The Race

Whatever your personal classification is, we are proud to announce the running of the first Micro Brew Mile in Quad City's history – a race that will feature the distinct camaraderie of the Quad City’s running community and the area’s renowned festivities.

On June 16, 2018, whether you consider yourself an elite runner or someone who runs as a leisure activity, the Micro Brew Mile will offer you an experience like no other race. After completing the one mile road race in any one of the various waves offered, you can celebrate your accomplishment by partaking in some of the best local (and perhaps a few non-local) hand crafted brews and great food while enjoying live musical entertainment.
