We’ll still kick off Oktoberfest with our Fun Run – 5k or 1-mile options.  It will certainly be nice to get together once again after a challenging year.  We’ll have some fun elements for the kids again, snacks afterward, and our Family Registration again for 3 or more from the same household.  

NOTE:  We have an earlier deadline this year for guaranteeing a Race Shirt for our Kick Off Fun Run before our new Oktoberfest.  We definitely want to make sure everyone secures a cool shirt this year – check out the picture – so please Register by Midnight on Thursday, September 23 to guarantee getting a shirt.

If you have some family members who could Volunteer during the Race, please write to Brian at brian.schuetter@gmail.com
