Beer & Bagel Off Road Run is 4-ish miles of off-road running over challenging terrain. Forget about the crazy antics and man-made obstacles. 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 Course

Beer & Bagel Minnesota is hosted at Mount Kato. Under all the great ski runs hide some awesome single-track trails that wind their way to the top, through the trees to the top and back down. Who knew? Rumor has it Sasquatch hides here too! Anyway, now you know where to find us. Click the map to get your driving directions.

The Venue


We'll post results soon after the race and celebrate the leaders in each age category.
