The Seattle Beer Run is not some college kid’s mission. It’s a way to tour part of Seattle in a jog and then celebrate the journey with a beer.

Each Saturday afternoon, Seattle City Running Tours hosts a five-mile run that starts at the Fremont Brewing Company, stops at a number of sites, and winds up back at the brewery for a beer or other beverage.

Rita Manley, owner-operator of City Running Tours Seattle, began the franchise (the tours operate in other major cities) after searching for safe places to run, and Seattle landmarks to experience.
