Strollers and dogs are welcome but please line up in the back and maintain a safe distance from others. Walkers allowed but please move to the sidewalk if directed by Waltham Police or course marshals.

Oktoberfest Four Miler Course "4 turns, 4 miles, and a hill."
The course starts on Waverley Oaks Road in front of the brewery, heading west. You'll turn right at Beaver Street, Forest Street, Trapelo Road, and back onto Waverley Oaks Road before dropping down to the finish line at the brewery's front door. So it's just four turns, and a nice long hill at mile one to keep things interesting.
