Register for the 2021 Stein Dash

5Ks are fun. Beer is fun. 5Ks & Beer are typically not a natural pairing….typically. However, on Sunday, October 10th, the best of both worlds collide for the second annual STEIN DASH – and this year will again be EXCITING, for sure! (How you ask? Keep reading…).

So, here’s the plan. You and your bestest friends are going to meet us at the start line Sunday morning. You’re going to wander over to packet pickup where you will receive a pretty sweet Commemorative Stein, an awesome event shirt, a bib number, and a high-five. Then we shoot off our gun and you get running.

3.1 miles is no marathon but it still requires a pit stop (or three) and honestly water at on-course stops are a thing of the past. Grab your Stein, fill it up with a different beer at each of our three Beer Zones and chug, sip, sample, taste, pound – however you want to do it – just drink that beer and get back on the course because the clock still runs as you drink.

We are all going to be super proud of you when you finish the race, so we’d like to celebrate with a free entry into Oktoberfest! All you have to do is keep walking….the Finish Line is going to aim you right into the amazing Festhalle at Oktoberfest NW. The rest of the day is yours to enjoy. The beer will be flowing, there’s football on TVs, huge selection of awesome beer, food, WEINER DOG RACES, and of course… MORE BEER.

Returning This Year – The Kids Root Beer Run! Now there’s a race for the under 21s! Kids 10 and under can register now for the Root Beer Run. A 1/2 Mile Kids Run with the same premise as the adults. Run, Chug Run! At the halfway mark, kids will be greeted with a root beer to chug before racing to the finish line. All registered kids will receive an awesome kids root beer run shirt, stein, and root beer inside Oktoberfest!

There isn’t a lot more to tell you about – so just go ahead and click that “register” button at the top of the page and get signed up before we sell out

For 2021 - We've added start times as an option for Stein Dash participants. To allow beer stop volunteers a better opportunity to keep the beer flowing, we're asking participants to select a starting corral. Choices will be 10:00am, 10:20am, 10:40am - select your start time, tell your friends and get ready to Stein Dash!

ALL participants will receive:
  • A Sweet Stein Dash Race Shirt
  • A Commemorative Tasting Stein
  • 3 On Course Beer Stops
  • Free Entry Into Oktoberfest
    • This year, a post-run beer is NOT included, but we'll hook you up on course

COVID-19 Safety Protocols
Ok - so, we weren't wanting to add this to our website, but because this virus just won't go away, it looks like we're going to have to implement some "rules" to keep you safe and healthy while running. Bear with us and help us out.

Masks - Yep, because this event is over 500 people, the state is mandating masks. So please wear them. We don't like them either, but they're the rules. Just a reminder, you'll have to wear it while INSIDE at Oktoberfest after the race anyways, so bring it with you, wear it for us and have a good time.

When do you need to wear your mask, during these times:

  • During Packet Pickup (and anytime around volunteers)
  • Prior to Your Race Start (think big crowds, wear it then please)
  • When collecting your beer at all 3 beer stops (wear it while grabbing beer, once in the beer garden area, feel free to pull it down and drink up!)
  • After You Finish, once you cross that finish line, pull it up while around volunteers... Thank!
  • Reminder - Oktoberfest NW will require you to mask up inside their event, so bring it with 
Social Distancing - This race will still have all the fun elements we've had in the past, mass race start, big on course beer stops and more, but help us out and stay spread out when you can. We will be starting the "Race" in multiple waves this year, in fact, you chose when you'd like to run, 10:00am, 10:20am or 10:40am. This is to not only help keep participants spread out but it's to help your trip through those beer stops be smoother. 

Any questions? Shoot us an email, we'll make sure to get you answers and promise you'll still have a blast!
