Welcome to the Mill City Suds Run, brought to you by O'Donovan's Irish Pub! Join us for this super fun 5K "run, walk or whatever" on Saturday, September 14th. Put on your running shoes, costume if you like and join thousands for the 22nd running of the Suds Run (formerly Blubber Run).
The tradition of this great event continues! Great run course starts at and crosses the Stone Arch Bridge, onto Missisippi River Parkway, over the Plymouth Ave Bridge into Boom Island (where you can enjoy a brew and catch some live music), onto Nicollet Island and to the cobblestone of historic SE Main St to the finish line at Father Hennepin Park.
This is a family friendly event so bring the entire crew!
Enjoy snacks, a BBQ lunch & some brews all to live Rock 'n Roll music at the band shell in the park.
Speedy runner, or not, don't fret, costumes, creativity and a great sense of fun count most in this 5K race. Bring your friends, bring the pet, bring the kids, wear your goofiest outfit, just show up and join in the fun.
There are prizes for the Best Costume, Best Group Costume, Best Pet/Human Costume, Best Kid/Adult Combo, Fastest Male Runner and Fastest Female Runner. It's a real 5K, with the extra trimmings. Where else do you get beer (or root beer) at the water stop? Water is optional!
Free pilsner to the first 900 pre-registered participants who pick-up shirt & number at O'Donovan's on Thursday or Friday.
