The Cincinnati Beer Run celebrates a renaissance of the rich brewing history that once defined the Queen City area. In 2003 the Hofbrauhaus opened its doors in Newport, KY. Two years later, a determined husband and wife maxed out their credit cards to start Mt. Carmel Brewing. Today, the Christian Moerlein brand has been resurrected, giving hope to upstarts in the area like Double Barrel Brewing.
Join us for a very special happy hour on Friday, September 28 as the first wave of runners will depart from the Newport Oktoberfest at the Levee at 7:00pm and cross the Purple People Bridge to touch both sides of the Ohio. Four beer stops later participants will cross the finish line and head to the Oktoberfest tent to enjoy live music and their pour of craft beer.
Early Bird $39 - until 7.31.12 / Regular $44 - until 8.31.12 / Late $49 - until 9.27.12 (close)
Meet Your Race Director:
BJ Edgar grew up running track and playing football for the Dayton Green Devils in the Greater Cincinnati Area, but now calls the new development of The Banks home. (All the closer to his beloved Bengals!). Always a fan of everything his great city has to offer - from sports teams, museums, and night-life, to the historic culture that still resonates throughout the city and the community today, BJ is grateful to witness the resurgence of Cincinnati's brewing heritage. He is a marketing maven in the insurance industry by day - and a drinker of well crafted lager by night.

The Marvin Lewis Community Fund seeks to empower, educate and inspire individuals in the Greater Cincinnati region through ongoing outreach programs. We host several fundraising events, and accept general donations to raise money in order to support these programs which now primarily focus on educating young people in the community. Over $6 million dollars have been raised so far, and in 2011, 92 cents of each dollar raised was invested back into our community. Our signature program, Learning Is Cool, rewards academic excellence by recognizing students who attain the "A" Honor Roll. In the program's first three years in Cincinnati Public Schools, "A" Honor Roll achievements increased by 110%! We have awarded more than 45 scholarships since inception for a total of over $1.2 million. More information on the Fund is available at www.marvinlewis.org.
