Will you hydrate me?
One water station will be located about half way through the course as well as the Start and Finish Line. Then of course, you will receive a post race beer or soda courtesy of our official Beer Sponsor!
Can I buy more beer afterwards?
You sure can! Mankato Brewing will be serving up drinks along with music!
I dont run...can I walk?
Yes! There is a 30 minute/mile pace on the course. We ask that walkers move towards the back of the crowd at the starting line to allow for runners to keep their preferred pace.
My friend bailed on me...can I transfer a registration to someone else?
You may transfer your registration to a friend for a $5 fee up until 2 days before the event (plus any applicable processing fees from RunSignUp). You may do this from your account on runsignup.com. There are no refunds for this event.
What does my registration fee cover?
There is a lot involved in putting on a race. We use your registration fee to cover the cost of insurance, the timer, land, event apparel, beer glass, post race food/water and all the other little things that add up to make these events happen! Your registration does not cover the cost of beer as beer is not included as part of the registration and can be denied to any participant and any time, at the discretion of the beer provider. Best part is your dollars are staying local.
Can I get a refund or transfer?
There are no refunds for The Mankato Beer Run 5k/.05k. You may transfer your registration to a friend for a $5 fee up until 2 days before the event (plus any applicable processing fees from RunSignUp). You may do this from your account on runsignup.com.
