The Frankenmuth Jaycees proudly present three road races each year. The young professional's organization operates each race solely through donations and volunteers.

Winterläufe: Established in 2009, the Winterläufe is an 8K race that is typically held on the first Saturday in February and attracts more than 700 participants.

Brückeläufe: Established in 2012, the Brückeläufe is the newest addition to the Frankenmuth Jaycees Race Series and consists of a 5K and half marathon distance. It is typically held the first Saturday of October.

The Jaycees are a volunteer leadership organization consisting of civic-minded individuals between the ages of 21-41. All proceeds from the Frankenmuth Jaycee Race Series, as with all Jaycee fundraising events, are donated to local charitable causes.
