Can I run with my dog? Are baby strollers/joggers allowed?
The Harpoon Octoberfest Race is USA Track and Field sanctioned, so we have to play by their rules. That means you'll have to brave the 3.6 miles solo-- no furry friends or little ones.
Can I bring my dog to the post-race party?
Yes! Your furry friend is more than welcome at the post race party. We just ask that all dogs be kept on a leash and are well behaved. Harpoon reserves the right at any time to ask that a dog and its owner leave the event if the dog is not leashed, cleaned up after, or is misbehaving in our opinion. No refunds will be issued if a dog owner and dog are expelled.
Do you allow walkers?
No. Due to the heavy traffic on the race course, we cannot keep the course open longer than necessary and are unable to accommodate walkers. Thank you for respecting our community and the race rules!
Is Parking available on race day?
Parking is available on site at the Harpoon Brewery, Windsor, VT. Note, our site is very busy with other businesses in Artisans Park and you may have to walk/run up to .3 miles from your car to the start/finish line. Please plan accordingly and arrive early!
When is the rain date?
No rain date. The Harpoon Octoberfest Race is RAIN/SHINE.

What should I bring with me on race day?
Please bring a photo ID. All runners must be over 21. After you have checked in and before the race you will need to go to the Wristband/ID Station inside the event space to get a wristband for the post-race party. If you do not have a wristband, you will not be served. Wristband + ticket = Beer.
How do I get my beer tickets on race day?
Your beer tickets and food ticket are attached to your bib #. Tear them off when appropriate, but don’t lose them!
Where can I leave my bag during the race?
We will provide a bag drop area, but it will not be as secure as a traditional bag check. It's a good place to store a small bag with a fresh t-shirt, but please do not leave your valuables.
Can my non-running friend/family member hang out at the post-race party with me?
Yes, your supporters can definitely join you for the post-race party!
Can I pick up my bib before the race?
Packet pickup opens at 8:00 AM on Race Day: Sunday, 10/7/18.
