2014 Lederhosen Lauf Three Mile Run at Tulsa’s Oktoberfest

Tulsa’s Oktoberfest is going on this week. I found out Thursday morning that they were having a three mile run, the Lederhosen Lauf Run that night from the Oktoberfest site including a “Non-official” beer stop along with a one liter stein and a free beer afterward. So I had to go sign up is what I think.


And of course my I brought my special “Fraulein Cam” along.


The Fraulein Cam can take other shots as well.

I took this Ferrris Wheel pic  with my phone, not my special Fraulein Cam.


So how come some Frauleins have white socks and others have black. Figuring out things like that can lock my brain up for days.


And your typical shots of people milling around before the race. And it turns out that there are more Frauleins to the right. How come I never see them at any other races? And then we were off right at 7 pm.


Here is the Unofficial Beer Stop at about mile 2.25 or so. No beer for you said the beer nazi’s if you didn’t have a white wrist band. I’m not sure it was enforced. I’m a rule follower so you can bet that I had my white wrist band.


And we had a little unofficial music to go with our unofficial beer at the unofficial beer stop.


I finished the race, vertically with dignity. Got my token for my beer and a one liter stein and went to the beer tent. They had an incredible variety of beer there. The token just got me a pint instead of a liter. I was okay with the pint. A liter seemed a bit much and you know I have this thing about cleaning brand new glassware before drinking from it.


There are a bunch of large tents with different bands in each. It is all very cool.


In this tent they were having the most enthusiastic chicken dance session that I’ve ever seen.


Outside the tent, it was pretty much what you see at your local state fair.

I was all instrumented up for the race (after all you wouldn’t take a Ferrari racing with instruments right?) so you can see just painfully slow that I ran the race. It was fun though. Like I said I finished vertically which was my goal.

So, do you have an Oktoberfest where you live? Do you have a Fraulein Cam? I want to hear about it!

    That looked like a whole lot of fun and the beer must have tasted great after the run. Great photos! Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend.

    I always like the race posts. I like the people (fraulein!) watching you do. Also, the beer seems like such a just reward. I love that ferris wheel shot!

    I bet your Fraulein cam is the same one that takes pictures of the girls waving encouraging signs at a different race you told us about! Or maybe you are a specialist and have a different one for each?

    Looks like a heck of a lot of fun. The best-known OctoberFest in Oregon is held in September . I don’t know if they want to get a jump on everybody else or what. (I suspect it has to do with the fact that it often rains here by October.)

    Looks like quite the Octoberfest! I’m glad there was beer involved, it’s always good to have a purpose for the run. By the way, will there be beer at the Tulsa Run next week?
