Running route through West end of Alameda. Bib pickup was easy simply went to the race site the day before. The only negative was initial lack of info but once we found a link we got all the details. As I was part of a 4 person relay and it followed the 1/2 marathon course the biggest negative was in having to get everyone to their spot on the course. There was no shuttle service and the transition distances points were uneven. However afterwards was a treat with breakfast burritos, chips, energy bars, and seemingly endless supply of beer for those who wanted it. Additional vendor booths to walk around and socialize. Great time once you were done!

Production of this run was really well done. The notifications and pickup of BIB was great with preparty. Course meandered through Oakland showing off much of the area. 6 water stations along the course and post event was fun with Band, empanadas, energy snacks, and beer! Medal was huge. Due to the warm conditions the course took it out of me. Well done Oakland!

This is a pure fundraiser so advertised no frills-no t-shirts just 2 beers at the end. All $$ going to purchase shoes for kids. This run was a great one as check in was simple the course was flat and fast and at the end had breakfast taco’s -more than you could eat as well as the free beer. Also, they had left over event shirts/tanks from previous races so you came home with 1 or 2 plus they raffled off free race entries and other stuff. Will definately be back!

This was a great run which started at the Budweiser plant. Check in with simple and quick and well organized. Prerace warmup and Cinco dancers was a good element. Run started on time with a easy turn around sign at half way point- water at 1.5 miles for 5k which you don’t see too often. Fairly flat quick run. I loved all the elements with race vendors, taco’s and beer at the finish with Dutch Bros drinks and a few other things. There was little not to like about this one.

This was the 2nd year for this race and it keeps getting better. The course is a rolling uphill for first few miles then levels off and then you go down towards the end. The best part is the beer fest at the end. This year there was double the breweries-I believe 15 or so and you definitely got your fill if you wanted it. Great talking to other runners in line. The medal was cool and functional as a bottle opener as well. Hard not to like this event if your into beer and running. Best of both put together. Great enthusiasm by the announcer and crowd for beer mile as well. The only improvement may be to have an open division for the beer mile but that may get a bit long.

This run goes the parade route so the whole run you have people out on the road lined up cheering you on. A good short run but the bummer is running 2.5 miles back to the start area. Also, not enough port a potty’s at start of race.
