Introducing the “Duluth Park Series!” presented by Duluth Running Co.


The Duluth Park Series presented by Duluth Running Co. is a collaboration project with Duluth Running Co., DLH Clothing, and Hoops Brewing designed to bring awareness and make focused investments in Duluth Parks!


In 2018 we are throwing a launch party for four different parks around the area: Chester, Lester, Hartley, and the Lakewalk. Each launch party will include the release of a limited production shirt collaborated on by Duluth Running Co. and DLH Clothing, alongside the release of a limited production specialty “Park” brew by Hoops Brewing.


The first launch party benefits Chester Park and is on March 29th from 6 to 9pm at Hoops Brewing. Duluth Running Co. will be launching and selling limited edition Chester Park shirts designed by DLH Clothing. And Dave Hoops, owner of Hoops Brewing, will be debuting his Chester Bowl Pale Ale, specially dry hopped with Mosaic hops..  The night will also feature great raffle items for those in attendance. The launch party is free to attend and family friendly.

All proceeds from the sale of limited edition shirts on the launch night and a portion of proceeds from each pint of Hoops Chester Bowl Pale Ale will go towards the Scholarship program at Chester. Last year, Chester awarded over $25,000 in scholarship money between their summer kids camps and winter ski program, and were able to fulfill all of the scholarship requests. However, by meeting the scholarship requests, the Chester scholarship fund suffered a deficit and there is still work to be done to restore that impact. Come show your support for the lovely parks Duluth has to offer!
