A 4K Complete with Beer, Costumes, and Fun
Outrageous costumes, beer chugging and foot racing will reign supreme as the Tap ‘N’ Run 4K makes its inaugural Tap in Oklahoma City on Saturday, August 10th, at 2 p.m.
Tap ‘N’ Run 4K combines participants’ love of beer and running for a unique “one of a kind” run/walk race totaling 2.4 miles starting and ending at Remington Park. Participants are encouraged to dress in costumes and run with teams, friends and family of legal drinking age. A portion of the proceeds will also benefit the local charity, Best Friends of Pets.
Operated by Louisville, KY-based JAM Active, Tap ‘N’ Run encourages participants to run, jog, walk, hop, skip or crawl to three different “chug stations” along the course. The “chug stations” will have participants chugging a four-ounce sample of beer before continuing along the race route. At the finish line, participants will receive a full beer and the chance to win one of many awards (including Best Mustache, Best Belcher, Most Original Team Concept, among others) at the After Party.
“The allure of the event, some say, is the uniqueness of being able to drink mid-run. Other races have beer at the end, but Tap ‘N’ Run provides it right along the race route,” said Matt Roberts, JAM Active Executive Director. “It’s a ridiculously good time with friends, family, costumes, teams and of course, beer.
”In addition to being a part of a unique racing experience, all participants will receive a finisher’s medal that doubles as a bottle opener as well as a Tap ‘N’ Run t-shirt to commemorate the crazy day.
“We are looking forward to having a blast with folks in OKC,” said Roberts. “And, as always, we encourage participants to ha ve fun, yet drink responsibly. Either schedule a designated driver after the race or a JAM Active staff member can assist you in getting home safely.”
