Run the Hey Hey 5K in Baileys Harbor Sept. 26


Kick off the fall season with the new Hey Hey 5K Run, part of Baileys Harbor’s Autumnfest celebration on Sept. 26. Meet at the starting line of Door County’s newest fun-loving race that starts and ends at the Door County Brewing Co. tap room.

The Hey Hey 5K, presented by the Door County Brewing Company, celebrates an iconic Door County character with a run through the back roads of Baileys Harbor.

All runners get great swag including a Hey Hey 5K T-shirt, and a Door County Brewing Company mason jar pint glass ready to be filled with a free beer or root beer from the brewery’s tap room.

The Hey Hey 5K is named for one of the favorite sayings of Baileys Harbor icon Freddie Kodanko, the late Polka King who also inspired the name of one of Door County Brewing Co.’s signature beers, the Polka King Porter. Freddie K never ran a day in his life, but he loved a good time, loved his polka, and exuded the Door County spirit of friendliness and fun.

Registration is now open. The cost is $35 from Aug. 1 – 31; $40 from Sept. 1 – 24; and $45 on Sept. 25 & 26. For more information visit or find the Hey Hey 5K on Facebook.
