There's more to life than life

Get Out And Play

Everyone knows that the World's Largest Brat Fest has tons of food and drinks and free music on multiple stages. Brat Fest also has a carnival, a petting zoo, fireworks and many children's activities. Did you know that Brat Fest also has a Sports Zone where you can join in on a variety of team and individual sports? From runs, walks, jogs to volleyball, laser tag and cornhole, there is something for everybody.

This is a cup-free race

To align this event with the Brat Fest initiative to be a GREEN EVENT, we will not have water cups at the aid stations. You will need to bring a refillable water bottle. Each Aid Station will be equipped with 5 and 10 gallon water coolers with Quick-Pour spouts that can fill 6 ounces of water in 1 second. We will have reusable cups for sale at the Packet Pick-Up if you do not have one. Most races use 1-3 cups per runner at each Aid Station, going cup-free will allow Madison Events, Inc. to save more than 20,000 cups each year and reduce waste by 90%.

5K & 10K BUN RUN

Start your day at the Worlds Largest Brat Fest with a scenic 5K or 10K Run. Every finisher gets a medal, a Bun Run shirt, a free brat, a free beer and access to all of the live music and fun at Brat Fest.


Kids 12 and under can line up at the Start Line and do a 1 Mile, a 1/2 Mile or a 1/4 Mile Run.
The kiddos will all finish at the Finish Line in front of the cheering crowds.


Bring your best friend for this fun 5K!
