Race Information

Last year this event sold out well in advance of race day and it wasn't a surprise to most people who have participated in the past. What can we say about the Bridge to Brews besides this is simply an event you cannot miss! What better way to get your running or walking season kicked off than to participate in an event that embodies all things Portland?

First off the race starts and finishes near one of Portland's original breweries...Widmer Brothers Brewing Company! The event also features two great distanes that take you over a couple great bridges. Last but certainly not least, everyone gathers after the event for great music, food and beer (it is called Bridge to Brews after all).

Top Tips for this Event

Prepare for some short but somewhat significant incline when heading up and over the bridges. It may not look like much from afar but you will feel it.
Stay loose when heading back down the bridges, increase your turnovers and get some of that free speed!
With any large event like this you will want to pick up your race pack in advance, and allow extra time when showing up on race day.

Course Information

The Bridge to Brews course features a couple fantastic bridge crossings, and, has been specialy designed to not cross over any railway tracks at all.

Hills are a factor in this event, with decent climbs up both of the bridges.
