A little running (or walking) in an amazing city. You'll start at Village Park in Menomonee Falls, and then cruise through Lime Kiln Park along the Menomonee River before turning and heading back to the start/finish line. Follow your race with a little beer and a whole lot of fun! 

This registration is for the Menomonee Falls Beer Garden 5K at Village Park on Wednesday, June 19, 2024 only. If you would like to register for the entire Beer Garden 5K Series, please go to the series registration site: Beer Garden 5K Series


The race starts and finishes in front of the brand new Amphitheater in Village Park. This is an out and back course through Lime Kiln Park.

The walk division is a timed event. It is not a competitive event and there are no awards for the walk division. Walkers will receive a finisher woodle!

We have returned to mass starts! If you'd prefer to continue social distancing, you are welcome to distance from those toeing the line and may start your race when you are comfortable. The start line will remain open for about 10 minutes.


We are excited to once again partner with the Menomonee Falls Beer Garden for this beer garden run. Participants will receive one free beer from the Menomonee Falls Beer Garden after the race. Additional beer is available for purchase.

Water, gatorade, and freeze pops for the kids will also be available at the finish line. 


All participants who register for the race by Monday, June 3 will be guaranteed a race t-shirt. After that, t-shirt sizes and quantities will be limited. Have too many race shirts? No problem, you can opt out of a t-shirt at registration and save $5!


We know how much you love a freezer pop at the finish, so we are bringing them back! All finishers will receive a freezer pop!


Finisher Woodles

All participants will receive a custom finisher Woodle made by our friends at Ridgeway Woodworks. The Woodles are made in America from 100% reclaimed wood.

Overall Awards

The overall male and female finisher at each race will receive a custom award from Ridgeway Woodworks. 

Age Group Awards

Top 3 male and female finishers in each age group will receive a custom woodle. Age groups are 0-14, then 5-year increments. 


There will be a Kids 1K run (under 12) where all kids will get a bib just like Mom & Dad. The race is FREE for the kiddos if Mom or Dad is registered and you can register them online at no charge. Sorry, no shirts for the kids, but they do get a finisher medal!


The Average Joe & Jane Awards are back for the Beer Garden Series, and are presented to the male and female runner who finished in the exact middle of all runners. Winners will receive a t-shirt and custom woodle! 


“What’s up with the Squatch?” Good question! If you aren’t familiar, Squatch is the unofficial Silver Circle mascot and he’s a bit of a legend around Oconomowoc, which just so happens to be Silver Circle Global HQ.

We’ve decided to play a game with Squatch at the 2024 Beer Garden 5K Series! 

We’ll be hiding 2 small wooden sasquatches from Ridgeway Woodworks (much like the ones pictured below) along the race course – they will NOT be out in the open – it’s Squatch, after all. IF you manage to spot one while you’re out on the course and decide to sacrifice your potential PR to return Squatch to the finish line with you, you will be rewarded with a BONUS beer. That’s right – TWO free beers! So, are you here for the win and the glory, or are you here for the beer… and, of course, the glory?

Oh, we almost forgot to mention: you'll get to keep Squatch, too! (#WheresSquatch)


Parking is available at Village Park, Lime Kiln Park, and throughout the surrounding downtown area. You may NOT park in any areas marked in RED on the map below. Mill Street is also closed to vehicle traffic before and during the event.

Think you and your friends are the fastest beer runners on the planet? Prove it! The team challenge is back for 2024.

 How it works:

Create a team during registration! Invite your family, friends coworkers, and that super fast 21-year-old that lives down the street. The more, the merrier, and the better your chances!
The team with the 4 fastest runners gets an extra beer and an awesome trophy! The more runners you have, the better your chances. 

We will be using age grading for the team challenge. Don't worry about the math. Our timing software will calculate it. If you really want to know everthing there ever was about age grading, here is an article by timing legend Alan Jones.


Workplace Wellness Program Partnerships

Are you involved with a workplace wellness program? We’d love to help!

Here’s how it works:
