The Lakeland Rotary's Annual Rump Roast Run in beautiful, Minocqua WI goes back to our roots so to speak...both the 5k and 10k courses will begin again in downtown Minocqua and finish at the trestle at the entrance to the Bearskin State Trail. The course hugs the shore of beautiful Lake Minocqua and both courses give way to wooded lanes that lead eventually to the Bearskin Trail. A children's 1-mile race rounds out the events and an awards ceremony caps off the morning with cow bells for the winners and a large beef roast(s) for the top male and female finishers in each race. After the race, stay and enjoy Beef-A-Rama one of Wisconsin's wackier food festivals, including merchants roasting beef, beer gardens, and live bands. Take your bib to the Rotary Beer Garden and receive a free beverage after the race. (Must be 21 or older to redeem for an alcoholic beverage.)
