mention beer? Atwater Brewery is the start and finish for this fabulous course! Make your way along the revitalized Detroit Riverfront and back to the beer! The after party will be rockin', the band will be playin' and good times will be had by all. Check out all the great "collectors" items you will be walking OR running away with! Cheers! Hightail to Ale is the first stop for the not so serious, Thirsty 3 Event Series. The Thirsty 3 is a running tour to 3 of Michigan's finest locally made beer, wine and hard cider properties. Make sure to come and visit us at Running Between the Vines 5k/Half Marathon August 16 in Jackson and Scrumpy Skedaddle 5K/10K October 5 in Flushing. Series prize for those of you who join us for all 3!

Great race on Friday night!! Do you know what the actual race participant count was?
Wow....what an awesome night!!! We hope you had a great time on and off the course!!! From the lead cheetah coalition to the last Dirty Blond handed out it was a spectacular event. What a FUN crowd you were!!! Thanks to Atwater for hosting us, the Detroit Riverfront for the beautiful setting, the Detroit police for a closed course and the 150+ Brew Crew volunteers making sure you had a good time!! Thanks to End Grain Woodworking for the awesome awards. We can't wait to see you again!! Join us on stop 2 of The Thirsty 3 on August 13 at Running Between the Vines! Cheers to you all!!!
Great race, nice course along the water front. Volunteers were awesome very motivating and nice. The shirts and medals are very cool. Didn't get our free beer. Stood in line for 10 minutes and found out it wasn't for the free beer only for buying beer oops our mistake. but had a good hot run and enjoyed the experience. Thank you running fit for a good race.

To the people who LEFT thier dog inside the car for 45 min while they walked around and picked up thier packets then let him out shortly then locked him back IN THE HOT car with the windows barely open, for over 2 HOURS!! Maybe more idk we left and he was still in there alone. SCREW you!! That's wrong and inhuman. It was 74 degrees today n no shade, no breeze. Why did you bring him to the race to leave him in a hot car?? Your idiots. And yes we gave your plate # to the Detroit police. Shame on you.
