After running, jogging or walking their way through the scenic 5K course, which begins and ends on the Oktoberfest grounds, participants can enjoy live music, authentic German food and other Oktoberfest-themed surprises. Registrants will receive a 5K t-shirt, an official Yuengling Oktoberfest beer stein/mug and a complimentary Yuengling Oktoberfest 24-ounce beer. New this year, root beer is available in traditional mugs, so that race participants under age 21 can also partake in the celebration.
Proceeds from every 5K registration go directly to ArtsQuest to help fund its mission of engaging and revitalizing communities in the Lehigh Valley through arts programs and cultural events.
The Yuengling Oktoberfest 5K race will begin at 10:30 a.m. at the ArtsQuest Center on the Oktoberfest grounds at SteelStacks. For more details about the event and to register for the Oktoberfest 5K, visit https://www.steelstacks.org/oktoberfest5k/.
