Chase the Chicken Down the Parade Route in the Onkel Hans 5K Fun Run!


On Monday, October 10th, kick-off the Kitchener-Waterloo Oktoberfest Thanksgiving Day Parade and participate in the Onkel Hans 5K Fun Run. The race will begin at 8:30 am on King and William Streets in Waterloo, and run right down the Parade route, finishing at the Kitchener Auditorium where participants will be whisked away to a post-race party at the Schwaben Club.

Participants are encouraged to come dressed in crazy Oktoberfest costumes, traditional or fun, and ‘Chase the Chicken’ down the Parade Route, in front of thousands of spectators gathered for the Parade! The winners of the Onkel Hans 5K are whisked back to the start to ride in the Thanksgiving Day Parade.

Register online at www.oktoberfest.ca under the Family & Cultural Events tab. Register as an individual for $35.00, or as a family of four for $100.00. Join the Moose Winooski’s Corporate Team Challenge and register four people for $150.00, with a Moose Winooski’s prize package going to the team that raises the most pledges.

Proceeds from the race support the Home Caregiver’s Programme of The Order of St. Lazarus of Western Ontario; which provides essential physical, spiritual, emotion, legal and financial information to those who are giving care to their loved ones who are seriously ill at home.

Don’t want to run? Come out early to cheer on the runners and get a great spot for the Parade!
