WHERE DO I PICKUP MY TASTING CUP & TICKETS?

Tasting cups and tickets will ONLY be available for pick up on race day at the beer token tent. To avoid lines, come early and pick up your cups and tickets BEFORE the race!

WHERE DO THE RACES START AND FINISH? WHERE IS THE POST-RACE PARTY?

The race will start South of the Morrison Bridge on Natito.  The post-race party & beer festival will be at Waterfront Park. 

IS THERE A TIME LIMIT TO COMPLETE THE 8K OR 10K?

Yes there is. The city of Portland requires events that take place downtown to maintain a 15 min per mile pace. We ask that everyone run / walk 15 minutes per mile or faster. If you happen to fall behind the pace tail car, you must walk or run on the sidewalks. Also, as a participant, it is your responsibility to begin the event on time. If you are late for the event and the tail pace car has already left the start area, you MUST run or walk on the sidewalk until you get ahead of the tail vehicle. The roads behind the vehicle are open to traffic and it is imperative to your safety that you do this.

IS THERE A GEAR CHECK?

For your convenience we have a complimentary clothing check, we have reusable bags for your use but we encourage you to bring your own. IMPORTANT! Please do not leave valuables at the gear check.  Although our gear checks are very safe and secure, we will not be responsible for any lost, stolen or damaged items.

IS THERE PARKING?

There is plenty of parking in downtown Portland. There is on-street parking as well as many Smart Parks located near the start / finish. However, we encourage everyone to carpool or take public transportation. There are MAX stops within blocks of the start / finish. We also encourage you to ride your bikes to our events!

Use the TriMet trip planner to plan how to get there via public transit: https://newplanner.trimet.org/map/#/

WHEN IS THE AWARD CEREMONY?

The award ceremony will take place at the post-race party at the main stage where the live music is played. The award ceremony starts at 10:15 AM.  

We will announce the top 3 male & female in each category (10k, 8k) and have goodie bags and plaques for those winners. We will NOT announce top finishers in age groups. We will have ribbons for top 3 in age groups at the results kiosk by the finish line.

CAN SPECTATORS COME AND WATCH THE RACE AND JOIN ME AT THE POST-RACE PARTY?

Yes! The event is open to the public and spectators can watch and enter the event for free. If they would like to purchase a tasting cup and tickets and join in on the drinking, you can purchase extra cups or tickets during registration.
