...with apologies. A valued member of our event staff passed away unexpectedly today (our executive chef). Due to his critical role in the event, we have made the decision to cancel.


to the annual German Oktoberfest hosted by the Church of Francis de Sales in Mathews, Virginia. This year, we have organized a pre-dinner event: a 5k race and 1 mile Volksmarch. Join us for a full evening of competition, entertainment, and great food - all for a very reasonable cost. Proceeds for the race and dinner will benefit the Church of Francis de Sales!

Tickets for this event sell out every year so sign up early. You can register for the race or meal separately or together - while dinner tickets last. Registration will remain open online through noon on race-day - no on-site registration is available - pre-register to guarantee participation for this evening package deal. German dinner tickets only available through 10/3 so we can plan our food purchase. After 10/3, registration will be open for the 5k or 1m only.

All 5k & 1m Volksmarch participants will receive a custom commemorative German Stein. Awards for 5k race will be presented to the top overall male & female finishers and for the top 2 male & female finishers in 9 age groups. The Virginia Tidewater Trailrunners LLC (VTTR) is the the race manager for this event. For questions on the 5k and/or 1m race, email the club at vttrunners@gmail.com. Live, real-time race results will be displayed on the club website at www.vttrunners.com/oktoberfest.
