  • after party at a brewery

    The Wildfire Half is on school property, which means we cannot have beer on-site. However, our pals at Rabbit Hole Brewing have stepped in to avert this tragedy. Rabbit Hole Brewing will be hosting Wildfire Half runners at their brewery in Justin (20 min away) after the Wildfire Half! Runners will receive a discount on freshly brewed craft beer poured feet from where it was brewed.

    Location: 608 Topeka Avenue, Justin, TX 76247 (map)

    Anyone with a finisher’s medal gets $3 off the regular tour price.  (Regularly $10).   That includes a pint glass that you can keep and 3 tokens good for beer or discounts on merchandise.

    Their normal tour starts at noon, but on the day of the race, they will allow runners and their friends to arrive as early as 10 AM. Party on!
