I’ve tried a mud run, a color run, a Halloween run, half marathon and a sprint triathlon along with a few regular 5k’s. So basically, I’m a sucker for a theme or a challenge. I got a new challenge to try the upcoming Tap n’ Run race in Cincinnati on Saturday, June 1st. I’m not even a big fan of beer but I do enjoy any excuse to run a fun run. The people watching alone at fun runs makes it worth it.
Here is more about the race from their organizers.
Tap ‘N’ Run is all about friends and teams, hilarious costumes and amusing group concepts, responsible entertainment and leave-the-kids-at-home-and-let-off-some steam. Tap ‘N’ Run is about drinking beer and having a ridiculously good time!
Tap ‘N’ Run 4K combines participants’ love of beer and running for a unique “one of a kind” run/walk race totaling 2.4 miles over the Purple People Bridge and by both Reds and Bangles stadiums. Participants are encouraged to dress in costumes and run with teams, friends and family of legal drinking age. A portion of the proceeds will also benefit the local charity, The Cincinnati Sport Corporation.
A lot of 5k races that I’ve been on reward you with a beer at the end. This one does that … and also switches it up the course by beer stations along the course. Each participant also receives a sweet finisher’s medal (that doubles as a bottle opener) and a race T Shirt.
