Race Day FAQs 2019

Is there a bag check at the race?

Yes! Find out more here.


How should I get to the race? Where should I park?

Find out all about transportation and parking options here.


Can I run with a stroller? 

The Harpoon 5-Miler presented by Reebok is US Track and Field sanctioned, so we have to play by their rules. That means strollers and jogging strollers are not permitted. You'll have to brave the 5 miles solo, without your little ones.

In the interest of space, strollers are also not permitted in the event space after the race. Your partners and little ones can join you to celebrate your success after the race-- you'll just need to leave the strollers in the car or at home. 


Can I run with my dog?

The Harpoon 5-Miler presented by Reebok is US Track and Field sanctioned, which means that pets are not permitted to join us along the way.

After the race, for safety and space restrictions, we do not allow dogs into the post-race event space. But, plan ahead for our Harpoon Dogtoberfest in October where dogs are welcome!


Can my friends and family join me at the finish line?

We love when friends and family join us on race day-- they are absolutely invited to come watch and cheer you on! We just ask that they make some sort of small contribution to The Angel Fund if they're going to come enjoy the party. This could be anything from donating to your personal fundraising campaign, to tipping their bartenders, to buying raffle tickets for some sweet prizes at The Angel Fund tent.


Is there a minimum time I have to be able to run to participate?

The race is open to all runners; however, keep in mind that we begin to break down the race course around 11 AM, so we do not encourage walkers. 


When is the rain date?

There is no rain date. The Harpoon 5-Miler presented by Reebok is RAIN OR SHINE.


I can't drink beer. Will other options be available?

Yes! There will City Roots Cider and Arctic Summer hard seltzer available on race day.
