Join us at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, August 12th at Laurelwood Brewing and enjoy a 5k-ish fun-run through the Rose City Park and Grant Park neighborhoods of NE Portland. Walk, jog, run… no one cares! We’ve mapped out a course that starts and ends at Laurelwood and our guides along the way will make sure you know where to go.
All participants receive a craft brew from Laurelwood Brewing, collectors pint glass or seasonal swag item, and other goodies from series partners.
Registration is limited so sign up today!
About the Race
Let’s consider this an “un-race” as it goes against many principles of other 5k races you may be familiar with. This is not timed and you will not get a medal when you finish. We also don’t close down any streets, but will make sure your route is safe and fun!
What a great excuse to enjoy Portland in the summer, sample beer from local breweries, and know that a portion of your entry fee is going to support The Portland Parks Foundation and Oregon Brewshed Alliance.
Things to Note:
- This will be an OPEN course, meaning roads will not be closed.You are responsible for obeying all traffic laws and regulations
- You must bring a valid ID or drivers license. You do not need to be 21 to enjoy the course, but you must be 21 to enjoy the beer. Please drink responsibly. (Registered, underage participants will receive a FREE non-alcoholic beverage)
- We run rain or shine! Dress appropriately for the weather
- There will not be a bag check; please plan accordingly
Race Day Details
The fun-run starts at 11:00 a.m. sharp! Please arrive 30 minutes prior to the start to get checked-in. Don’t forget some extra money! In addition to your FREE beer and swag, there will be merchandise for sale, food, and plenty more beer!
As is the case most places in Portland, parking is tricky at Laurelwood. There is public parking on the streets nearby and we always encourage carpooling and safe, designated drivers.
Look for our informational email closer to the event. We will remind you of these details and share anything else you might need to know.
Cheers to beers! We’ll see you at Laurelwood Brewing NE!
