The countdown to 2016 Oktoberfest has started and the annual festival is less than 3 months away! We couldn’t wait to share the new and exciting addition for 2016: The first annual St. Alphonsus Brat Trot 5K Run/Walk. Mark your calendars for Thursday, September 22 at 6:30 PM and join us at Diversey Harbor for a scenic run along the Lakefront. It’s the official kick-off to Oktoberfest and a perfect excuse to run off those calories before a weekend of beer, brats, and live bands.
Runner registration is now open. For more information or to sign up, visit www.eventbrite.com and search for “Chicago Oktoberfest”. Use the promo code BULLETIN for $5 off the registration fee. Each registered runner will get free admission to the festival for the entire weekend, plus $10 in St. Alphonsus Brewer Bucks (to be used at the festival for the purchase of beer and/or food). For any questions, contact Megan Drohomyreckyj.
