Reynolds Brewery Otter Run 5K
The Eden Chamber of Commerce is excited to announce the REYNOLDS BREWERY OTTER RUN 5K that will be taking place this fall in Eden, North Carolina. We are especially thankful to Get Fit Eden and Gildan for sponsoring this event and making it possible. The proceeds earned from the 5k will go to the Eden Chamber of Commerce to help continue their service to the community.
The Otter Run 5k will take place on Saturday, September 11th, 2021, at the Eden Smith River Greenway on W. Meadow Road (Island Ford Landing) in Eden, North Carolina. Attendance check-off for those that registered will begin at 4:00pm and send off will be at 5:00pm. In due respect to the chosen date, this event will be in respect of the 20th year remembrance of the 9/11 tragedy. Emblems of remembrance will be on the t-shirts given to those that register for the run. There will be a brief moment of silence before send off in memory of those that lost their lives during the 9/11 tragedy.
The 5k will begin at the Eden Greenway on West Meadow Road (Island Ford Landing), follow the Greenway all the way down to the Eden YMCA on Kennedy Avenue, continue along the trails around the YMCA and go back down the Greenway, ending where it began on Meadow Road. The entire trail will be marked out, making it easy for the participants to follow without confusion. Although this will not be a certified 5k run, the participants will be given their run time upon completion if they wish to receive it.
Those that wish to participate in the run may register with the link provided below.
There will be no registration at the event so please take advantage of the pre-registration link. The registration fee is $25 dollars for all ages. Day of run, those registered, younger than age twenty-one will receive a Reynolds Brewery Otter Run 5k t-shirt. Those twenty-one and older will receive a t-shirt, a wrist band good for one free, brewed in-house, beer from Reynolds Brewery where the Riverfest Kickoff Party will be taking place after the run. Upon ordering your free beer, it will be served to you in a complementary Otter Run 5k cup. Due to the pre-registration process, all you will need to bring with you on run day is a valid picture identification. Upon checking in before the run, you will receive the appropriate wrist band.
All guests and 5k participants are invited to Reynolds Brewery on Meadow Road after the run for the Riverfest Kickoff Party sponsored by Eden Tourism Development. Reynolds is Eden’s newest and only microbrewery, serving a selection of beer brewed in-house and delicious brick oven pizza. Live band Carolina Kool will be playing from 6:00pm until 8:30pm.
We would again like to thank Get Fit Eden, Gildan and Eden Tourism Development for their generous sponsorship and Reynolds Brewery for hosting the Kickoff Party. We are looking forward to this event and the time spent with the members of the community!
Thank you so much for your support!
