The Sheboygan Brat Trot
Registration for the 2013 Brat Trot is NOW OPEN!
Every August since 1984, Sheboygan - the Bratwurst Capital of the World and home to Johnsonville Sausage - has celebrated the mighty Bratwurst with Brat Days. From 1984 to 2009, runners and walkers from around the country gathered in Sheboygan during the same weekend for the race of the summer - The Brat Trot. In 2010, the Brat Trot took a year off. In 2011, it returned. 2013 will be the best year ever!
