Beer Belly 5K

Loosen up for a run in the sun this Saturday for the 3rd Annual Beer Belly 5K! On March 23, everyone is invited to participate in a morning fun run, and adults may enjoy a few craft brews along the way. The event is designed to raise awareness for Meals on Wheels of Manatee, Inc, and you can donate canned goods before the race begins.

When and Where

The 5K will begin at 9 a.m. on Saturday, March 23. The start line is over Health Parkway by Lakewood Ranch Medical Center.  You can find parking in the nearby lots at the Medical Center and adjacent to Main Street.  To participate you’ll need a race packet. These packets will be available for pickup on March 21 at Fit2Run Sarasota from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. They will also be available on March 22 at 9Round Fitness from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.

Drink and Dash

The route stretches from the Medical Center to the turnaround point at River Oak Run. Runners may catch their breath at multiple beer stops along the route. There’s no need to count calories this morning, as the 5K is sure to get your heart racing. If you’re in the mood for a little variety, you may also enjoy hand-crafted mojitos in a number of different flavors.

The After Party

When everyone has crossed the finish line, stick around and cool down for the festivities on Main Street. Now’s your chance to cash-in on the two drink tickets you received at registration, and additional beverages will be for sale. A regional fishing apparel vendor will be on site along with massage therapists to take the edge of the morning’s excursion. The party lasts until noon.
