The Coveted Race Shirt
Let's be honest for a minute. You really only do the race for three things: the course, the free food & drink, and a good race shirt. We cover ALL THREE of those for you with great race course that only Mother Nature could have dreamed up, beer, bagels & home cookin', and our coveted "I'm a Drinker with a Running Problem!" race shirts!

We also offer a non-alcoholic version for the shirt: "I'm a Root beer Drinker with a Running Problem!"

As always, our shirts are high-quality, long-sleeve tech fabric shirts. Sizing is XXS-XL Unisex, with XXL also available for an additional charge.

If you register within two weeks of the race date, your shirt may not be available in the requested size subject to availability at check in.

The Course
Beer & Bagel Off Road Run is roughly 4 miles of off road running over challenging terrain.

Forget the crazy antics, insane price tags, colored powders, glow sticks, smelly mud, or man-made obstacles. At Beer & Bagel we let Mother Nature do the work: Rugged and untamed trails, the way running was meant to be. You might get wet, you might get muddy, but one thing is for sure: You're going to have a blast!

After conquering Mother Nature at her best, you'll be greeted with an ice cold beer, bagels and a warm bowl of chili, just like mom used to make. And leave your cash at home on race day. Everything is included. No paid parking, no paying for food at the finish, and we NEVER run out of water!

Beer & Bagel Minnesota will be hosted at Mount Kato Ski Area. Expect to be challenged.
