You know Bill's Beer Run is the BEST race of the year?!! Why not become a sponsor! The Manasota Track Club is so grateful to its sponsors for all their support. This renowned 5 Mile Run was started in 1989 by MTC member Bill Menard as the sole fundraiser for our non-profit organization, and it continues to be a highlight of the running year for our community, selling out earlier and earlier each year. Your membership fees and the proceeds from BBR are the only means of fundraising the MTC does. Your generosity helps support not only local running programs and scholarships, but also helps maintain the vitality of the club.   If you'd like to become a sponsor, download a sponsorship form HERE.

The Pub Run Series is a special BBR race registration.  The Pub Run Series is limited to 100 participants.
Pub Series registration includes: BBR Race Registration and shirt;  Three (3) Fun Runs with post-run parties (with food and a drink);  A special Pub Run Series tee shirt

There is NO RACE DAY Packet Pick up. So make sure you pick up your packet at one of the pick up parties.

Your chipped bib will provide timing for the race, but your wrist band is your ticket to the beer. No Band, No Beer.

Arrive before 7:45a as roads will be closed. BBR is more fun with friends, so car pool! And make sure you have a designated driver ... Don't drink and drive.
