Hotter’N Ale 0.5K and Block Party

709 Indiana Ave. Wichita Falls, TX 76301 | 940-322-4525 | website

Every year over 10,000 professional and amateur cyclists descend upon Wichita Falls to compete in the Hotter’N Hell Hundred, one of the oldest and largest cycling events in the nation.

Endurance events not your thing, but still want to get in the Hotter’N Hell spirit? After the race, Downtown Wichita Falls transforms into a family-friendly block party with food trucks, craft beer, yard games, a DJed dance party and more. In addition to the race and block party, the Hotter N’ Ale attracts a more leisurely crowd that strolls in a 0.5k walk hitting some of the best nightlife spots with plenty of drinks and entertainment along each stop.

Join an odd group of outcasts and alcoholics as they take on an excruciating 0.5k and enjoy some adult beverages and food… runners are led by their “coaches” to local establishments in downtown Wichita Falls. Each location is offering a serving of food or spirit with registration. Must be 21+ to register.

Each year, the carefully-crafted theme of the event sets the tone for the walk. Last year’s theme was Camp Hotter N’ Ale. Campers wore their camp colors and reported to their designated camp counselors who led the way with rousing chants and songs to local eats, drinks, and games. During the event, campers enjoyed activities like giant cornhole and a retro dance party with DJ MF Maniac.

This year’s theme has yet to be announced. Follow Downtown WF Development to stay in the know and plan your costume early for this annually sold out event.

This event takes place in late August during the Hotter’N Hell weekend.
