The Hudepohl 14K/7K Brewery Run wraps up the TQL Beer Series and at the same time kicks off Oktoberfest Zinzinnati, 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!
Participants may switch races online through September 16 by clicking here. After the 16th, switches may be made at packet pickup, pending the race is not sold out.
Transfers are now available online through 9/16. Existing participants can transfer their 14K or 7K entry to another person by clicking here and scrolling down to the transfer category. To complete the transfer, you will need to have your transaction number and email address associated with your original registration. After completing the transfer form online, you will receive a code which you will give to the new registrant. The new registrant will use that code to complete their entry online.
There is a $20 fee to transfer your entry to another person. This is used solely to cover the administrative costs associated with the transfer. Any payment, reimbursement or exchange of funds associated with a transferred entry takes place between the two individuals involved. The TQL Beer Series does not facilitate the payment between two parties.
