5th Annual OTR 5K This Saturday

The 5th Annual OTR 5K runs this Saturday, May 21st at 10:00 am. You have until midnight tonight (May 17th) to register online. Winners in a number of categories will receive a medal designed by Rookwood Pottery. Unfortunately since they have no Clydesdale, or Super-Clydesdale class there is no hope for me to score a medal. Who am I kidding, even with those classifications I would likely be out of luck.

The fun starts at 12th and Vine and includes runs down parts of Main, Liberty, Central Parkway and other OTR streets. You can check the map on Runkeeper.

I'm not sure where music will be set up, but they promise:
  • Cincy Brass
  • The Hiders
  • Faux Frenchmen
  • Comet Bluegrass Allstars
  • The Cliftones
There will also be more than 30 vendors and artists including the following food vendors:
  • Dojo GelatoGelato!!
  • Sweet Peace Bakery – Vegan Baked Goods
  • Cafe de Wheels – Burgers, Fries, & Cubans
  • Joe’s Diner on Sycamore – Smoothies, White Chicken Chili, Burgers
  • Enzo’s OTRPanini Sandwiches, tea, lemonade, baked goods
  • Chili Rocks Spicy Delights – Geotta Coneys, BMT Coneys, Coneys and Chilies
  • Mr. Gene’s Dog House – Hotdogs, fries, onion rings, wings, hot met
  • Taco Azul - Tacos from a truck! Authentic Mexican street food
  • Christian Moerlein Beer
Should be a blast. I am "running" (my running nickname would be Molasses... I run slow all the time, and not at all when it is cold) and look forward to the event.

Be sure to check out the details on the GoOTR.org site.

Dang, I'll be out of town -- but have a great "run," Mike! Wish I could be there to cheer you on.

This post was mine (Bryan's) not Mike's. I don't want to unintentionally impugn his running ability!

Have a Great 5K! The Taco Azul sounds like a winner.

I was going to run but a bad ankle put the kibosh on that. So I signed up to volunteer instead!

(fyi, I think they could use a few more volunteers so if anyone wants to help, visit the event site to sign up)

You have to beat Mike's kid Brian :-D
And this time I'll hang around the finish line until you cross. Pinky promise.

Also, some kids will be doing their annual lemonade stand this year with ...thetherball.

Also, on the same morning, a block away, Nast Trinity, will be hosting Dribblethon.
