Hair of the Dog 2 Mile

Brewery 85 Race Series

The Upstate Race Series and Brewery 85 present the annual Hair of the Dog 2 Mile Run! This race will start and finish at Brewery 85 and run an EXTREMELY fast 1 Mile section before looping around confluence center and heading back up to the finish for an ice cold beverage to ring in the new year and cure any resolution hangovers that many of us have!
What is the Hair of the Dog? "Hair of the dog", short for "hair of the dog that bit you", is a colloquial expression in the English language predominantly used to refer to alcohol that is consumed with the aim of lessening the effects of a hangover. Well here at our Hair of the Dog 2 mile race we are going to challenge those of you with a furry friend to a friendly and furry race. Maybe you drank too much last night or maybe your dog is hung over from all the leftover New Year tasty treats! Well come and shake it out and bring in the new year with all of our furry friends.
