Kitchener-Waterloo Oktoberfest 5K Fun Run is Monday, October 10, 2016

 

It is a Thanksgiving Day tradition, show up to your favourite spot on the Parade Route nice and early and just before the annual Oktoberfest Thanksgiving Day Parade begins, you cheer on hundreds of runners on the parade route as they try to achieve their personal best times.

The Oktoberfest 5K Fun Run begins at 8am and will follow the same route it did last year. The run starts on Eby Street beside the Kitchener Market and then follows the parade route along King Street, Victoria Street and Weber Street before it concludes at Moses Springer Arena on Lincoln Road in Waterloo.

Runners are encouraged to dress up in costume or their Oktoberfest tracht for the run and the entire event is a whole lot of fun. At the conclusion of the run, runners get to partake in an authentic Oktoberfest party, receive medals and prizes for best times in each category.

Registration for the Oktoberfest 5K Fun Run closes on October 5. Visit 5k.oktoberfest.ca today and get signed up. We will accept race day registrations at a cost of $30 for runners 18 & under, $50 for runners 19 & over and $200 for teams of 4.

The Oktoberfest 5K Fun Run is proudly sponsored by The Waterloo Region Record: Community Partnerships Program.
