Once again, the Lakeland Rotary’s annual Rump Roast Run and Walk will be held the morning of the annual Beef-A-Rama Saturday, Sept. 28.
The Calf Mile kids’ race begins at 8:15 a.m., with the 5k and 10k races starting at 9 a.m.
Both the 5k and 10k courses begin just north of Minocqua Veterans Park. The course hugs the shore of beautiful Lake Minocqua as participants head to the north. Both courses give way to wooded lanes and lead eventually to the Bearskin Trail, a former railroad bed. There, the 5k course turns left and brings runners and walkers over the old trestle to the finish line. From there, 10k runners turn right and head down the Bearskin Trail before turning back to the trestle.
A children’s 1-mile race rounds out the events and an awards ceremony caps off the morning with plaques for the winners and a 16-18 pound beef roast for the top male and female finishers in the 5k and 10k.
The 5k and 10k adult fee is $30 online and $32 on race day.For 5k and 10k student participants who are 18 and under:, registration is$20 online or $22 on race day. The childrens’ Calf Mile is $12 online or $14 on race day.
