This weekend the city of Des Moines is celebrating Oktoberfest with a fun run.

Saturday afternoon will be the inaugural Brew Mile run, a mile-long Oktoberfest-themed run.  The Brew Miles is a fun run that you can walk, run or complete as a group or ‘brew crew’.

The run starts at 4 p.m. with awards at 5:30 p.m.  Prizes will be given to some of the fastest to finish the race, a few random finishers in the race and for the top costumes.  Festive German attire is encouraged for the Brew Mile run.

Registration for the Brew Mile is $25 for individuals or $20 per person if you register as a brew crew.  The registration fee for the race also covers the admission to Oktoberfest celebrations.
