The 36th annual Bill’s Beer Run (BBR) is a 5-mile road race that takes place on October 27 along beautiful Casey Key, Florida, hosted each year by the Manasota Track Club (MTC).  

This year’s theme is FAIRY TALES, FANTASY and FABLES! 

Bill’s Beer Run

This renowned 5-Mile Run was started in 1989 by MTC member Bill Menard as the sole fundraiser for our non-profit organization, and it continues to be a highlight of the running year for our local population. Your membership fees and the proceeds from BBR are the only means of fundraising the MTC does. 

This longstanding club event sells out quickly and is limited to 700 runners. MTC members enjoy the perk of early registration ensuring they secure their spots. (Non-member registration opens on July 1st – if there are any remaining spots.)   Long touted as “the most fun you can have running five miles!” AMAZING race course along the Gulf of Mexico, Halloween weekend, BEER, great race shirts, costumes, 10-deep age group awards, DJ, costume contests, BEER, dancing, hot-dogs, BEER and more! 


Registration for MTC members opens on June 1 at 10:27 a.m.
