The Fourth Annual event will take place on Thanksgiving morning on November 26, 2015. It will definitely be a race you won't want to miss.
Last year, nearly 2,950 people participated and we would like to break that participation record this year! Sign up and help us reach 3,500 people in the 5k and Street Mile races!
A "Run"down of what will occur:
Early morning start times so you and your whole family can get back home and still have the whole day to spend together.
The 5k starts at 9am with the Street Mile to follow at 10 am.
Like last year, all of the local breweries will be providing their signature craft brews. Our wonderful volunteers will be ready to hand you a nice, cold beer (or root beer for those under 21).
Like last year, our 5K course will be a runner friendly, one loop course.
Once again, pint glasses and t-shirts will be given to all participants!*
November in Billings can be cold but for a short period of time you can come participate in this family fun community event to help end hunger in the Billings area.
