Austin Marathon Brews Another Partnership with Oskar Blues Brewery
November 5, 2019
Oskar Blues Brewery Austin will be Official Beer sponsor for fourth year in a row
AUSTIN, Texas, November 5, 2019 – The Ascension Seton Austin Marathon welcomes back Oskar Blues Brewery Austin as the Official Beer sponsor. For the fourth year in a row, the Austin Marathon will feature Oskar Blues signature Austin-brewed beers at the finish line festival’s beer garden for finishers aged 21 and over. The 29th annual Austin Marathon, owned and produced by High Five Events, will take place on February 16, 2020.
“We don’t have to be part of every occasion but the moments of celebration and accomplishment, like at the Austin Marathon, are definitely the ones we want to remember and be part of with the ones we love,” said Leilani Howard, Marketing Manager Oskar Blues Brewery Austin.
Oskar Blues Brewery Austin, the original craft beer in a can, will offer participants and spectators 21 and older their award-winning, Austin-brewed beers on race day. The Austin Marathon’s beer garden will provide runners and their friends and family a place to gather, relax, and celebrate their accomplishments. They’ll enjoy any one of Oskar Blues’ signature craft brews post-race. Available beers include Austin’s own Dale’s Pale Ale, Mama’s Little Yella Pils, and a few other locally-brewed Oskar Blues beers. If runners visit their brewery after race day, the first beer is on the house when runners show their bib.
“Our partnership continues to grow just like the popularity of the Oskar Blues Brewery beer garden on race day,” said Jack Murray, co-owner of High Five Events. “The post-race celebration lasts for hours as friends and family celebrate their Austin Marathon accomplishments on historic Congress Avenue.”
The Austin Marathon will celebrate its 29th year running in the capital of Texas in 2020. Austin’s flagship running event annually attracts runners from all 50 states and 30+ countries around the world. Having start and finish locations just a few blocks apart, being within walking distance of many downtown hotels and restaurants, and finishing in front of the picturesque Texas State Capitol makes the Austin Marathon the perfect running weekend destination. Registration is currently open.
