Pub Run

Leah and I ran in the Skinny Raven/McGinley's Pub Run tonight...

Skinny Raven is a running store in downtown Anchorage that sells running shoes and clothing and hosts and sponsors running events all year to "ensure that running continues to be a positive and active outlet for anyone willing to lace up their shoes and hit the roads and trails."

McGinley's Irish Pub is a restaurant/pub that brings "a touch of old Ireland to downtown Anchorage. Providing entertainment almost nightly, McGinley's has an array of Alaska seafood and authentic Irish specialities on their menu and has a variety of local and Irish brews on tap.

The pub runs are traditionally between three and three and a half miles long and loop around downtown Anchorage using both sidewalks and trails. The runs always begin at Skinny Raven and end at McGinley's Pub. The dynamic of the runs is very laid back...literally providing runners with an opportunity to meet other local runners in a relaxed atmosphere... 


...and a reason to celebrate a great run with a tasty and refreshing local brew (optional, of course) from Alaska Brewing Company.
