Start with a party. End with a party.

SEVENTY48 Pre-Funk

When: Friday, May 31, 2:00–? PM
Where: The Social Bar and Grill in Tacoma
The day before race start we’ll be hangin with racers taking care of last minute business. Why not have a party at the same time? We’ll have food—have you eaten at Social? It’s awesome—and drinks. Drinks!

As much as we like Rainier, local beer master Harmon Brewery has teamed up with their Port Townsend counterpart, PT Brewing, and have made a beer for the event! Come drink some Human Powered Pale Ale! We are talking about two of the best beer outfits around joining forces. Delicious!

SEVENTY48 Finish line Clubhouse and Bar

When: June 1 when the first finishers arrive til June 3 when the Awards Ceremony ends it all.
Where: Pope Marine Building at the Finish line dock
You can thank us later. We’ve rented this building and are stuffing it with a bar, snacks, music, a couch, and a tracker to watch the race. It’s a place for family, friends, and fans to hang out and wait for teams to arrive, second guess teams tactics, and view the hallowed yet courageous eyes of victory in every team that finishes. All ages are welcome and it’s totally free to hang out.

R2AK Pre-Race Ruckus

When: Sunday, June 2, 3:00–8:00 PM
Where: Pope Marine Park, Port Townsend
That’s right. In Escherian fashion the finish line of the one is the start line of the other. SEVENTY48 will be finishing the day before R2AK begins. We’re going to have the SEVENTY48 award ceremony during the Ruckus. Awards given out at 6:30 PM, center stage.
