Welcome to the 2022 Beer Garden 5K Series! We've worked hard to reimagine the Beer Garden 5K race series, but don't worry, the core idea remains the same - a little running (or walking), a little beer, a whole lot of fun!
New for 2022! Custom, hand-made, finisher woodles for all 5K participants, provided by our friends at Ridgeway Woodworks. What's a Woodle? It's a wooden medal. What makes these cool is that they are 100% made in America and made from reclaimed wood! And these woodles from Ridgeway are extra cool because they have a beer bottle opener in it!
This registration is for the four race series. If you would like to register for individual races, please go to the individual race registration sites listed below:
The Explorium Brewpub Beer Garden 5K - Thursday, June 9 @ Lake Vista Park (Oak Creek)
Menomonee Falls Beer Garden 5K - Wednesday, June 29 @ Village Park (Menomonee Falls)
The Tap Yard Beer Garden 5K - Thursday, July 21 @ The Tap Yard (Waukesha)

Kids can run the Kids' 1K for free. Please register them for the individual races using the links above.
There are 4 races in the 2022 series. Can't make all four races? No worries, you can always transfer your bib to a friend for FREE!
For more detailed course descriptions, please visit the individual event pages.
All 5K participants will receive a custom finisher Woodle made by our friends at Ridgeway Woodworks. The Woodles include a bottle opener in the back, and are made in America from 100% reclaimed wood.
The overall male and female finisher at each race will receive a custom award from Ridgeway Woodworks.
Top 3 male and female finishers in each age group will receive a custom award medal. Age groups are 0-14, then 5-year increments.
Runners who register for the series after May 27 will not be guaranteed a race shirt for the first beer garden race and they will be available while supplies last (sorry, we have to get our T-shirt order in), but please be sure to select a shirt because we can get you one for all the other races!
All series runners will receive a race shirt for each race.
Please check individual races for any time changes.
