Beer Garden 5K Series


There will be a Kids 1K run (under 10) 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!


Parking is available at The Shoppes at Fox River.

The Tap Yard is located across the parking lot from the race Start/Finish line.


5:30 Packet Pickup
6:30 Race Start

This is a wave start. Waves are comprised of 10 runners. We will have 10 rows of 10 cones, spaced 10’ apart. You can self-select which wave you would like to run in by standing next to a cone facing the start line. We suggest faster runners in the earlier waves, and request you do not self-select your wave until 6:20.

The announcer will release one wave every thirty seconds starting at 6:30pm. Your time will not start until you cross the start mats. We encourage each wave of runners to self-distance as you approach the start mats. Once the announcer releases the wave, you should start running.

While this isn't necessarily a traditional "park", there is still plenty of space available, so please maintain 10' of distance at all times.


Event T-Shirt featuring The Tap Yard logo (opt out of the t-shirt during registration to save $5)

Finish Line Beer - just like a Finisher medal, but WAY more delicious! Participants will receive one Squatch Bucks coupon at the finish line that they will exchange for one free post-race beer from The Tap Yard Beer Garden. You are, of course, welcome, and encouraged, to purchase additional beverages once you have redeemed your Squatch Bucks. 


*NEW* Overall male and female at each race win a custom bottle opening wooden coaster from Ridgeway Woodworks and a $25 Gift Card to Performance Running Outfitters!

Age group medals featuring The Tap Yard logo!


“What’s up with the Squatch Bucks?” 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 2021 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 Squatch Bucks coupon. 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)

I want to run, but beer's not my thing. Is this event worth it?


We haven’t forgotten that beer might not be every runner’s cup of… beer. That's why we're excited to welcome Wisconsin-made Jolly Good soda to the Beer Garden 5K Series as our official non-alcoholic beverage sponsor! If beer isn’t your thing, or if you want to bring the family, there will be an ice-cold Jolly Good soda waiting for your free Squatch Bucks beverage coupon at the finish line - come run (or walk) with us!
