- 3 miles/5K, 6 miles/10K
- Road Race
A local road race that starts and finishes at the Cape Cod Brewery, yes please!
The race started at 4pm allowing for an after party at the brewery with beer, food trucks, free soup and bread from Not Your Average Joes and local band 57 Heavy. In it’s first year the race had 700 runners and featured both a 5k and 10k option. All runners received a free beer ticket, Cape Cod beer pint glass and a long sleeve tech shirt. Age group winners won more free beer—first place men and women received a coupon for a 64 oz. growler!
The course itself was pretty boring. The 10k ran the 5k loop twice. The loop wasn’t quite 3 miles so there were 2 little side roads that we went down and back up. The sharp turnarounds were brutal. I had to swing super wide but I still worried that I would slip. The 5k/10k split was SO CONFUSING! I had no idea where I was going and if I was supposed to be following the 5k runners. There was a mini loop, unmarked, that I am pretty sure some of the 10k runners skipped due to lack of signs and race support.
Even the finish was confusing! The 10k runners didn’t get to go through the finish line banner. We had to make a sharp left right before it and finish near a rope with the finish line mat and a lady with her clipboard.
Overall, boring and confusing course but a great time and fun race with friends!
