You know what’s great about running? Having a beer after you’re done. Well, sure, there’s the “runner’s high,” health benefits, awesome neon-colored clothing, and participant medals at all the races. But mostly it’s having a beer, right? Glad we agree.
Let’s say you find yourself at a local brewery in Medford, and you decide, “Hey, I think I’ve got more in me. I’m ready to keep running to the next place!” That’s where brewery-to-brewery running routes come in handy. Good news: they also double as walking and biking routes, and lots of them are close enough that you’ll still have plenty of energy to enjoy your beer once you get there. Of course, we always recommend enjoying responsibly…these breweries aren’t going anywhere after all, so you can take your time and plan several running/biking/walking excursions to tour all these Medford beer spots.
By the way, we’ve organized these routes in a sequence: Common Block to Opposition, Opposition to Walkabout, Walkabout to BricktownE, and so on…just in case you feel like making it a full-day running or biking tour from one brewery to the next (12.4 miles total). Click on the route links for Google Map’s step-by-step directions, and then lace up those running shoes!
