Calling all Minnesotans (and neighbors) to venture into the outdoors and join us at Brookview Golf Course for the first Sota Lumberjack 5k Trek. Bring your bearded fellas, plaid, and be ready to run or walk outside and drink some bald-faced whiskey on February 25th!

We’re encouraging Minnesotans and friends to get outside, embrace the cold weather and enjoy the snow and beauty of our state, while wearing your best lumberjack and jill attire!

This 5k is not a competitive race, so chip timers and racing bibs will NOT be present, although a race clock will be visible at the finish line. The first man & woman to cross the finish line will receive the Sota Lumberjack 5k Trek Axe Award, handcrafted by Uptown Woodworks! The registration fee includes one of our Superior Goods winter beanie, 2 free beer or soda vouchers from Brookview Golf, and a Sip Dark gift card!

Pit stops are highly encouraged. The Brookview Bar & Grill will be open to serve food and drinks! Grab a beverage before you start and halfway through you will be able to replenish, thanks to the Brookview beverage cart (aka beer cart). Enjoy some Hammerschlagen while listening to live music from, The Flannel Channel, and try a Lumberjack cocktail special that will surely put some hair on your chest!

About the venue:

It’s nice when we find another local business that has the same core values as us here at Sota clothing.  Teaming up with Brookview Golf Course for this special event proves to be a beneficial relationship for those who love to be active outdoors during our coldest season.  Brookview offers a variety of winter activities such as: disc golf, fat tire bike rentals, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, skijoring, and walking.

The Brookview Bar & Grill will be open to provide food and beverages. There are also warm-up areas inside or around the outdoor fire pit to roast marshmallows for your s’mores after the run! Restrooms and locker rooms are also available for runners.

Sota Clothing will be showcasing Superior Goods, our new Outdoor Lifestyle brand. We will have a pop-up shop with new items from Superior Goods and Sota clothing.

Eliminate your cabin fever, sign up and start prepping your beards for the most fun you’ve ever had during a 5k! See you soon!
