Frequently Asked Questions:

If I register after early registration has closed will I get a shirt?  When you register after early registration ends you will be prompted to select a shirt as give-away option.  Though this selection indicates your size, registrations taken after early registration cannot be guaranteed a shirt.  Fear Not, the Volkslaufe does 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 guests on race day.  For that reason, only those that register during our early registration period 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\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!
