At the conclusion of Blue Springs 24 hour Run, March 7, 1994, Race Director Lou Joline proposed a local point to point adventure relay like the River to River run in Illinois. The popular Free State Brewery in Lawrence, about 50 miles away, was the logical destination. There had been two fun runs to Lawrence but on very busy roads. After countless hours of trial and error, the Brew to Brew course was established along the North side of the Kansas River. Initially 45 miles then 42.5 miles, it is currently 43.5 miles.
Course records are shown in bold print below.
Two trophies have been named for departed friends: The Mike Ott Adjusted Team Award, and the Jack Boyer Spirit Award. Ruth Micheler, second solo in 1999 and 2000, died in October 2000.
