Toast your fellow craft beer-lovin' runners to this 5K around Sleepy Eye Lake as we kick-off our town's summer festival at the park!
Participants will receive a unique finisher's medal shaped like our brewery's tap handle plates, a commemorative Kolsch glass, a sweet race shirt and (for those 21 and older) post-race helpings of our Crazy Aunt Kolsch -- a light, crisp, refreshing beer perfect for celebrating and/or embellishing your accomplishment. For those wishing to pass on the beer, enjoy a delicious cold-brew coffee from Sleepy Eye Coffee Co.
After the 5K, cheer on the kids in the 1/4-mile 1919 Root Beer Run. Kids run participants will receive a 1919 finisher's medal and root beer floats after their run around Allison Park.
Early packet pick-up is Aug. 18-19 at The Pix Theater -- home to Sleepy Eye Brewing Co. and Sleepy Eye Coffee Co. -- at 121 Main St. W in downtown Sleepy Eye. Participants must pick up their commemorative kolsch glass at the brewery, either during the early packet pick-up period on Aug. 18-19, or following the race. No glassware is allowed in Allison Park. Adult participants 21+ should bring their ID to the race to show proof of legal drinking age.
