Greensboro Growler Gallop

About

Race Update (9/11/2020): We are happy to announce that this race will be happening in person in 2020! We will have a 5k only this year so that we have enough time to spread everyone out in smaller groups and keep the event to a manageable size given the current state and local restrictions.

On a much lower note, we are sad to announce that our partners in this event, Gibb’s Hundred Brewing, will be closing their business permanently on September 13th. They will be greatly missed in our community! We are currently working on another plan for beer and participants will receive one beer after the race with their race registration.

When you register for the race, you will be asked to select a starting corral. There will be separate gathering areas for each corral and congregating between groups will not be allowed, so make sure you sign up in the same corral with your friends if you want to race together!

The Growler Gallop is the 6th race in the Trivium  Triad Mega Medal Series.  Each medal in the series will magnetically connect to make one giant medal!  Check it out below!!
