Carolina Brewsfest 8 Miler & 5k

Sat July 18, 2020 High Point, NC US 27262 Directions

What new procedures have been put in place for health and safety because of COVID-19?

Runners will be assigned a very specific time for their wave start of 25 people.

Staff and volunteers will wear masks and gloves at all times.

There will be very little on-course aid.  We ask runners to bring their own hydration and fuel.

There will be hand sanitizer readily available in numerous locations.

The venue will be marked so that social distancing standards can be established.  

This is not a complete list.  Continue to check our website for updates.

Can I register on race day?

No, because of limitations on crowds, wave assignments and other COVID restrictions, registration will close in advance of race day.

Where can I check in my gear?

There will be no bag check for health and safety reasons.  Parking is available close to the start and finish line, so please store your things in your car.  Do not bring valuables.

Can I walk the event?

We love our walkers. We ask walkers to be aware that course time limits are race specific. For road races, we ask for a 16 min./mile pace. If you fall below this pace, we can unfortunately no longer guarantee course support—which is paramount for your safety. Aid stations, medical support, portable toilets, and road closures will start to become unavailable to participants. The local police and race organizers will ask you to reroute to a shorter version of the course, or move up onto the sidewalk where you will be required to obey regular traffic laws.

Is there any race schwag?

All registrants for the event enjoy a great course and race, custom finisher medals, custom race shirt, 2 coupons for NC craft brews (21+ years old only) that you will enjoy at the brewery at some point within the next month after the event.  

Are Strollers allowed?

Running baby strollers are allowed but must have a minimum of 6″ wheels.

What is your race day cancellation policy?

In the event the race should be canceled for reasons beyond the control of the Race Director or Race Committee (inclement weather or unsafe weather conditions; local, state or national emergency), refunds will not be made, but race packets, including race shirts, will be available at a location to be determined.

Can I run with my pet or use inline skates?

Sorry, but for safety reasons, we do not allow dogs, bicycles, inline skates or any means of transportation other than running, walking or wheelchairs.  Race Director reserves the right to reject any entry or to remove any participant from the race course without explanation.

How can I check to see if I am registered?

Select "More" tab in Runsignup. Select "Participant Tracking" tab and enter your name.

What are my options if a "live" event is postponed, cancelled or virtual?
