Frequently Asked Questions:

When is the cut off for shirts: .        Anyone reigetred before July 1st is guaranteed and 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?  We welcome participants of all ages and species to our event, however we ask that you kindly position yourself at the back of the race pack and avoid impeding any other runners who may wish to pass.  Well behaved pets are welcome, but we must ask, that if your special companion becomes agitated that you leave the course or if nature calls and Fido uses natures restroom that you are considerate to the other runners and cleanup after our furry friends.

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 www.runfrankenmuth.org\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 and much, much more!
