Mushing for Meals 5k/10k

Beloit, WI

JOIN US for your first race of the spring. How many other races are led off by a real sled dog mushing team?! Run individually or form your own mushing team of three runners. This is a great way to get your 2019 running season started. Whether you are an elite athlete, a fun runner, or just looking for a challenging walk, Mushing for Meals is all three. Proceeds from the event benefit Beloit Meals on Wheels.

Mushing for Meals is a 10K run and 5K run/walk, presented by KERRY and REGAL, to benefit Beloit Meals On Wheels. This scenic course begins at historic Horace White Park, picks up the Steve Gregg Memorial Path on the Rock River, past Beloit College and around the lagoon at Riverside Park and back. The 10K continues north past the lagoon, over the Ken Hendricks Memorial Bridge, then behind Beloit Memorial High School.  It is a very flat and fast course.

Mushing Teams:  Participants in the 5K can compete as a "Mushing Team". To compete as a team you must have three participants physically attached, SINGLE FILE throughout the entire race. You may be creative as to what materials you use to physically attach yourselves to one another.  Teams compete for best costumes!
