Oktemberfest Race

The Oktemberfest “Its so Unofficial” race Starts at the NE corner of Courthouse. 1st street and Main!

The 5K course starts at the courthouse, on The NE Corner and runs a smooth path, with a few hills, to Iowa Veterans Home, out the main gate, and back. The 10K deviates from the 5K route but rejoins in few places. 2 or 3 water stations will be along the way to help keep racers cool. 10K and 5K racers depart at 7:40 am. Each participant will Receive a Oktemberfest related item (t shirt or Mug) and entered into a raffle for prizes. We have not made any attempt to be an officially timed event. You know, every event could be your personal best or not even close, but we wont ever know. Happy Running Everyone!

If You Sign up after Wednesday the 21st at 12:00pm, if supplies run out,  You will receive a shirt in the days following the race. There is a Day Of Race option to participate. 30.00 to pay in Person on race day. We are having extra shirts made but if they are gone, we will get them too you.

Arrive early for the drawings. We have Chamber Bucks for the two race winners, Male and Female, and (?) lucky participants. Participant drawing is before the race.

Update: This year we are trying to have packet pick up and in person registration/sign up different times during the festival. I will let you know when and where once closer to September.

All participants must be done by 9:15 am as to not interfere with the parade set up. Please think about that when choosing your distance.
