The race happens on Saturday, October 25, the first day of the Beaches Octoberfest event. In addition to entry in the race, participants also get everything they need to enjoy the festivities that day, including a stein, beer passport, and a beer.
Beaches Oktoberfest combines Jacksonville's beach views with a drinking tour of Germany—one that even includes a (fake) passport. Travelers each receive a passport upon arrival, and get a stamp when they visit—and try regional beers from—each of the four major German cities: Hamburg, Berlin, Munich, and Frankfurt.
Visits, of course, are symbolic. Instead of setting foot on German turf, participants travel with their taste buds, sampling beers to the tune of live polka. And for food to go with their brews, they simply stop by the onsite food truck village, rather than hoping someone will pass them a beer mug made of steak. The two-day event also includes a 5K Chug N' Run race and a special fun area meant for kids.
