Wristbands and beer tickets will be available for purchase (CASH ONLY) during the day. Can children participate in the run/festival? Yes, children may participate in both. They will be required to sign up for the run portion, but will not receive a Half 1 Free Beer upon completion (duh). There is no need to purchase festival tickets for children as the only registration for the festival will be for those who are 21+ and will be consuming alcohol. I want to run with my newborn, are baby joggers allowed? For safety reasons baby joggers will be asked to run in the back of the pack. Who should participate?  Anybody and everybody! 5K runs are fun for all ages/abilities! There will be a cutoff time of 50 minutes at which point we will re-open the streets and take down the Start/Finish line. Do I have to bring my ticket to the event? Yes. You will need to bring either the paper ticket or a digital copy. We will scan tickets at the ID Check Station. This ticket signifies that you have already paid for the run/festival. Without proof that you have paid you will be required to purchase another ticket in order to consume alcohol. Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the Festival? If you are 21+ you will need to present a valid ID (Drivers Licence or Passport) at an ID Check Station in order to receive a wrist band, Half Full Brewery Pint Glass and 1 Free Beer. There is no age limit to enter the actual Festival, however, anybody seen consuming alcohol without a wristband and proper identification will be promptly removed from the event and reported to the police. What are my transport/parking options getting to the event? The Event Map which includes public transportation options, parking, the race course, and post race Festival location can be found here: MAP What can/can't I bring to the event? ABSOLUTELY NO OUTSIDE ALCOHOL WILL BE PERMITTED. You will be asked to leave the Festival area if you bring in outside alcohol. There will be plenty of tables/chairs but you are welcome to bring lawn chairs and blankets if you would like to sit out by the water. Is my registration/ticket transferrable? The name on the registration/ticket doesn't match the attendee. Is that okay? Can I update my registration information? Yes, you may transfer your tickets to another individual, however, the ticket must reflect the new attendees name and they will need to be the same ticket type. Once you purchase a ticket, you cannot change the type of ticket, just to whom it goes. Anybody who is 21+ will need to present their tickets and ID at the ID Check Station in order to consume alcohol. What is the refund policy? Due to the complexity of organizing this event there will be no refunds issued. Pay it forward and give your ticket to a friend! Just make sure you change the name on the ticket.
