Yards has been brewing in Philadelphia since 1994.

The fall race, which is just under three miles, begins and ends at Yards Brewing Co. on Spring Garden Street.

After, there's a three-hour party. New for this year, the post-run celebration will take place inside the brewery warehouse.

And once runners cross the finish line, they'll get a complimentary beer from Yards.

Registration is $40 through Wednesday, Aug. 21. The price will increase to $45 after that date.

To register early, runners are invited to the brewery on Monday, May 20.

Join the Yards Bridge Runners for a 3.5-mile run before signing up, or just stop in to register and have a beer between 5 and 9 p.m. 

Those who make a $5 cash donation will get beer specials and a raffle ticket that could win prizes like race bibs or restaurant gift cards. All cash from donations and raffle tickets will go to Philly Achilles, a local nonprofit that pairs disabled athletes with fitness guides.

The 5,000 Yards Dash also benefits the charity.
