Rump Roast Run on Sept. 28
August 16, 2019
The Lakeland Rotary’s 16th annual Rump Roast Run 2019 is held the morning of the annual Beef-A-Rama on Saturday, Sept. 28, in Minocqua. Both the 5K and 10K courses begin just north of the 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. 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 cow bells for the winners and a 16-18 pound beef roasts for the top male and female finishers in the 5K and 10K.
Register online without incurring additional online fee charges. Online registrations will be open until midnight Wednesday, Sept 25. Adult 5K and 10K racers are $35, and students are $25. Participants in the Calf Mile (12 and under) are $15.
Calf Mile kids race begins at 8:15 a.m., while the 5K and 10K race starts at 9 a.m. with a Gun Start. Registration and Packet Pick-up American Legion building across from the Minocqua Post Office on Friday night from 5 to 8 p.m., or Saturday morning: 7 until 8:45 a.m.
After the race, stay and enjoy Beef-A-Rama, one of Wisconsin’s wackier food festivals, including the Parade of Beef. Participants can take their bib to the Rotary Beer Garden and receive a free beverage after the race.
