Volksläufe - The People's Race

Thu July 4, 2019 Frankenmuth, MI 48734 US Directions


Frequently Asked Questions:

When is the cut off for shirts: Anyone registered by July 1st is guaranteed a race shirt. However, we do order more shirts than we have taken registrations for.  Be aware, due to the need to ship and print shirts in time for the race, our order is an estimate of what we might need for our late registration guests on race day.  For that reason, only those that register by July 1st are guaranteed a runner shirt.  If you just love shirts and would be sad to not receive one, our advice would be to come to packet pickup as early as possible to increase your chances of snagging an extra shirt - we like happy runners!

Can I run with my dog or stroller?  Participants can run with a stroller but we ask that you position yourself at the back of the pack.  Unfortunately, our insurance company no longer advises we have pets on the course.  The Volkslaufe loves animals but asks that you not bring your animals on the course. 

I see you have gone paperless, how do I register without using my credit card? On-site registration will be accepting cash payment.  Guidelines for day of registration can be found on our website at\volkslaufe.

I have a great costume ready for my run, what is too outrageous? Family-friendly attire of all sorts are welcome, the more inventive, colorful and fun the better!  Prizes are awarded for the best dressed persons on the course, no registration is necessary - our designated spotters will be on the look out for your fancy duds!

Where is the best place to view the Race Eve fireworks show? Heritage Park, of course!  The grounds will be hosting dinners, snacks, special musical guests, a Beer Garten, children's entertainment and much, much more!
