Thank you for finding us! The MN Beer Run hopes to continue in 2018.
Stay tuned for details. Cheers!


We listened to your post-race feedback! We have improved and changed the route so there will be no crossing. We have the parking lot on 8th and Sibley so we will have a larger area to operate in.We are adding a large tent in the case of bad weather. Southside Band will play before and after the race!

Gather your friends and get your running shoes on, the 2nd Annual Minnesota Beer Run 5K will take place in Northeast Minneapolis October 1st! We are working on upgraded shirts and swag! Of course, 2 ice cold Goose Island beers will be included! We will have more prizes to award!
