CRRG Events brings FLIGHT by Yuengling to 2021 events, Carmel Marathon

February 1, 2021

Light beer brand joins as official partner, reaching 12,000+

CARMEL, Ind. (Jan. 02, 2021) – CRRG Events announced a partnership with brewery D.G. Yuengling & Son, Inc. and its brand FLIGHT by Yuengling for its five signature events in 2021, beginning with the Carmel Marathon Weekend on Saturday, April 3.

FLIGHT by Yuengling was launched by America’s Oldest Brewery® in February 2020 as a new upscale light beer, with 2.6 grams of carbs, 95 calories, and 4.2% ABV.

“With FLIGHT by Yuengling, we’re looking to provide active consumers with a high-quality light beer that fits within their lifestyles, without compromising taste,” said Jen Yuengling, 6th generation brewer, D.G. Yuengling & Son, Inc.  “Completing a race is a huge accomplishment, and we look forward to toasting the Carmel Marathon Weekend’s participants at the finish line in April.”

The 11th annual event brings participants from all over the country to the northern Indianapolis suburb, thanks to its flat course and reputation as a big city event with a small-town feel. In addition to the Carmel Marathon Weekend, FLIGHT by Yuengling will be an official CRRG Events partner throughout 2021 for the 8-Hour Dream Endurance Race & Cat Nap 5K, the Fair on the Square Marathon, Half Marathon & 5K Presented by Henricks Regional Health, the Indy Women’s Half Marathon & 5K and the Donut 5K. In total, the partnership will directly reach more than 12,000 participants and community members this year.

“We are so excited to have Yuengling on board and have FLIGHT by Yuengling on hand to help our participants ‘raise the bar’ during their post-race celebrations all year long!” said Todd Oliver, race director for the Carmel Marathon Weekend and CRRG Events.

The crisp, easy-to-drink beer is now available in 12-ounce bottles across Yuengling’s entire 22-state footprint. To locate FLIGHT by Yuengling at a store near you, please visit yuengling.com.

The Carmel Marathon Weekend will be an in-person event in 2021, with registration number restrictions and COVID-19 policies in place in accordance with local guidelines. A virtual option is also available. For more information on all CRRG Events races, please visit CarmelRoadRacingGroup.com.
