South Florida Craft Beer Run at the Tank Brewing Co. Runners love to celebrate the end of a race with a bevy of carbs and suds, but no brewery in Miami has thought to host a 5K until now. The Tank Brewing has teamed up with the founder of the Miami Marathon for the Craft Beer 5K Run to benefit Amigos for Kids, a nonprofit working to prevent child abuse, and Live Like Bella, which supports childhood cancer research. While the sweat dries, race participants can enjoy beer from nine local breweries, food, and live music. At the very least, it beats all of your other excuses to binge-drink. 6 p.m. Saturday, September 30, at 5100 NW 72nd Ave., Bay A-1, Miami; 786-801-1554; thetankbrewing.com. Registration costs $30 to $40 via southfloridacraftbeerrun.com.
