Help support local cancer services by joining 7B Women at their third annual Boobs and Beer 5k Fun Run and Beer Fest. This event has grown in popularity over the last two years, featuring a 5K run on the Sand Creek Trail followed by an Oktoberfest reception at MickDuff’s Beer Hall. The event is a fundraiser for Celebrate Life and Community Cancer Services, two local non profit organizations tasked with assisting cancer patients and their loved ones in the community.
Last year’s Boobs and Beer event raised $17,500 for Community Cancer Services and Celebrate Lift. This year, by partnering with MickDuff’s Beer Hall, 7B Women hopes to bring racers an even better and bigger event, if that’s even possible.
The fun kicks off with the 5K Fun Run on the Sand Creek Trail at 11 a.m. on Sunday, Sept. 30, rain or shine. Costumes are highly encouraged. Participants can celebrate breast cancer awareness month by sporting head-to-toe pink or embrace the Oktoberfest theme and bust the lederhosen out of the back of the closet.
After the race, everyone will head over to MickDuff’s Beer Hall for an Oktoberfest celebration. For those over 21, race registration includes a free beer. A portion of beer sales will also go right back into the cause. There will be three food trucks on site and live music by 20 Grand Funk. For those with kids, there will be a Kid’s Zone featuring face painting and bounce houses.
To register, check out 7BWomen.com. Registrations received prior to Friday, Sept. 28, at 5 p.m. will cost $40 for adults and $10 for those 12 and under. Registrations received after this time will be $50 for adults and $15 for kids 12 and under. Online registration closes Saturday, Sept. 29, at 6 p.m.
Packets are available to pick up Saturday, Sept. 29, from 3-6 p.m. at MickDuff’s Beer Hall, or on race day, Sunday, Sept. 30, from 9-10:30 a.m. at Sandpoint City Beach. Participants can also register in person at both locations. Once paid, race registrations are non-refundable, however it is possible to transfer registration to another racer if something prohibits racers from attending.
As they say over at 7B Women: “Support the boobs, drink the beer.”
The Boobs and Beer 5K Fun Run and Oktoberfest will take place Sunday, Sept. 30. The 5K kicks off at 11 a.m. on the Sand Creek Trail and the Oktoberfest celebration will start after the race at MickDuff’s Beer Hall. Check 7BWomen.com for more information.
