Join us at Town Center Park in Suwanee for a 5K run, local beer and great food on Saturday, March 20th at 11am.
The first annual Suwanee Beer Fest Beer Chaser 5K offers a thirst-quenching twist on the traditional 5K. This timed, Peachtree Road Race qualifying event is fitting for anyone, whether you are a competitive runner trying to beat your personal record, or you’re just looking to sip and stroll with your closest beer buddies. Just choose the ticket that best fizzes up your beer belly – either non-stop or with beer stops – and we’ll all cheers together at the finish line. Help us support Georgia breweries and local restaurants!
Benefiting Charity: HomeFirst Gwinnett
A portion of proceeds from the Suwanee Beer Chaser 5k will be donated to Suwanee Kiwanis Club in order to support HomeFirst Gwinnett, in honor and memory of Adam Edge. Adam was known for his huge smile and amazing laugh. He served as Suwanee’s downtown development manager, and built relationships with so many in and around our community. Adam passed away on March 25, 2020 at the young age of 37 after a hard fought battle with mouth cancer. Adam’s best friend, Matt Elder started HomeFirst Gwinnett due to the county having one of the largest homeless populations without any operating homeless facilities. Adam was passionate about this organization dedicated to developing innovative and coordinated solutions to ending homelessness in Gwinnett County by better connecting services for those who need them most.
