Hops for Hope 5K is a twist on the traditional 5K! The event is timed and the course is certified, whether you are a runner or walker this event is for you. You can take a casual stroll with your friends and sip on beer samples throughout the course, or you can run to get your best time and skip the beer stops (discounted price) or chug your beer and go.
The 5K will start at the beautiful Mount Saint Mary Park in St. Charles and head towards Geneva on the scenic path through Wheeler Park and ends back at Mount Saint Mary Park for the Award Ceremony! Throughout the 5K there will be 6 Refueling Stations (Beer Stops) featuring local craft breweries handing out 3-ounce beer samples to runners.
The Award Ceremony will feature a live band, more beer, local restaurants, vendors, awards (of course!) and our Adaptive Bike Giveaway.
