Nutty Runner 5k

If you enjoy craft beer and exercising outdoors for a good cause, the Nutty Runner 5K is for you! At every mile, runners can enjoy a pint of Nutty Runner nut-brown ale courtesy of Columbus House Brewery – one of Fayetteville’s favorite local hangs.

Out of all the runs in Fayetteville, this one may be the “most” Fayetteville! The route will wind through our fair city’s historic downtown and into some of our most scenic neighborhoods. So, a word of warning – there will be hills. But just follow the Nutty Runner race mantra and put “mind over hangover” and you’ll be just fine.

For the more cautious souls who don’t feel the need to drink and run, there’s the Designated Driver division. But however you choose to participate, there will be additional beer, shirts and merch available for purchase during the post-race festivities. It’s a guaranteed good time for all.
