Now this is my kind of race! The Rock Island Parks and Recreation Department and Bent River Brewing Company present the Quad Cities' first 0.5K Beer & Donut Run.

This is a run that's a little more laid back than your typical 5K or marathon. There's no official timekeeping in this race, so everyone is a winner. Basically you just have to make your way around the course without spilling your beer and finishing your donut.

The $30 entry fee reserves you a spot and gets you a t-shirt, race number, race medal, event cup, and a pint of beer and a donut. Following the race you get to enjoy live music and more beer! If you want to skip the whole racing thing, you can pay $5 and enjoy the beer and music.

Money raised from the 0.5K go to benefit the Youth Recreation in Rock Island. The race happens Saturday, October 13th at Schwiebert Riverfront Park. For more details, check out the event page on Facebook.
