THE ELM GROVE COMMUNITY FOUNDATION
THE UNDERACHIEVER'S RACE FOR POUR RUNNERS
Join your fellow beer-drinking fun friends for a day (actually more like 15 minutes) of 'pour running', underachievement, glory, and celebration to kick of Oktoberfest in the village and raise money for a great organization, The Elm Grove Community Foundation! Race starts at 3:30pm (check-in begins at 2:45pm at O'Donoghue's Pub) and will finish....well, at 3:45pm at Oktoberfest beer tent! SPACE IS LIMITED SO REGISTER NOW!
This will be very fun, tongue-in-cheek event that will mimic the typical 5k....but will really be more of a walk/run beer parade from O'Donoghue's Pub to the Village Park Oktoberfest grounds to kick off the festivities. Children welcome to participate with root beer, adults over 21 will be enjoying some great brews along the way.
The "run" will start at O'Donoghue's Pub - check-in will be in the parking lot at 2:45pm, 'race'/beer parade will start promptly at 3:30pm. Conveniently, O'D's has offered all participants a free beer (beer-point #1 of 3) before the start of the race, so get there early. Yay beer!
The "race", will then head across Watertown Plank and down Elm Grove Street, to Juneau and the corner of Legion and Juneau (beer-point #2, must stop for one more beer here, because Wisconsin, amiright?!) then into the park where you will finish in a blaze of glory at the Oktoberfest tent (beer-point #3....which will conveniently be filled with MORE BEER!
There will be a "Racer's Podium" (ie. the Oktoberfest stage) so we can all relive the experience, talk about overcoming our hurdles, and take selfies to post on social media "I DID IT!!! I'M A FINISHER!! LOOK AT ME!!!" Oktoberfest organizers have offered all participants a free beer at the end of the race. Yay beer! Yay finishers! Yay selfies! And yay goodies and trophies!
