This race offers a fast, shaded, USATF certified course that starts and finishes near downtown at the Brookings County Courthouse, snakes through downtown and residential Brookings, including passes near Pioneer Park’s Summer Arts Festival, the children’s museum, and through Hillcrest Park. The course is well marked with very light traffic. Entry fee includes a t-shirt, entry for door prizes, age group medals to the top three, and a Beef & Eggs breakfast! Run for Beef & Eggs offers over $1,200 in cash prizes for the top three males and females in hopes of bringing the best competition from around the area. The race also encourages novice runners and walkers to come out and enjoy the morning while getting fit and, of course, some breakfast!
