My 49th race of 2019 was the Alamo Beer 5K. There was also a 10K. This event is the first race of the Alamo Beer series of 4 races that gradually increase distances over each event in preparation for the San Antonio Rock n Roll Marathon and Half Marathon in December. Put on by local race company Scallywompus, these are quite popular events, especially as the motto of Scallywompus is “Come for the race. Stay for the party.” They are not kidding, either, Scallywompus throws one heck of an after party. Between the 10K and the 5K there were about 1100 registered, so it was quite filled up. Event location was Alamo Brewery near downtown San Antonio.
