The Trappist Craft Beer Lake Merritt Run

Update: Omni has requested to reschedule and will not be able to attend tonight with the drink tickets. Sorry for any letdown this has caused. 


We will be meeting at the Trappist in Oakland for Taco Tuesday and running a 5k or a ~5 miler (depending on your choice) then return for beers and tacos at the bar. The tacos are cash only. For the 5k, we will run 1.55 miles out to Lake Merritt and back. The 5 miler will take us around the lake and back.

While the route is mostly lit, we recommend bringing headlamps or flashlights. We will hand out glow bands before the run to help increase your visibility.

Although the meeting time is at 7pm, we typically don't start the actual run until 7:10pm

Like all runs, we will do our best to prevent you from getting lost (printed directions are often provided) and we are flexible when it comes to pace and distance.

Trappist on Yelp:

The Trappist is near 12th Street BART or there is usually free parking available across the street. Occasionally bars will hold bags for us, but this isn't a guarantee. 

Obligatory Disclaimer:

While the goal of this group is to have fun, safety is our top priority.  Please take precaution when participating on these runs - wear bright colors when running at night, always be aware of your surroundings, and do not drink and drive. Again, we strive for safety, but the organizers of this meetup are not held liable for anything that happens. If you bring a guest, you assume full liability for their participation.

    Update: I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but Omni has asked to reschedule their appearance so they won't be there tonight with the drink tickets. I'm sorry for any possible letdown, but we hope to still see you out tonight. -Ramon

    About the free beer...

    Omni Personal Storage will be providing our runners with a complimentary drink ticket when you subscribe (it's free) at their booth after our run. They will have a table setup on the back patio of the bar and will give you a drink ticket in exchange for basic contact info that you typically submit for other free registration processes.

    Enough drink tickets have been obtained to accommodate all members considering our average-high turnout. Unless we have record numbers, there should be enough for everyone.
