Join us for the 4th annual BrewtoberFest 5K in Augusta this October.

The race starts and ends at River Watch Brewery, Downtown.

Friday, October 30, 2020, 6 pm

With each registration, 5k race souvenir soft style t-shirt.

You don't even have to show up.  New for 2020 is a BrewtoberFest 5K Virtual option too!  Including live tracking and virtual results submission through RaceJoy. (please note, virtual runners will not be eligible for awards)  Virtual Runners have from October 30 - November 7 to complete the 5K.

The BrewtoberFest 5K is a chip-timed USATF certified course, so yes it's a REAL IN-PERSON race.

Run along the shaded tree-lined streets of Old Town and past historic Magnolia Cemetery.

We will recognize overall 1st, 2nd and 3rd place male and female finishers and 1st, 2nd and 3rd place male and female age group finishers in 10 year age groups.

COVID-19 Guidelines
Please follow all national/state/local guidelines.  We will have a socially distanced starting line.  Athletes will be lines up 6' apart for the first 50, then we will leave the start line open for 10 minutes to allow for you to start when you feel as though you have space.  Please note, due to COVID-19, we will NOT have water stations on course, and we will not have a post-race party at River Watch Brewery, though they will be open and you can stay if you like.  Awards will be presented quickly following the event.  Only packets for Virtual Runners will be mailed out.

Where do I pick up my race packet?
In-Person: Friday night at River Watch Brewery from 3:30-5:50 pm
Virtual: Packets will be mailed out

Where is the start line?
In-Person: River Watch Brewery - 1175 4th Street
Virtual: ANYWHERE, you can even choose to run the course too (not while the real event is going on)

Can we bring our dog?
No, due to the open roads and runners needing to stay between the cones and the edge of the road, we ask that runners do not bring their pets to run.  

Can we run with our stroller? 
Sure, but keep in mind the course does have sections that we only use about a 2 foot wide section.  Due to this, passing may be difficult with a stroller. We also ask that strollers start in the back. 

Where do I park?
Parking Instructions for Brewtoberfest 5K
