Description

Join us in Alameda Point, Alameda on the morning of the Beer City Festival for a run around the waterfront. Alameda Pint includes 10k and 5k races, as well as Questicorn - a unicorn-themed treasure hunt around Waterfront Park. The post-race celebration includes a selection of beers that will be served at the Beer City Festival, which starts at noon. Runners receive a 40% discount to the full Beer City Festival.

Alameda Pint runs from Radium Runway, which is immediately adjacent to Waterfront Park, out and around Alameda Point West, by Faction Brewing, Almanac Brewing, Admiral Malting, and The Rake.

The Beer City fun begins in September, with our Beer Trail, which encourages you to visit East Bay brewers and collects special tokens. We notify you by text message where these can be found. It's fun and it's free!

Runners receive a shirt, a custom Beer City tasting glass for the finish celebration, and the coveted Key to Beer City.

The Courses

Alameda Pint runs throughout Alameda Point. All races start and finish at Radium Runway, which is right next to Waterfront Park. The 10k course follows the Bay Trail along the waterfront to the gate on Monarch Street. You will run down by Faction Brewing, over by Humble Sea, right next to Almanac Brewing and The Rake. Then you go down Main and over W. Atlantic. Next thing you know, you're bumping into the 5k racers! Here's the course on Strava with the elevation profile (0 ft, which is hard to find in the Bay Area. 

For 5k runners, you head straight out along the waterfront towards the USS Hornet. There's an out-and-back on the dock, then you loop around the West side of Alameda Point. Then you are home at Radium Runway by Waterfront Park. Here's the course on Strava with the elevation profile.

Questicorn!

 

Questicorn is a part follow-the-leader and part treasure hunt. The Quest leads you around Almadent Lake in search of the Unicorn and their little nests of treats and surprises.

How do you find these? You receive clues on where to go and what to do. These clues come in a number of ways:

  • Some clues are on signs or markings on the ground in chalk
  • Sometimes The Unicorn will text your cell phone with directions at random as you're walking (or running)
  • Some Unicorn nests have QR codes that will text you a clue when you scan then

This game requires you to use your mind, solve little problems and in some cases cooperate with your other racers. You'll receive treats and surprises as you go. And who knows? Maybe you'll even have to come through the Festival area for a little taste of Beer City.

Questicorn is meant to be appropriate to play with kids though all ages are welcome. You can participate alone or in a team. Questicorn is designed so that you go as far on foot as you care to go. The entire game should take no more than an hour. 

Give it a shot. It's fun! And come on. Who doesn't need more unicorns in their life?
