Parking

Event day parking will be available onsite at Edward Payson Park. Please allow yourself ample time on race morning to park and check in at bib pick-up. Please follow signs and the directions of the race volunteers on where to park.

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 Portland Craft Brew Race course is full loop of Portland’s Back Cove. The run/walk follows Baxter Blvd. and the Back Cove Trail with waterfront views throughout.

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 volunteer@craftbrewraces.com.
