The Harpoon 5-Miler road race was founded by Harpoon Brewery and presented by Reebok to express a passion for running and to give back to the community. The race benefits The Angel Fund non-profit organization whose sole purpose is to support ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease) research.
This 5-mile road race through our South Boston neighborhood begins and ends at the Harpoon Brewery with a celebration for 5,000 runners with food, entertainment, and, of course, fresh Harpoon and UFO beer. Watch the 2017 video here and read why the Harpoon 5-Miler is listed as one of “13 Can’t-Miss Craft Beer Race” by Runner’s World.
Thanks to the City of Boston, the race has grown exponentially over the years. To date, Harpoon Helps has raised over 1.5 million dollars for The Angel Fund. 100% of funds raised by The Angel Fund go directly to ALS research.
