As important as our great participants, we won't have a race without AWESOME VOLUNTEERS! We'll need all the help we can get to help with set up/ tear down, packet pickup, directing runners, manning shuttles, handing out water at aid stations, and various other simple, but necessary tasks. As a volunteer, you get all the same schwag as runners and you won't be as tired afterwards! Click HERE to sign up!
Are you signed up to race? Then you're signed up to participate, if you're tough enough, in the Dam Backpocket Run Stein Holding Contest! Hold a 1 liter stein full of beer perpendicular to your shoulder, for AS LONG AS YOU CAN! The winner receives a GIANT gift basket courtesy of Backpocket Brewing!

Let's be honest. Some of us are here for a fun run with great beer at the end. Do we have just the thing for you. The Backpocket 5K! Start at Waterworks Prairie Park and follow the bike path past the dog park and across the river to Backpocket.
Each runner will get a commemorative beer glass from Backpocket, and a beer to fill it. If you're a runner who's not of age or don't care for a beer, no worries, we'll have plenty of options for you!
Backpocket Brewing will also have food for purchase so tell friends and family who aren't running to come and join us for mega fun times! Festivites, food, and beer - it's a can't miss!
