Join us Sat October 2, 2021 at the Lake County Fairgrounds in Two Harbors MN for the Fur-k (5 K Race) and DogtoberFest Beer Tasting Festival! 


The Fur-K course will be run on the Erkki Harju Ski Trail.  This is a multi-ticket event.  Register for the morning (8am to 12pm) or afternoon block (1pm- 4pm) for the Fur-K.  Participants will arrive, check-in, and start their Fur-K anytime during their window.  Time will be kept for you from your time of start to when you check back in at the finish line.  


Then, if you want MORE fun, join us for DogtoberFest!

COVID restrictions were lifted for events in MN and we are able to bring back our Beer Tasting Festival (formerly Beer & Bacon Event).  This is a separate ticket added to your cart for a reduced price.  (We highly recommend purchasing a pre-sale ticket prior to the event so the brewers can plan how much BEER to bring) 

This is our official kick-off to the race season -- Musher Registration will be happening all day at the Fur-K and DogtoberFest.  Keep your eye on our Facebook Page to see who has registered! 

Blacklist Brewing Co. will be kicking off the DogtoberFest Beer Tasting Celebration serving samples of Bloody Beers all day!
