Frequently Asked Questions (and answers!)
1. How does membership work and how much does it cost?
The Austin Beer Run Club is free! We technically don't have membership; you can show up for any Wednesday night run without having to sign up for anything. (From time to time we do have some paid special events that are not on Wednesdays.) That said we strongly encourage everyone to sign up with our Meetup.com page. This is the best place to learn about all our of events, cancellations, etc.
2. How long is the run and what is the route?
The run is approximately 5k. We have two routes, one for when Daylight Savings Time is in effect (roughly spring + summer + autumn) and one for when standard time is in effect (roughly winter). Please see our About page for a description of the current route.
3. Is this club only for serious runners?
We welcome all levels! Our club is about having fun, socializing, and -- of course -- drinking beer. We have a full spectrum of runners every week: some elite runners, some folks training for events, causal runners, people getting back from injuries, people new to running, folks out to run their dog, etc.
4. Is there parking available?
Parking is available free-of-charge in the gravel lot on the south side of 4th street, directly across from the south entrance to Better Half patio.
5. Are dogs welcome?
Dogs are welcome! That said please be respectful of other runners and especially of other patrons. Dogs are not allowed inside the restaurant at any time.
