The Hudepohl 14K/7K Brewery Run, one of the TQL Beer Series events, kicks off Oktoberfest Cincinnati, the largest Oktoberfest celebration outside of Munich. The Hudepohl 14K (named after the iconic Cincinnati-brewed beer) and shorter 7K start and end along Cincinnati’s riverfront.
Along the course, you’ll pass by many of the historic brewery sites of early Cincinnati and follow the routes that the horse-drawn carts took to bring the beer from the breweries to the riverboats that would take the beer throughout the country. And once you’re finished, the party continues with an epic post race party with brews and snacks as those who have completed the TQL Beer Series can celebrate their Brew Hog-dom!
Location: Gateway West Office Building, 1st floor, 644 Linn Street Cincinnati, OH 45203
Packet pickup will also be available race morning outside on the Schmidlapp Event Lawn beginning at 6:00 a.m. (masks optional)
