The Course

The Will Run For Beer 5k offers runners a rare chance to see where the world’s best craft beer is made! The race starts and finishes at Smuttynose Brewery, while the 5k course is relatively flat and traverses quiet, tree-lined streets in scenic Hampton, NH.

The After-Party

The Will Run For Beer 5k is much more than just a road race. Following the 5k, you have 1.5 hours to celebrate with two beers (21+) and your desired food choice with friends and family. The best part...EVERYTHING's included with the cost of your registration!

  • A cookout with hamburgers, hotdogs, veggie burgers, and cole slaw
  • Live music from Crab Shack!
  • Delicious Smuttynose craft beer (2 per person - 21+)

Packet Pick-up

You'll receive your race bib and shirt at the Registration Tent on the morning of the race starting at 6:30 am. Look for the "Registration" signs in the parking lot of the Smuttynose Brewery. We can't mail out shirts if you don't pick yours up at the event, so don't oversleep!

Directions & Parking


PLEASE PLAN AHEAD and arrive 1 hour or more before your race wave time.  Parking is 1/2 mile to 3/4 mile away.  The earlier you get here, the better your parking spot.  Late arrivals will have a good 3/4 mile hike to get their number.

The Will Run For Beer 5k will take place at the Smuttynose Brewery. However, there is no parking at the brewery. Please go to 1 Merrill Industrial Drive, Hampton, New Hampshire 03842.


Notice: No Parking at the Brewery

Parking is FREE! Once you turn onto Towle Farm Road, look for "Race Parking" signs. There's no parking at the brewery, so cars will be parked in a lot about a 1/2 mile away at 1 Merrill Drive, Hampton, NH 03842. It's then a relatively short walk to the Start/Finish area at the brewery.
