Global Printing Solutions in Austin

Posts in the Marathon category

We co-sponsored and attended Circle Brewery’s 5th Annual .5K back in October, and it was an absolute blast! A 0.5K is only 1,640 feet, so it’s not exactly an endurance race. The micro marathon takes place at the brewery, in their oversized parking lot. All runners are divided into heats, and each runner is given 2 pints of beer with a fill line to hold while running. Any runner who spills below the line during their run is disqualified! Prizes were awarded to the winners of each heat, and our very own Austin a.k.a. Noodle won a ribbon! The event also benefited our long time partners, American Heart Association, and raised awareness about heart health. We supplied the Step & Repeat Backdrop and Finish Line Banner for the event. It was an awesome time, and we can’t wait to do it again next October! Check out the pictures below… All photography by Dani Parsons
