Oktoberfest Virtual Kraut Run 8K and 5K Run/Walk

11th Annual VIRTUAL 5K & 8K Run/5K Non-timed Walk sponsored by Fredericksburg Morning Rotary to benefit literacy programs in Fredericksburg. This year the Kraut Run will be virtual! Thanks to COVID-19 and the safety precautions that are in place by the City of Fredericksburg, our Kraut Run will be done social distance style. But, it is still going to be great! We may not have beer and sausage at the end of the run, but we have awesome long sleeve running shirts for everyone who registers. And hey, you get to pick your own course! We even have special prizes for the best costumes again this year. Just send us a photo of you running in your costume to enter. Hit the “register” button for more details. Remember, you are contributing to great literacy and community needs projects in Fredericksburg and Gillespie County. That’s why we do this, and we can’t do it without you!
