6th Annual Yuengling Light Lager Jogger

On your marks, get set, go! This April we welcomed nearly 3,500 runners to Pottsville for our 6th Annual Light Lager Jogger 5K walk and run. For the sixth year in a row, a portion of the runner’s registration fee went directly to Operation Gratitude; a non-profit that sends 250,000 care packages annually filled with snacks, entertainment, hygiene and hand-made items to U.S. Service Members deployed overseas.

Yuengling fans from all over the country flooded into Pottsville, Pennsylvania in support of the race while also enjoying an action-packed party with live music, food and entertainment, both pre and post-race. I was lucky to kick off the race for the second year in a row.

Free brewery tours were leading up to the weekend as fans discovered our hand-dug fermentation caves that were used for storage before refrigeration. Visitors wandered through time and enjoyed a taste of living history in our historic brewery that has produced fine beers through times of peace, prosperity, and near beer during Prohibition.

A postcard and letter writing station was available at the finish line for all participants to write notes, which were included in the care packages shipped to service members via Operation Gratitude.

Since its inception, the Light Lager Jogger has raised over $60,000 for Operation Gratitude. A special thanks to all the runners, volunteers and partiers who supported the race. The Light Lager Jogger continues to be one of our most successful events, and that would not be possible without such loyal fans. We hope to see you next year!
