Activities: Running race, Virtual race, 0.5K

June 13th - Registration is Closed! We sold all 150 of our "On-Site Participant" slots and 10 of the "Virtual Participant" option. We want to extend a huge thank you to everyone! Swag orders are now placed with our suppliers and we'll see 150 of you on July 9th! Orders for our Virtual Participants will ship the week after the event and you will receive the tracking number in your email. 

A Run For Underachievers.
A Couch Potato Fun Run.
A Run For The Rest Of Us.

It goes by many names, and now you can take part in one, if you snag one of the 150 entry slots before they are gone! This 0.5K "Run" (Yes, really 0.5K = 1/3 Mile = 546 Yards = 1640 Feet) will only take you about 7 minutes to complete if you walk it, and then you get rewarded with a beer and a donut!

How great is that? Not to mention the best part - the proceeds go to help fight cancer! We are the "Pirates of the Cure-ibbean" team with the Relay For Life of Southeastern CT. The money we raise at this event will go to our 2022 Relay For Life event, which is part of the American Cancer Society.

Changes for 2022:
Increased the on-site slots from 100 to 150!
Pushed the schedule back 1 hour (see below)
New: Purchase addons during registration such as extra pint glasses, stickers, or a new Dog Bandana & Treat bundle!
New: Due to limited parking we only have room for 150 On-Site Participants, so we added a new Virtual option for anyone who misses out on the the on-site slots, or would like to participate from afar! You will receive your shirt and sticker by mail! (Sorry, we are not shipping pint glasses, beer, or donuts.)

10:00-11:00 AM - Arrival & Check In
11:00 AM - Run/Walk Starts!
11:15 AM - All Done, Time For Beer & Donuts!
12:00 PM - Hop Culture Opens to the public

But wait, there's more! What's a fun run without SWAG?
Besides the beer and donuts, you will also receive:
- Limited edition official "2022 Pirate's Beer Run" t-shirt. Wear it proudly to show how hard you worked at this event, displaying not only our logo on the front, but all of our sponsors on the back!
- Limited edition official "2022 Pirate's Beer Run" pint glass! Every time you drink a beer or anything else from this glass, you will remember the fun times you had with us. Emblazoned with our logo of course.
- Not so limited-edition official "0.5K Pirate's Beer Run" euro-style oval sticker. Stick to your car or anywhere to show your superiority over others.

You mentioned beer? Yes! Through our partnership with Hop Culture Farms & Brew Co you will receive a pour of one of their amazing craft beers. They are also hosting this event for us, so you will "run" (or walk, skip, whatever you prefer) around their property for the 0.5K, ending just steps away from their tasting room. With a variety of styles on tap at all times there is surely something you will love. Present your Beer Ticket (to be found in your pint glass) at the bar in the tasting room for your beer. Note: Not all beers may be available with the beer ticket.

What about that donut? We've partnered with our local Dunkin' Donuts to supply you with your after-run donut! We will have multiple options available for you to choose from, and you will present your Donut Ticket (to be found in your pint glass) for your donut at our Donut Tent. (Which may look exactly like our check-in tent.)
