Congratulations Beer Runners! View results: here





Join us on Saturday, September 17th 2022 at Mankato Brewery for the annual Beer Run 5k & .05k!

Feeling competitive and want to run/walk the 5K? Your race will be timed and you'll be able to meet the rest of the group for your post-race beer provided by the Mankato Brewery after the event! All fitness levels are welcome!

Does half a football field's length seem more up your alley? Then the Beer Run .05K is just for you! Run, walk, stroll or yog a hot 54 yards then head to the beer garden for your free post-race beer. Stay for the fun and cheer on your fellow 5K participants as they cross that finish line and catch the good times in the brewery.

Virtual Option Available! Not able to make race day? Register for the virtual event! Race your family, your dog, or your kid's remote control car across your own finish line. Couch to the fridge and back? Go for it. Log roll down a hill? Sounds like a blast. We're here to cheers your victory!

After the race, head over to Bier on Belgrade for more beer, tunes, and fun.
