Beers and Miles

Cris Gutierrez

Born and raised in Southern California, Cris’ passion for exploration and community found him embracing new roots in the Midwest.

Cris is often found logging miles or chatting about all things running despite claiming he’s not that into it anymore. Often seen with a beer in his hand some wonder whether his new found marathoning thing is just an excuse to visit new breweries.

Outside of his own personal endeavors he is also the founder of Ope Athletic Club, a midwest based racing team, and the captain of Hoof Hearted Brewing’s weekly running club.
