Cheers!  It's time to start prepping for The Red Hare Oktoberfest 5K on Sept. 22, 2018 at Red Hare Brewing Company in Marietta.  


The Red Hare Oktoberfest 5K will take you through the streets of Marietta ending with a Red Hare beer garden celebration featuring live music, food and complimentary beer tasting (for those 21 & over, non-alcoholic Red Hare Root Beer soda will be available for anyone unable to drink beer).  All runners will receive a custom Red Hare Classic 5K pint glass and the first hundred or so runners back to the brewery will get a chance to taste our specialty Race Casks, get ‘em while they last!  Overall awards will be given to M/F winners and the top 3 in all the usual 5 year age groups 10 & under to 75+. We hope you’ll come run with us!
