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! Hop Haus Brewing will be serving up drinks along with music in the Beer Garden!
Can I push a stroller or bring my pup?
Strollers are strongly ill-advised, as the course does utilize the Military Ridge Trail which is quite narrow at parts and is a trail, so there are rocks and sticks throughout. We strongly discourage strollers for these reasons for the safety of all participants and the kiddos. We love dogs- in fact we have 3 at home. However, the crowds of folks (who may or may not be as much of fans as we are) can be unpredictable and can startle a pup in an instant, or may not be paying attention and trip over a leash or Spot himself. Furry Friends are welcome at the finish line with a friend or family member outside of the crowd.
I don't 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 the event. Can I take his/her place?
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 stein, 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 Wisconsin 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.
