RACE DAY QUESTIONS
PARKING/GETTING TO THE BREWERY QUESTIONS
I don't have a credit card. Can I send a check and a paper registration form?
Sorry, the only way to register is on our website through the lottery system, March 13-March 20th.
Can I register a team?
Yes, you can enter the lottery to try to get a 6 Pack Team spot. Details are on the REGISTER page.
Is there a way to make an additional donation to the Angel Fund?
You bet! Donate here so that you can help us raise even more money to fight ALS. Heck, if you are feeling really ambitious, ask your friends and family to chip in too! All runners can create their own fundraising page if they wish.
Can I enter both the 6-Pack Lottery and the Individual Lottery?
No. You will only be able to enter one lottery. If you are part of a 6-Pack, you have an option while you are completing your entry to tell us whether or not you'd like to be entered into the Individual Lottery if your team is not selected.
When will I know if I’m in or not?
We will be sending out emails on Tuesday, March 21st. If you are in, you'll get a link to a payment form where you can enter your credit card information and be charged the $60 registration fee.
Do you have any more registration questions?
Visit the Registration FAQ page
6 packs are scored by total time of all 6 team members. (2 min men and women for Co-ed category)
Can I run with my dog? Are baby strollers/joggers allowed?
The Harpoon 5-Miler to Benefit the Angel Fund is US Track and Field sanctioned so we have to play by their rules. That means you'll have to brave the 5 miles solo, no furry friends or little ones.
After the race, for safety and space restrictions, we do not allow dogs into the post-race event space. In the interest of space in the event space, strollers are also not permitted.
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. And the post-race party wraps up at 2 PM.

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 (if you haven't already picked up your number and chip before race day) and before the race you will need to go to the Wristband/ID Station inside the main tent 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?
When you pickup your bib number you will need to show ID and then receive your beer tickets. If you bought additional beer tickets when you registered, a volunteer will hand them to you when you pick up your bib.
Remember - Wristband+ticket = Beer.
Our friends from Mobile Locker Co. will be here as well, with portable lockers to rent. Both are great options!
Can my non-running friend/family member hang out at the post-race party with me?
Yes, your supporters can join you at the post-race party. There is a $10 suggested donation. Beer tickets will be available for purchase for $6.
Does my race fee include admission into HarpoonFest?
HarpoonFest and the Harpoon5-Miler are separate events. Your race fee includes food and two beers at the post race party on Sunday. If you want to go to HarpoonFest, you may do so Friday or Saturday night separately.
Can I pick up my bib and chip before the race?
Yes, we are holding packet pickups at the Harpoon Beer Hall and The PUMA Store Assembly Row the week of the race - check out more info on packet pickup here
PARKING/GETTING TO THE BREWERY
Is Parking Available?
Because of the race and Harpooners that weekend, there is NO parking available at the Brewery on May 21. There is parking for a fee at the garage located directly across the street from the brewery, but it will be busy with a commencement next door. We have identified a few parking lots for you to use on race day here on Parkopedia as well. We highly recommend that you take public transportation to the brewery.
