The Race is ON! *


We want to get back up and running, don’t you?  Here’s how we do it, safely.  First, we give it a little time.  Our original race date in April has been postponed to August 1. Then, we give it a little space.  By stretching out start times, we’ll have smaller groups of runners on the course.  At the finish line, you will pick up your swag and grab a can of beer and an individually-wrapped bagel. Stay as long as you are comfortable and enjoy music and the party while keeping social distance.  Almost like the good ol’ days!


*Subject to ordinances, restrictions and public safety advisories prevailing at the scheduled day of event.

The Course

Beer & Bagel Off Road Run is 4-ish miles of off road running over challenging terrain forget the crazy antics & insane price tags. At Beer & Bagel we let Mother Nature do the talking: Rugged and untamed trails the way running was meant to be.  After conquering mother nature at her best, you'll be greeted with an ice cold beer, bagels and a good home cookin' just like mom used to make. And forget about bringing money on race day, everything is included. No paid parking, no paying for food at the finish, and we NEVER run out of water!


The Venue

Beer & Bagel Iowa is hosted at beautiful Jester Park in Granger, with rolling hills and views of Saylorville Lake. Click the map to get your driving directions.  You'll find us at Shelter #2



Remember, no two courses are the same, so comparing times from year to year is like comparing Sasquatch to a Yeti. You just don't do it!
