Hops for Hope 5K & Brewfest

Sat, Oct 05 , 2024

Prairie Street, St. Charles, IL 60174

Hops for Hope 5K is a fun 5k for everyone! Racers can enjoy the certified 5k timed course and a trail with craft brew refueling stations.

Hops for Hope is a beer 5K and St. Charles Brewfest.

The 5K portion is a twist on the traditional 5K! Awarded Top 100 Races in America by BibRave, our 5K is timed and the course is certified, whether you are a serious runner or walker who loves beer, this event is for you. The 5K will start at the beautiful Mt. St. Mary Park in downtown St. Charles and head towards Geneva on the scenic path through Wheeler Park and ends back at Mt. St. Mary Park for the BrewFest!

Proceeds benefit Project Mobility's mission to bring adaptive cycling opportunities to the lives of children, adults, and wounded service members with disabilities, autism and cancer. We think you mean delicious and fun! Throughout the 5K there will be 6 Beer Stops featuring local craft breweries handing out 3-ounce beer samples to runners.

Post 5K will be the BrewFest! You will get 18 samples of beer while listening to a live band with local restaurants, raffles and our Adaptive Bike Giveaway Presentation.
