If you're planning to attend the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival on June 15, you'll now have the chance to go for a nice run prior to watching performances by artists including John Oates , Billy Idol and Allman Brothers spinoff group Gov't Mule .  Bonnaroo producers have announced that they will be offering the first-ever Roo Run , a 5-kilomter trek that loops around the festival grounds.  The race is set to take place on June 15, the third day of the fest, beginning at 9 a.m. ET.

The Roo Run will offer festival-goers three different speed lanes for the event: slow, medium and fast.  Runners who finish first in each lane will win prizes, with additional prizes awarded to those who finish "graciously" and "stylishly."  Runners who drop out of the race also will be eligible to receive prizes.

To register for the Roo Run you'll need to donate $5 to the Bonnaroo Works Fund , a non-profit group that supports organizations and programs focused on the arts, education and environmental sustainability.

The 2013 Bonnaroo festival take place June 13-16 in Manchester, Tennessee.  Other artists scheduled to take the stage during the event include Paul McCartney , Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers , ZZ Top , David Byrne and John McLaughlin , and more.
