The Oktoberfest Meiler Vier is the four-mile run that is fast becoming as much a part of the Columbus Oktoberfest as beir gardens and polka. The Meiler Vier will once again kick start the Oktoberfest celebration by taking runners and walkers through a four-mile tour of the Ohio Expo Center. The race will begin following the traditional tapping of the kegs and the singing of the U.S and German national anthems. Runners will again be serenaded at the start with Alpine Horns.
Afterwards, we will really get the party started, with each participant receiving a complimentary beer (Hofbrau, Paulaner, Bittburger or Brooklyn Oktoberfest) and a sausage courtesy of Schmidt’s Sausage Haus.
