The Lakeland Rotary’s 14th Annual Rump Roast Run 2017 is held the morning of the annual Beef-A-Rama Saturday, September 30, in beautiful, Minocqua WI. Both the 5k and 10k courses begin just north of the Minocqua Veterans Park. The course hugs the shore of beautiful Lake Minocqua as participants head to the north. Both courses give way to wooded lanes and lead eventually to the Bearskin Trail, a former railroad bed. There, the 5k course turns left and brings runners & walkers over the old trestle to the finish line. 10k runners turn right and head down the Bearskin Trail before turning back to the trestle. 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 16 – 18 lb beef roasts for the top male and female finishers in the 5K and 10K.
Register online without incurring additional online fee charges! Online registrations will be open until midnight Wednesday, Sept 27.
After the race, stay and enjoy Beef-A-Rama one of Wisconsin’s wackier food festivals, including the Parade of Beef. Take your bib to the Rotary Beer Garden and receive a free beverage after the race.
Calf Mile kids race begins at 8:15. 5K & 10K race starts at 9:00 with a Gun Start.

The road closes at 7 am for down town. If they come prior to that they can park in the Campanile parking lot only. Buses are running from 6 am on from the Lakeland Union High School parking lot (I am currently checking for those that are coming from the south of town). Please watch the Rump Roast Run Facebook page and download the Beef a Rama app to your phone to be kept updated on everything. Also, remember that we strongly encourage that races come pick up their shirts and bibs on Friday night at the Legion. And that the race starts promptly at 9.
