Fifty West Brewing Company returns ‘Pool Run’ in partnership with Ziegler Park and Fleet Feet Cincinnati

CINCINNATI, Ohio – Fifty West Brewing Company is proud to announce details for its third Pool Run. The event is scheduled for Saturday, August 13, 2022 from 6-10 p.m. at Ziegler Park in Over The Rhine.

The 50W Pool Run is a 5K “fun run” through the streets of Over-The-Rhine, ending with a fully clothed finish line in the Ziegler Park pool. Fifty West Vice President Max Fram recently said, “The idea came to me as I was jumping in the shower after an intense summer run. As soon as the cold water hit the top of my head, all I could think about was how fun and invigorating it would be to finish a race straight into a pool.

Fifty West naturally pitched this crazy idea to their friends at 3CDC, who operate Ziegler Park Pool, who all quickly joined in. “Fifty West has been a great partner over the years, so when Max called and pitched this idea, we were all ears. Ziegler Park Pool has been a great resource in bringing the community together and this activation will be a fun and creative showcase of our mission,” says Sara Portman of 3CDC.

Pool Run participants can arrive at Ziegler Park from 6 p.m. on the 13th to check in and secure any items they do not wish to get wet. The 3.2-mile race will begin at 7:00 p.m. sharp, departing and returning to Ziegler Park for runners to cross the finish line in the pool. An event photographer will capture the “best moves” of participants as they dive into the water. The private pool party will immediately follow the race until 10:00 p.m. where participants can enjoy a 50W beer with a pizza provided. Additionally, the first 100 runners to register will also receive a free Fleet Feet branded towel.

Fifty West’s signature events exemplify their dedication to an active and balanced lifestyle. Their campus, located in Columbia Township, includes a full-service cycling store, the Fleet Feet at Fifty West running store, four volleyball courts, pickleball courts, marathon training groups, and a access to the river and the Little Miami Scenic trail.
