When you complete your race, the party begins! The Walkersville Volunteer Fire Department Carnival Grounds is the venue for celebrating the Summer Solstice and your own accomplishment. Grab a beer, get some food, and enjoy the warm summer evening.
One complimentary beer for runners 21+ (additional beer tickets for sale)
Food truck onsite
Race Night Expo
The FEW (Modern Rock with a Classic Rock Test) will be playing 8:00pm - 10:00 pm on the stage in our celebration area. Bring a lawn chair or a blanket and settle in for the show. If you have a great time at our Summer Solstice 8K party, you can enjoy more great music from The FEW at Alive@Five at Carroll Creek Amphitheatre on June 23!
Grab 'n Go snack bags will be given to runners at the finish line with snacks donated by Food Pro and Wegman's.
As another enhancement to our post-race party, we'll have Bangin BBQ food truck on-site. So after your race, plan to stick around for dinner while you enjoy the music.
One beer ticket is included with your registration. Additional beer tickets may be purchased by runners and spectators for $5.00.
Water and some non-alcoholic beverages will be available after the race. Other non-alcoholic beverages may be for sale at the food truck.
You MUST bring photo ID in order to be served beer. No exceptions.
Please drink responsibly. Consider using Frederick County's SOS Safe Ride to get you and your vehicle home safely if you find you've overdone it. Our volunteers will be happy to help you arrange transportation.
