Each participant and volunteer of the North Country Trail Run will be given free tickets to one of the best post race parties in the country. We begin grilling at 9 AM Saturday and won’t stop until the last runner crosses the finish line at 9 PM Saturday and then we’ll do it all over again Sunday from 9 AM to 3 PM.

  • Fire grilled and seasoned beef burgers
  • Marinated in honey and founders solid gold brats
  • Pure veggie burgers grilled on a separate grill from the above items
  • Baked beans with a hint of brown sugar
  • Fresh corn on the cob from Family Fare
  • Just the right seasoned red beans and rice
  • Pasta with red sauce
  • Grilled garlic herb potatoes
  • Black bean toasted corn salad
  • Water, Iced Tea, Tang and Kool-Aid

All family and friends of the runners can purchase a post race party ticket either at time of runner registration for $4.00 or day of the race for $5.00.

Founders Brewery Beer Tent

There is only one choice of beer that we serve at the North Country Trail Run and that is the best! Both Saturday and Sunday, those 21+ can enjoy a cup of beer for $2.00 with 100% of the proceeds going to a local school boosters program. The North Country Trail Run along with Founders Brewery provides all the necessary items, including the beer, so that the boosters program can raise funds for needed items for during the school year. Enjoy ice-cold and popular beer selections from Founders after your race and while your spending time watching others finish only feet away from the finish line. Just look for the Founders Beer Tent near the post race party line. Tickets for beer can be purchased only at the post race party ticket tent and be ready to always show ID.

Root Beer Floats

A tradition started in 2018, any runner, spectator and volunteer may request a free ticket to receive one root beer float at the post race party. A local group takes care of serving the declicious treat and the race provides a donation to the group as well as supplying all items for the root beer float area. That allows you to enjoy this sweet treat anytime during race weekend.
