But in order to accommodate the good time at the Tap 'N' Run 4K, motorists will have to endure a temporary traffic headache.
The 2.4-mile race will be held on the afternoon of Saturday, June 14 in downtown Cincinnati. It's scheduled to begin just after 1:30 p.m. and end at about 4 p.m.
The cost to participate is $55, but it comes with event-centric swag including a T-shirt, sunglasses and a medal for completing the race. Fittingly, the medal doubles as a bottle opener.
Runners/walkers have the option to down a little liquid courage at three chugging stations set up along the course. They'll also get a 12-ounce beer at the end of the race to celebrate their feat.
Just a reminder: Even if they don't plan to take part in the drinking activities, which aren't mandatory, participants must be 21 years or older.
Make sure to remember your ID.
Because of the event, the several streets will close at 1:30 p.m. Saturday and remain shut down until approximately 4 p.m. They include:
