Mikkeller Running Club Rockford – 38th Run
May 5 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Welcome Rockford beer runners! Our 38th #MRC run will be on Saturday May 5 at 12 noon. As always, we will assemble at The Olympic Tavern and there will be THREE routes to choose from. Afterwards, we will convene back at The Olympic — all runners get half off any appetizer on our menu! This is a very low key, non-competitive fun/beer run, so please, bring a friend.
The idea of Mikkeller Running Club is to stay fit through running. That makes us capable of enjoying even more of the good life – which includes state of the art food and drinks.
Obviously our main passion is beer – especially drinking beers – and sometimes (preferably) in large scales.
The club is founded by Mikkel Borg Bjergsø, who is also the creator and owner of Mikkeller.
It is not a coincidence that Mikkel chooses to focus on running. He used to be quite the talent, and as a youngster he performed very well on the tracks, which earned him scholarships in the US, and some Danish records.
However, speed is not the main target in Mikkeller Running Club. Having fun and great social relations is our top priority and we´re just proud to see MRC members take part in races and events around the world.
Every first Saturday of the month we meet up for a run and a beer.
You do not have to be an experienced runner or athlete to join #MRC…all we ask is for you to come join us and have fun staying healthy – and sometimes a bit tipsy!!!
We hope to see you wear the shirt around the world….
