Red Hare has updated the name of this event to "Hoppin' Into Spring 5K" to go along with their new brew!
Red Hare's 5K will take you through the streets of Marietta ending with a Red Hare beer garden celebration featuring live music, food and complimentary beer tasting (for those 21 & over, non-alcoholic Red Hare Root Beer soda will be available for anyone unable to drink beer). All runners will receive a custom Red Hare 5K glass and the first hundred or so runners back to the brewery will get a chance to taste our specialty Race Casks, get ‘em while they last! Overall awards will be given to M/F winners and the top 3 in all the usual 5 year age groups 10 & under to 75+. We hope you’ll come run with us!
Red Hare Brewing Company, the oldest microbrewery in Marietta, GA, distributes their beer and soda brands throughout Georgia, South Carolina, Alabama, Tennessee and the panhandle of Florida. Red Hare brews four year-round beers: Gangway IPA, Long Day Lager, Cotton Tail Pale Ale, SPF 50/50 and as of January 2017, Gem City Classic in addition to over 12 seasonal or small batch releases per year. Red Hare was the first craft brewery in Georgia to can their beer and the world’s first brewery to use a more eco-friendly can, the evercan, made with guaranteed 90% recycled aluminum. The brewery tasting room is open to the public for tours and tastings Wednesdays through Fridays from 5:30-7:30 and Saturdays from 2-6 pm.

Austen's Army Foundation
We are a nonprofit organization located outside of Atlanta dedicated to spreading awareness of rhabdomyosarcoma, and raising funds to support research earmarked specifically toward treatments for this disease that minimize toxicity to patients and maximize success rates. In the most basic of terms, rhabdomyosarcoma is a type of sarcoma. Sarcomas are cancers that develop from connective tissues in the body, such as muscles, fat, bones, the linings of joints, or blood vessels. Rhabdomyosarcoma is the most common type of soft tissue sarcoma in children.
Austen was diagnosed with embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma in 2017 at the age of 4. This is a disease we didn't even know existed. Within a few weeks, she had spent numerous days and nights at the hospital, undergone a full hysterectomy and began an intense 24-week protocol of chemotherapy.
Your contributions will enable us to help raise awareness of rhabdomyosarcoma and fund valuable research efforts into treatment protocols.
