.05K Benefiting Heroes for Hope

May 11 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm CDT

Join Shannon Brewing Company and Heroes for Hope for DFW’s first ever “0.5K”/Food Fest. No this is not Heroes for Hope’s annual 5K. That will be held on Saturday, September 14th. This is the “race” for everyone else!! Not a runner? Perfect! Pretty Lazy? Perfect! Like cold craft beer, great food, and an awesome party?? Perfect!!

The Shannon Brewing Co. “0.5K”/Food Fest will be held on Saturday, May 11th (National Eat Anything You Want Day) at 12PM at Shannnon Brewing Co. in Keller, TX. You won’t want to miss this awesome event. There have only been a handful of these events held across the country! It will sell out!! How far is a “0.5K”?!? It’s only 1/3 of a mile or 1600 feet. Here are the rules: ABSOLUTELY no running! You may walk. You may skip. You may lollygag, but ABSOLUTELY no running. We will have a costume contest with the theme – BIGGEST SLACKER! Sign up as an individual or form a team and bring your laziest friends (save $5 per person)!!

The day will kick off at 12PM. We will have “race” day packet pickup and cold beer available to make sure your are plenty “hydrated”! Then at 1PM, RACE TIME! Cox Racing will provide a huge inflatable START/FINISH LINE. Each participant will have a bib with the number 1 on it, because we are all #1. This will not be a timed event because if we timed it, we would have winners meaning we would also have losers. We don’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings! We will all be WINNERS! The race will begin with the Chariots of Fire theme song and as particpants begin to finish they will finish to Bon Jovi’s Blaze of Glory. Along the course, we will have a “medical” tent complete with army cots and “nurses” providing adult “shots” to make sure everyone is able to finish. As you cross the finish line, SUPERHEROES will award you with your awesome FINISHER”S MEDAL!!

All participants will receive an awesome t-shirt, unique finisher’s medal, custom euro style sticker for your car to show how much of a badass you are, a free beer and a Shannon pint glass, an adult “shot” at our “medical” tent. VIP participants will also receive an additional beer, ”taste of” portions from the Food Fest, a member of the “medical” team in the VIP tent with your “adult “shots”, VIP raffle tickets, and more!!

Then the party continues!! We will have a live band playing the best hits of the 90’s, cold beer on tap, and the FOOD FEST!! Try local bites from our area hot spots. Food tickets will be 8 for $5. Each food vendor will have “taste of” portions and larger portions. Remember it’s “National Eat what You Want Day”. Bring some extra cash for some incredible items we will have in our silent auction.

Early Packet Pickup will be held Friday, May 10th from 4PM-7PM at Shannon Brewing Co.

All proceeds will benefit Heroes for Hope.
