You running types,take note: You can justify every calorie of beer and food you consume if you participate in Hudepohl’s 14K Race, taking place September 17th in the Brewery District in Over-the-Rhine. They’ve asked me to be a Brewmeister, which basically means that I’ll tell you about some of the events. Which I’d do anyway (and, for the record, they’re not paying me).
The Hudy 14K has been run nine times before– it’s just been nearly a decade since it’s been run. The organizers call it the “original party that turned into a run”, referencing the Reggae Run and Run Like Hell, two other races that are more party than sport. There will be a Bier Laufen (an entertaining float race), 14K Run, 7K Run/Walk, Elite Race, Half Pint Dash and you can also run as a Six Pack or a 3-Way, tethered to either six or three of your friends.
And to top it all off– a big party, with lots of Hudepohl beer. From Hudepohl: “All preregistered participants will receive a very distinctive sublimated 14K Saucony technical T-shirt (orange for men and female sizes in pink), goodie bag, and a “special gift.” All finishers will receive the soon-to-be-legendary 14K finisher’s medal. Come enjoy a great spread from local iconic brands including Gold Star, Glier’s Goetta, DOJO Gelato, Taste of Belgium, and other local/national partners. Participants of drinking age will be able to enjoy plenty of Hudy post-race in our bier garden area”. Entry is $45 before September 1. Costumes are encouraged,
You’ll hear a bit more about this as I get more information. It might actually inspire me to start running…
