Carrying on Philadelphia’s centuries-old reputation as a great beer city, Yards Brewing Company attracts beer aficionados who appreciate high-quality, artisan brews.

Great American Brewery Runs' 5,000 Yards Dash will return to Yards Brewing Co. in October. The race, which is a little less than 3 miles, will begin at Yards and wind along Delaware Avenue and Penn's Landing, before finishing back at the brewery.

Across the finish line will be a post-race party with food trucks and beer. All 21-plus finishers will receive one free Yards beer.

Online registration for the short run will open at 10 a.m. on Thursday, May 4.
