05 May Indiana BLueMIle Brew Mile Summer Series
They combine their love for running and their enjoyment of craft beer for a social event that’s a run/walk with prizes, giveaways and awards–and the awards aren’t for the fastest! Yes, it’s only one mile, and yes, you can do it!
This is a social event combined with running and walking, and it’s just one mile! Families, pets and strollers are welcome. This is a very, very casual event, so please don’t expect chip timing, instant results, a certified course or aid stations along the way! It’s all about getting moving, having fun, and celebrating the social aspects of health and fitness!
Your $5 entry gets you into the run/walk and one beer (or other beverage if you’re under age or prefer something different). All proceeds go to fund running shoes for participants in Back On My Feet, a local charity that promotes self-sufficiency of the homeless by engaging them in running as a means to build confidence and self-esteem. (BlueMile is the official run/walk partner of Back On My Feet and provides shoes to participants. Your donation helps fund their shoes).
Thanks to their partners, they’ll have some great giveaways. If you’re a little out of shape or lacking motivation, we can’t think of any better way to jump-start your summer fitness plan. We’ll also have test shoes on hand, so if yours are getting a little old or you want to try the latest and greatest, their vendor partners will be happy to help!

The BlueMile Brew Mile summer series is all about fun and fitness. So, if you’re a committed runner or walker, this is a great way to get your not-so-committed friends out the door and on their way to an active lifestyle. Their goal is to promote running and walking as a fun way to stay healthy and fit. And, if it takes a beer to get your friends to join you, we’re here to help!
