The beers will be flowing, the music will be jumpin', and the folks will be running and walking through the finish on their way to victory. Then, head on over to Central Business District of Historical and Unique Beautiful Lower North Mankato for the 6th annual Bier On Belgrade!

Strollers are strongly ill-advised, as the course does utilize the trails 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. If you do use a stroller, you must start towards the back. Dogs are not allowed. Wheelchairs ARE allowed. View more info, including course map, at our website at!
