The Official Beer Relay at GO Fest

Kick off your GO Fest weekend with a team beer relay sponsored by Parkway Brewing and hosted by Fleet Feet Roanoke! Relay will be held on GO Fest premises at Elmwood Park on Friday, October 15, 2021 at 6:15 pm (mandatory pre-race meeting starting at 6:00 pm).

Bonus awards will be given for the best costumes inspired by the characters of Parkway Brewing! The Magestic Mullet, the Get Bent Grandpa (or Grandma), The Factory Girl, The Remedy Gypsy Woman, the Baltic Porter Raven or any other creative tie in you can come up with. Prizes will be provided by GO Fest, Parkway Brewing, Fleet Feet and Brooks Running to the top three teams and one for the team with the best costumes.

Race briefing will take place at 6:00 PM in front of the Elmwood Park stage & is mandatory (with ID) for all runners.

The cost of the race is only $40 PER TEAM (Up to 4 members) and closes on 10/14/21 at midnight.


This race will start in front of the stage and will take participants on a lap around Elmwood Park with a few surprises thrown in. The race will consist of 4 laps. To make this event more fun and a team effort, participants will ALTERNATE on each lap. You were going to have a beer that night with your friends anyway so why not do it with a relay? Prizes will be awarded to the top 3 overall teams, best team name, and best team costume. There will also be raffle prizes.
