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 dates for the last two launch parties are:


October 24th – Lester Park Launch @ Hoops
December 12th – Hartley Launch @ Hoops


The third party benefits the Lester Park and is on October 24th from 6 to 9pm at Hoops Brewing. Duluth Running Co. will be launching and selling limited edition Lester Park shirts designed by DLH Clothing. And Dave Hoops, owner of Hoops Brewing, will be debuting his Lester Park Pale Ale.  The night will also feature great raffle items for those in attendance. The launch party is free to attend and family friendly.
