At around 5 p.m. on August 25, teams of up to four take off running, walking, or doing the worm through downtown Columbus, fueling up with sudsy samples at four beer-chug stations along the way. Racers can wear costumes, if they desire, and compete for awards such as Best (real or fake) 'Stache or Most Original Team Concept. Upon finishing the race, athletes receive a full beer, a commemorative T-shirt, and a finisher's medal. Award winners are announced during the after party at Park Street Patio, which features live music.
Tap 'N' Run 4k
Participants in Jam Active's Tap 'N' Run 4k—which takes place throughout the country—may find that their biggest challenge is not completing the race's approximately 2.5-mile stretch, but keeping a straight face along the way. Throughout the run, racers sip samples of beer at chug stations while doing their best to not spill on their costumes in an effort to win awards such as We Wear Short Shorts or Hot Mess. At the finish line, team members raise a full beer to toast their real or pretend victory, collect a T-shirt, and scoop up a finisher's medal that can double as a bottle opener and a way to impress prospective employers.
