When I first wrote about Craft Brew Races a year ago, they were a start-up series with a cluster of races in the New England area.

They’re growing quickly.

In 2015, the events are moving westward with 10 total locations that include Austin and Boulder.

Those two cities make sense for locations, with Austin being the location of the Beer Mile World Championships and Boulder is, well, Boulder.

Each event is a 5K that features individual prizes as well as team awards for largest team, fastest team and largest team from a brewery.

Last year’s inaugural series featured more than 100 local craft breweries at the races, and this year is looking to be even bigger. They’re still gathering sponsors but have already partnered with Sam Adams and Traveler Beer.

You can find all of their events via Facebook and learn more on their website.
