What we're about

Mikkeller Running Club (MRC) is a fitness club bringing together friends both new & old through a shared love of running & beer. Some of us are ultra-marathoners, while others are casual joggers. What we have in common is shared community through fitness, beer, and making new friends. Our Orange County chapter (http://mikkellerrunningclub.dk/chapters/orange-county/) is one of hundreds of Mikkeller Running Club chapters across the globe. We're loosely affiliated with Mikkeller Brewing (headquartered in Copenhagen (http://mikkeller.dk/brewery/)with a satellite brewery in San Diego (https://www.mikkellersd.com/)).

MRC is free to join & open to runners of all skill levels! All our events are kid & stroller friendly, too, so feel free to bring your young runners along!

Follow us on Instagram (https://www.instagram.com/mikkellerrunningclub_oc/) and Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/mikkellerrunningclubOC/) for the latest updates!

We meet twice monthly for a casual group run followed by group beers together! Our Official Clubhouses typically supply each runner with a complimentary beverage of the hoppy persuasion at the conclusion of our run. We've taken a poll, and 9 out of 10 runners agree that this is a totally awesome thing (the 10th person apparently was a wine drinker, but he still runs with us.)

Mikkeller Running Club OC: MID-WEEK EDITION! (Group 5K + Post-Run Beers)

HEY THERE PARTY PEOPLE! Mikkeller Running Club Orange County is bringing you another round of running & beer craziness that is going to melt the soles of your running shoes and make you inexplicably break out into beer-fueled song & dance. Join us on the 4th Thursday of each month @ 7PM for MRC OC: Mid-Week Edition! We'll be meeting at the wonderfully tasty brewery known as Noble Ale Works in Anaheim! Oh hell yes, we’re getting this running bonanza started @ 7pm sharp! This is a pre-set (but casual) 5K group run around Angel Stadium. We’ll start & end the run at Noble Ale Works, where there is plenty of parking. We’ll review the route together beforehand, but it’s also attached to this event! Ready your tennies everyone, it’s time to run. Oh, and beer? Yes, those will be available, too. At the conclusion of our run, we’ll be enjoying ridiculously tasty post-run beers together at Noble Ale Works! Run like the wind, because you’re definitely going to want to work up a thirst for this righteous endorphin-fueled happy hour. Don’t forget! This is a night run, so be sure to bedazzle yourself in reflective gear and maybe a headlamp for added safety/style points! As always, this event is free to join, kid-friendly, and open to runners of all skill levels. P.S. Our events are typically dog-friendly; however, due to regulations out of our control, dogs are not permitted in the tasting room at Noble Ale Works (yet). Service animals, however, are always welcomed! Looking forward to seeing you all there!

Hope to see you there!
