The 2020 Last Best Beer Run is Cancelled

Due to Covid19 concerns and the changes we'd have to make to put this event on, we have decided to cancel the 2020 Last Best Beer Run.  We were really hoping that by postponing the event a few months that we could continue with little change and a lot of precaution.  However, with Covid19 still raging on, the event would look totally different (including not hosting the brewfest-style after party).  We will be back in 2021 with all the running, beer, and fun you can imagine!

We are providing three options for registrants:

1) Transfer your registration to 2021 (purchases will be transferred as well)

2) Let us keep your registration fee, and we'll send you one of the Official Last Best Beer Run hats! (We'll also throw in a 25% discount code for your 2021 race entry)

3) Get a 75% refund back from your 2020 registration fee, and receive a 25% discount code for your 2021 race entry!

Refunds, hats and codes will be sent out around the beginning of August.  You have until 7/31/2020 at midnight to submit your decision or you will be automatically rolled over into 2021.

Here Are Your Options:

We will transfer your registration to the 2021 Event Date (5/15/2021), and look forward to having you join us. Thanks for your patience!

You understand that events are expensive, even when cancelled, and you want us to keep your registration fees to help cover our costs. We deeply appreciate your generosity and look forward to seeing you at an event soon.  We have already received hats, and we'll send you one if you check this option.  You'll also get a coupon code for 25% off your registration fee in 2021.

We understand. We hope you can join us in 2021!

If you register by JULY 31st, you will be guaranteed your shirt size.


5k Run: No beer, all run.  This will be the first wave that starts right at 10:00am.  Run past all the beer stations and get to the finish line without stopping!  Don't worry, you're race entry still gets you into the after party if you are over 21!

Beer Run: Same course as 5k Run. This will be run in multiple waves! Starting with an "Elite Wave" at 10:05am.  You'll drink between 8 and 10 4 ounce pours of beer along the way.  Water will be available at each beer station, and bathrooms will be available near the halfway mark!

The 5k Run will only have 1 Overall Award Per Gender.  The Beer Run will have overall awards and 3 age groups: 21-39, 40-59, 60+.

Costume Contest:  There will also be a costume contest! Come in your best Tropical themed costume for a chance to win a prize! (After the weather at last year's Last Best Beer Run, I know we are all dreaming of a tropical beer run; don't worry, the beer will still be ice cold)! 

Family and friends and anyone else can purchase a "ticket" into the after party/brew fest (this is included in the price of the 5k and Beer Run).  There will be live music, food trucks and beer!  With all that, this is guaranteed to be better than those late night college beer runs you went on to get some 30 racks of Rolling Rock and PBR!

Food Trucks:

A portion of the proceeds will be going to keeping the Billings Craft Beer Week going each year and also to Spare Change For Real Change, with an emphasis on help for addictions.
