Race Overview

Given the unique circumstances this year, with a multi-site Bockfest Hall, we're moving the Bock Beer 5K race on Saturday, March 2nd to a new course location at The Banks. For more details regarding the 2024 Bockfest, visit their website here.


Bockfest is a uniquely Cincinnati event, celebrating the brewing of Bock Beer and the coming of spring. Bock Beer is traditionally brewed for special occasions. It is complex, hardy, traditionally has a higher nutritional content than most beer, and typically has a higher alcohol content. It has a particular link to spring because German monks drank it as a substitute for food during Lenten fasts.

Bockfest™ was created by the Hudepohl-Schoenling Brewing Company to celebrate the brewery’s introduction of Christian Moerlein Bock. The company eventually decided to make the launch of the bock beer into an entire festival.

All registered participants will receive a shirt, two drink tickets and a Skyline Chili Cheese Coney (must be redeemed at the Post Race Party). Bock Beer 5K finishers will receive a medal that doubles as a bottle opener!
