    Willkommen to the Kolping Society of Cincinnati’s Inaugural Schützenfest 1K Bier Dash!!!

    You do not want to miss the ALL-NEW & ORIGINAL Schützenfest 1K Bier Dash fun run on July 19, as we combine tradition, sport, and naturally Beer!

    The 1K Bier Dash is an un-timed, non-competitive fun run, and is the newest addition to Schützenfest, America’s Longest Running German Fest - Seit 1866!

    The Bier Dash will start at 7:30 PM on Friday, July 19, following Schützenfest’s opening ceremonies and ceremonial Keg Tapping.

    Runners will wind through a scenic 1K course through Kolping’s Biergarten and beautiful woods to create a one-of-a-kind experience. Whether you run, walk, or crawl, your challenge is to quench your thirst at not 1, not 2, but 3 beer stations along the way.

    After completing the Bier Dash course, runners are awarded a delicious giant Servatii soft pretzel. As a special feature, a celebratory toast of fine German Schnaps with our Schützen König, Ted Hoerstmann, awaits you at the finish line!

    Runners are encouraged to come dressed in German attire, as prizes will be awarded to the male and female who runs wearing the most authentic German Tracht.

    Schützenfest is a fantastic family-friendly experience! When you’re not conquering our 1K Bier Dash course, you will want to explore and enjoy our outstanding lineup of authentic German food, refreshments, and entertainment. Schützenfest features an excellent array of German beers, as well as our famous SchützenApfel Riesling wine. Our entertainment lineup features musicians from Disney World’s Epcot Center, as well as local and regional artists.
