About This Activity

How many races are led off with a sled dog mushing team!  This is also a great way to get your 2015 running season started.

Mushing for Meals is a 10K and 5K Run and 1 Mile Walk to benefit Beloit Meals On Wheels. This scenic run/walk 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 the most scenic early race in the Midwest.

Mushing Teams:  Participants in the 5K can compete as a "Mushing Team". To participate as a team you must have three runners who must be physically attached to each other forming a single file line. They can be as creative as they want in how they attach themselves to each other, but must remain attached throughout the entire race.  Teams can also compete for best costume!

New this year:  Courses are USATF Certified and Chip timed.

This is a 2015 Rockford Road Runner Circuit Race.   (Registration discount for Rockford Road Runners and Rockford Wildcats.
