The Bird is a brand new addition for DFW's beer-loving runners. Logistically, the event ran pretty smoothly and there were 2 aid stations on the 5K course. (Much appreciated in the TX summer!) The course began/ended at the Martin House Brewery, a popular local hang. Excellent selection of beers! It was a small-ish pool of runners so if you're looking to place in your division, this might be a good event for you.
All that being said, I was a bit underwhelmed by the experience. I hate to admit that the swag/perks played a part! The event shirt was a shocking neon yellow color and it hurt my eyes to look directly at it. After the run, all finishers received an 8-oz plastic cup and one pour of beer. (Other beer-entered races in the area give finishers a commemorative pint glass and up to 3 pours. So my expectations were skewed.) We'll see if any of this changes next year though!
