PACKET PICK UP
Packet pick up information will be posted as it becomes available.
Rahr & Sons is bringing a time honored Oktoberfest tradition to the brewery with the traditional Oktoberfest Stein Hoisting Competition. We will randomly select six (6) girls and six (6) guys from the crowd to participate in the competition.
- Steins Up: Participants must hold their stein, with one arm only, perfectly straight out in front of them, parallel to the floor.
- Sipping and Spilling: Once a participant starts to spill, or drops or bends their arm – they're out.
The girl and guy that can hold their stein the longest without spilling will receive a free entry into next year's Rahr Oktoberfest 5K, a $25 gift card to the Rahr & Sons Gift Shop, and get to keep their steins. All other contestants will get to keep their steins as well.
Chrono Track Timing
Disposable timing tags will be used at this event. Age group awards will be determined by tag time.
1st overall and masters finishers in both genders will receive custom beer stein awards. Age group awards will be awarded to the Top 3 finishers in the following age groups: 12 & under, 13-15, 16-20, 21-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, 70-74, 75-79, 80+
Dress in your Oktoberfest best for the annual Rahr & Sons Oktoberfest 5K costume contest. Winners will be determined on stage and the best dressed lady and guy will win the coveted, commemorative Rahr Oktoberfest hand crafted, ceramicbeerstein!
