We are sorry to announce the Last Best Beer Run and 5k is cancelled for 2021. As many of you may know, myself (the race director) and my wife (assistant race director) have been with our daughter in Seattle at the Children’s Hospital since the beginning of 2021. We went ahead with the planning of the event assuming we’d be back home in Montana well before now. It has become apparent that we will not be back in Montana for many more months, and with that we will not be able to put on this event.

We will be giving 100% refunds to all registrants who registered this year or deferred from 2020. Refunds will be processed automatically over the next week. Planning has started for 2022, and everyone that registered in 2020 or 2021 will get a discount code too.

Thank you for registering for this event and we look forward to seeing you enjoy the run and the best breweries in Montana next year!


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.
