Run Club

Run Club Barley Labs Durham NC

Join us every Friday at 6:15 p.m. for the
Barley Labs Run Club! 

All paces are welcome, and we have distances ranging from 1.5 to 5.7 miles. After your run, enjoy a brew from one of our 16 taps (we also have wine and non-alcoholic options like kombucha if that's your thing!).

If you're interested in joining us, please read our rules, sign the waiver, and bring a printed copy with you (we'll also have copies at the bar). You can also join our Strava group.

The Great Human Race 5K

We've put together a team to run the Great Human Race 5K on 3/23/19 supporting APS of Durham. If you attend all 10 weekly runs (starting 1/18/19) before the big race, you'll get a free Team Barley Labs tee. (Side Note: You don't need to attend our weekly runs to be part of our 5k team, but they are a lot of fun.) We also have fundraising incentives for team members and a post-race party. 

Team Barley Labs Perks

  • Fundraising incentives from local businesses
  • Pre-race packet pick-up party on 3/21 from 4-8 p.m.
  • Exclusive post-race party at 12:30 on race day
  • 20% discount on Team Barley Labs "I Run Because Beer" tee
