Have the Best Day of Your Spring with the Sly Fox Brewing Company Fox Trot 5K

Registration for the Fox Trot 5K and Food Truck Festival opens February 5 at 10:00 am

May 21, 2016, the third annual Sly Fox Brewing Company Fox Trot 5K and food truck festival, Taps, Tunes & Trucks, is the perfect way for runners to spend their Saturday! 

"Race directing is stressful but there is something special about this race," offers Carl Ewald, Race Director. "The Fox Trot 5K is great race with awesome food trucks… hanging out in the sun, playing yard games, listening to music, and enjoying great craft beer.  It was a perfect day." 

The Festival

If you love craft beer, you will love Sly Fox Brewing Company's Taps, Tunes & Trucks event. The festival kicks off at the finish line when runners, their cheerleaders and visitors can enjoy offerings from eight food trucks: including some of Philly's favorites like The Cow and the Curd, HEART, and the Sunflower Truck Stop.  Live music and yard games like Kan Jam, life-sized Beer Pong and Corn Hole complement finish line festivities.

The Beer

There is no better way to end a race than with a beer in hand! The official race beer, Sly Fox Grisette Summer Ale was a Great American Beer Festival gold medal winner in 2014 (and silver  medal winner in both 2013 and 2015).  Grisette embodies refreshment and it's the perfect beer to enjoy in the sun after a great spring run. 

The Swag

The swag is top of the line for beer loving runners too. Instead of t-shirts, the Fox Trot 5K will reward every finisher with a unique can-shaped glass and, instead of medals, runners will receive a sleek commemorative stainless steel koozies!   

Special Charity and Team Gift

New for this year, any runner who donates $20 of more to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society Team in Training will be rewarded with an official race Freaker and runners who bring a team of 10 or more, will earn a free Freaker for everyone on the team. 

What is a Freaker? It's a new, unique koozie made of stretch yarn so it will fit on any beer from a 12oz can to a 32oz Growler! Check it out here.


Starting February 5 at 10:00am, runners can register online at:  The race sold out last year more than a month in advance and it is expected to sell out even faster this year. Do not miss your chance.
