Post Race Festivities?
Will there be a post race festival?
Definitely Yes! We will have a family oriented fun, games, and food festival featuring local foods, businesses, local bands, and activities. This will occur right ourside the Football Stadium at Midway Field. We also welcome all runners and families to visit the wonderful shops and historic sites of Shepherdstown, Harpers Ferry, and Sharpsburg. We will also host a beer garden festival- see next FAQ.
So Tell me About the Beer Garden
We will also host a beer garden festival at the world famous Bavarian Inn, the host of one the regions largest Oktoberfests, a 100 meter walk from the finish line. Yuengling Beer is a proud sponsor and will provide their signature beers. First beer will be free in our environmentally friendly mug of recycled materials. Use this for additional rehydration. The Bavarian Inn plays host to the regions largest Oktoberfest on Sept 20. They will save some of their famous Bratwurst and Struedel for Oct 3. Volunteers, family, and friends all welcome.
