Note: This event has already passed.

Oktoberfest is just around the corner, one blink and it’s October 21 – and you know already, German beer and food is involved – prepare yourself for all the goodies you’ll consume at our annual Oktoberfest and sing up for these years runs:

10K Lederhosen Leap and 5K Dirndl Dash! Uchee Creek is beautiful by itself, but nothing better than an early fall morning run thru the wooded hills around Uchee Creek. Our 10K Lederhosen Leap is not stroller friendly, the 5K Dirndl Dash is more accommodating for strollers and those not able to run a rough a trail. But none of those are just simple runs! As the name states, it’s an Oktoberfest run! Dress up, Lederhosen or Dirndl – the winner takes home a great price! 

No matter what: we have something for everyone! Sign up early and secure your free Oktoberfest T-shirt and the best – a free Bratwurst!

Volksmarch:  What is a Volksmarch you ask? A volksmarch is a non-competitive 3.1 mile (5 km) walk. It's not a pledge walk, it's not a race, but it is a fun activity you do with a club, with your family, with your pet, or all by yourself. Volksmarching got its name from its origins in Europe. And since we bring Germany for 3 days to you, make sure you attend all the activities, especially since the Volksmarch is a free event. Our annual Volksmarch starts around 9:30 a.m. – but there is no need to rush – you can march all day long, anytime you wish!

Stop by the Information tent on October 22 starting 9:30 a.m., but all day long, no matter if you wish to march at 11 a.m. or 3 p.m. – pick up this years Volksmarch map, march, take a selfie in between and post to our social media (because we want to know how much you enjoyed yourself), and once you finished your march, come back to the information tent and pick up this year’s Oktoberfest pin! If you marched every year, you should have a collection by now! If this is your first march – start collecting now! The Volksmarch is a free event, no stress, no hustle, bring the kids, dogs, neighbors, just have fun while marching!
