Runners can start training early for the 10th annual Fremont Oktoberfest 5K presented by Pyramid Breweries and taking place Sunday, September 23rd at 10:00am. The official 5K takes race participants from the Solstice Plaza (near N. 34th Street and Fremont Ave North) along the scenic Burke Gilman Trail and Ship Canal and ending in the beer gardens of Fremont Oktoberfest.
Regardless of experience, these lighthearted training tips will prepare Fremont Oktoberfest 5Kers for the ultimate autumn run.
o Beer Belly Division: Got a beer belly? No problem. Beer Belly Division participants will be treated like Oktoberfest royalty. Entrants that jump on the scale and qualify for the prestigious position – men who are +220 pounds and women who are +175 pounds – form this coveted crew. Besides earning the respect and admiration of fellow racers, division members will be honored with the unfair advantage of starting first, and thus ensuring the possibility of getting to the beer garden finish line before the rest of the pack.
o Team Division: Running is more fun with friends! Dress in dirndl, lederhosen or costume of choice and take your buddies to the streets in the four-person team division. The winning team will be determined by average race times.
Kick off the fall with the season’s first 5K! For more information or to register to run, visit FremontOktoberfest.com/run. Keep up with the Fremont Oktoberfest 5K runners at Twitter - @FOktoberfest #FOKT5K.
