Event Details

Onsite Registration and Bib Pick-Up

All runners must check in prior to the run at registration on Friday night at Trailblazer from 5:00 – 7:00 PM, or raceday at Edgewood Park from 10:00 – 11:45 AM to receive their race number, timing chip and 21+ bracelet.

Location: Trailblazer (map) | Time: Friday, 5:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.
Location: Edgewood Park (map) | Time: Saturday, 10:00 a.m. – 11:45 a.m.

It is strongly recommended that all runners arrive early to registration to alleviate race day delays.


There is NO PARKING available at the Festival at Edgewood Park. Please park at the Souther Connecticut State University lots 8 & 9 off of Farnham Ave (map). Signs will direct participants from parking to the festival. Please arrive early as this is a short walk from registration and bib-pick up.

What to Bring

ALL ticket holders need to bring an ID in order to receive their 21+ bracelet when they pick up their race bib prior to the race. The bracelet must be worn during the race and presented for entry into the Festival. Festival Only and Designated Driver participants must present their ID and their Eventbrite ticket at the gate of the Brew Festival at 12:30 PM, following the race for access to the festival.

Food vendors will be onsite selling, so cash is also recommended.

Enjoy Responsibly

The Craft Brew Races urge all attendees to enjoy their time responsibly. We recommend participants designate a sober driver or arrange transportation. We are happy to offer designated driver tickets whereupon they can enjoy the festivals’ great atmosphere, food and live music and offer you a safe ride home.

5k Course

The New Haven Craft Brew Race course is a shaded, tree lined run (or walk!) through Edgewood Park. The run starts in the Northwest corner of the Park and heads south, briefly leaves the park into the Edgewood neighborhood and past the Yale Bowl before reentering the park and a fast finish next to the Coogan Pavilion.

Volunteer Opportunities

Sign up to be a volunteer at any Brew Race venue to help with race registration and/or course marshalling and as soon as the run is complete join your running buddies at the festival! All volunteers get a T-shirt AND entry to the Brew Fest. Space is limited! Email us for more information at
