So what exactly is it?

It’s really quite simple — The Craft Brew Races are a series of timed 5k’s open to beer lovers of all speeds, and beer festivals highlighting the local craft brewing scene. The 3-hour post-race celebration features included sampling of more than 30 breweries, live music and food trucks.

You don't need to run the 5K to enjoy the Craft Beer Festival! Festival Only tickets are available.

What do I do?

Step 1. Run, or walk a relaxed, but timed midday 5k open to runners and walkers on scenic courses. Costumes encouraged!

Step 2. Relax and hydrate at the 3-hour post-race craft brew festival featuring free sampling of more than 30 local breweries.

What do I get?

All 5k participants and festival-goers receive a pint glass and entry to the festival — including beer sampling, live music, vendors and food trucks selling onsite. All Designated Drivers ticket holders receive a different bracelet at registration. They are welcome to enjoy the festival and designated snacks and non-alcoholic beverages.

COVID-19 Refund Policy

We are unable to process any refunds in these devastating and unpredictable times due to the novel COVID-19 pandemic.

If it is determined by state and local officials that we are unable to host the event as planned, all registrants will be automatically deferred to next year’s event.


Our events are held rain or shine. However, there is always the potential for extreme or severe weather conditions. Race organizers will do as much as we can to ensure the experience is as safe as possible. In the event of severe weather, the race may be delayed as race officials consult public safety officers. If there is more than a short delay, if conditions persist, or the forecast calls for extreme weather, race officials reserve the right to alter or cancel the race. We do not schedule "rain dates". Any decision to cancel an event is done as an absolute last resort and is made collectively with local risk management, police, fire & rescue, and medical personnel as appropriate. In such situations, there will be NO REFUNDS as registrants accept any such risk of their entry free when signing up.

Please check the website, our Facebook page, and your email before the race for any changes or cancellations.
