Runners hit pubs for charity event
OKLAHOMA CITY—A special event to benefit an injured Oklahoma City police officer let rowdy runners take to the streets Saturday in Midtown.
Organizers say more than 800 runners participated in the 2nd annual McNellie’s Pub Run Saturday morning.
Participants were able to choose to run a couple of options, including the “Guinness Challenge.”
On that course, runners finish three 12 ounce pints of Guinness during a four mile run.
Joe Wolf, General Manager of McNellie’s OKC, said, “It’s really fun, something different. You know, beer drinkers and serious runners all combine here and you’ll have a good time.”
All proceeds from the run benefited the Chad Peery Foundation.
Officer Peery was paralyzed while trying to escort patrons from a local bar a little more than a year ago.
