Run Lehigh Valley

Oktoberfest 5K-ish (the ‘ish series)

Race Date: Oct 01 2017, 12:00 PM


Not your typical 5K…not really a 5K at all but calling it a run makes us feel better! Select a starting location and run from bar to bar – collect tickets at each participating location to increase your chances at prize raffles and meet back up with everyone for an after party! This isn’t a timed event – but we are sure to see some competitiveness arise. Top prizes awarded for the “best” running attire – all other prizes on random drawings.

Costumes aren’t required but are highly recommended! – Here’s a great resource for Oktoberfest costumes –

Make sure to register early – to guarantee your mug and t-shirt.

All participants receive: 2 FREE Beers, T-shirt, beer specials, FUN!  (T-shirts guaranteed if registered by September 28)


$25 if registered by September 10
