Leprechaun & Lederhosen .1K Beer Run Returns to Petrifying Springs Biergarten

Presented by Heating & Cooling Solutions

Kenosha, WI – January 16, 2018 – The ever popular Leprechaun & Lederhosen .1K Beer Run presented by Heating & Cooling Solutions will return to the Petrifying Springs Biergarten on Saturday, March 16th. Deemed the least athletic, most fun race ever, participants are encouraged to sign up to walk or run the grueling 100 meter course. Tickets are available now online at

Registration includes the .1K race, a t-shirt, a post-race green beer, a bumper sticker, a race bib and tons of St. Patty’s Day spirit. The Biergarten will open at 9am and the race will step off at 10am. Registration is limited to people 21 and over. Children may attend as spectators and are free. All proceeds will benefit the Boys & Girls Club of Kenosha.

In 2018, the race drew over 350 enthusiastic participants including Kenosha County Executive Jim Kreuser. “This is a fun event for a great cause,” said Kreuser. “Best of all, you don’t have to spend much time training. If you’ve made at least a few trips from the couch to the fridge and back this winter, you’re probably ready for a .1K race.”

The course will feature Irish decorations, fans cheering on runners with encouraging posters and a hydration station where participants can hydrate with Miller Lite. Boot mug awards will be given to those in first and last place. A heated tent will be available at the Biergarten courtesy of Heating & Cooling Solutions.

“The buzz surrounding the .1K has been awesome,” said Biergarten owner, Mike Grab. “Going in to the second year of the event, we’re going to build on that momentum and we hope to see even more participants at the Biergarten this March.”

Petrifying Springs Biergarten will be packed with St. Patrick’s Day entertainment beginning Friday evening and all day Saturday. On Friday, March 15th guests can enjoy live music by Hearthfire starting at 6pm. On Saturday, March 16th, The Grateful Deadliners will play from 11:30am – 1:30pm. The Cashel Dennehy School of Irish Dance will perform at 2pm, and later in the evening CJ Double DJ will play from 4 – 10pm.
