But Wait, There’s More!
Flaunt your speed and your strength during the 0.5k (half a kilometer) Superhero Fun Run! For an extra 10 bucks, you’ll get a collectable Kirkland Spring Beerfest T-Shirt, an extra beer token and BAM - bragging rights at your Headquarters water cooler! The 1,640 foot long race course will be an excellent way to start your afternoon.
Entry into this Epic Event is just $30 advance (+ the optional $10 to add the 0.5k run) and includes a 5 oz. commemorative Kirkland Spring Beerfest glass (for the first 1,000 guests), six tasting tokens, and the opportunity to sample your choice from over 25 seasonal local brews. Superheros who don’t come in disguise and wear their actual costumes will get an extra tasting token!
Q: What is the deal with tokens?
A: Each token is redeemable for one taste.
Q: Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?
A: Yes! Everybody in attendance must be 21 and over, and have ID present at the event.
Q: What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?
A: Parking is limited, and we encourage responsible consumption. Areté is just two blocks from the Kirkland transit center, and of course ride sharing apps are always an option.
