How can you go wrong with a 5K race where your entry fee gets you 2 beers, a bratwurst and a beer stein?
Plus, apparently, a lot of people running with you wearing "German" costumes?
Our local Harpoon Brewery in Windsor, VT, is holding their 9th annual Octoberfest 5K Race this Sunday, October 9, 2011, at 11:00am. Followed, of course, by the Vermont edition of Harpoon's Octoberfest celebration (there was also one last weekend in Boston).
I haven't finalized yet if I'll be running in it, but a neighbor of mine is, and it's tempting not only for all the fun and festivities but also because it is raising funds for the Friends of the Norris Cotton Cancer Center at Dartmouth (where I've recently had some personal experience).
If you are interested, one thing to note is that there is NO on-site registration. You must register online to run the race, and...
REGISTRATION ENDS TOMORROW, October 5th, at 12noon
From the pictures, it definitely looks like a fun time...
