Thousands of runners gather from all across the U.S. to jog through the streets and enjoy the festivities of the Fat Ass 5k. Join us as we celebrate one of Springfield's largest running events of the year.

The Fat Ass 5k is a timed race that includes beer, ice cream, donut and corndog stations as well as live entertainment and plenty of surprises throughout.  Be amazed as you jog past several historical sites and attractions while on the route! You can run this entire course, or take the 1/10 mile detour straight to the Celtic Mist Pub.  The choice is up to you!

The 5K race is followed by a street party that includes cold Pepsi, Coors beer, barbecue and more live music. All profits go to charity.

Friday: Fat Ass Craft Beer & Cigar Festival

Saturday: 5K Race and Street Party

Experience legendary, make memories, and feel the thrills of one of Springfield's largest events!
