We’re excited to announce the 2nd annual Brews & Views 5K, taking place along the beautiful waterfront of South Portland and Casco Bay on July 11, 2020!

Join us for a fun filled 5K, passing through Bug Light Park and ending at the American Legion #35 where runners will be greeted with one 16oz special release Pink Lemonade Shandy by Shipyard Brewing!

As you may know, Governor Mills’ plan to reopen Maine has recently entered stage 2, allowing more businesses to open, but the ban on mass gatherings is expected to remain in place until stage 4. It’s clear that races, festivals, and other large events won’t be allowed for the foreseeable future. So what now?

We can’t simply cancel the event and refund or defer our participants to 2021 because we’ve already spent most of the money on everything we needed to produce it, from race swag to permits and planning. What little that remains is being used to keep the lights on for as long as we can during this difficult time.

However, with your support and understanding, we hope to survive the pandemic and return better than ever next year. Although we won’t be able to have an in-person event this year, we still want you to get out and run, and we want you to get all of the cool race swag we ordered for you, so we’re putting our remaining resources and efforts into converting the 2020 Brews & Views 5K to a virtual run.

IMPORTANT:  We’ll ship all of your swag items – tech tee, race bib, and a special offer from Shipyard Brewing (more below) – to the address on file in your EnMotive account starting mid-July. Please log in here* by June 30th to ensure your mailing address is correct. Please also make sure you’ve selected the right size by checking out the sizing guide then update your selection in your EnMotive account if necessary. If your package is returned to us because of an incorrect address or wrong size, we won’t be able to reship it.

Once your swag size is confirmed and address is updated, simply pick the ideal day to complete the virtual run, then submit your time to receive an official finisher’s certificate! To do so, log in to your EnMotive account, find Brews & Views 5K in the “Upcoming Races” section, click the “Actions” button, click “Log Result,” enter your time, and download your certificate. There’s no deadline to complete the run. You’ll receive your swag pack this summer regardless of when you complete it.

If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to [email protected]. We anticipate a high email volume, so response times may be delayed but we’ll reply as soon as possible.

On behalf of the GiddyUp team, we thank you for your understanding during these unprecedented times. When things are back to normal next year, we’ll be sure to send you a personal discount for the 2021 event as thanks for supporting us.

We know you were looking forward to a cold one at the finish line, so your goodie bag also includes a voucher for two 10oz beers, courtesy of our friends at Shipyard Brewing*! Make sure you head over to their tasting room at 86 Newbury St. in Portland before December 31, 2020 with your physical voucher and grab your beers. You’ve earned them!
