Lace ‘Em Up at the Hey Hey 5K

There’s a new fun run coming to Baileys Harbor Sept. 26 to kick off the Baileys Harbor Autumnfest weekend.

The Hey Hey 5k will start and end at the Door County Brewing Co. taproom at 8 am, and all runners get some great swag for joining the inaugural event.

Each participant will receive a special Door County Brewing Co. Hey Hey 5k Mason jar pint glass, as well as a Hey Hey 5k baseball shirt while supplies last. The pint glass includes a first fill free at the taproom.

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. The race is sponsored by FM 106.9 The Lodge and brought to you by the Peninsula Pacers.

The run is named for one of the favorite sayings of a man who wasn’t much for running, but was all about fun, Baileys Harbor icon Freddie Kodanko. The late Polka King 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.

On-site registration will be available Saturday morning at 7 am, and runners will also be able to register at the taproom Friday night, Sept. 25, from 6 – 9 pm. For more information visit
