Volksläufe: Volksläufe (volk - slõy - fay) is German for "The People's Race". The Frankenmuth Jaycees are proud to bring you the 38th annual running of the Volksläufe. In the spirit of family, friendship, and fitness the Volksläufe continues to excel as one of the Midwest's finest road races. All Volksläufe events are held on a certified course, beginning and ending in Heritage Park. Split times are provided throughout the course and aid stations are located at approximately 3k intervals.
The Volksläufe provides runners of all levels the choice of a 20k, 10k, or 5k run along with a 5k walk. We also offer a 2k Gemuetlichkeit Run for those 12 and under. All events are held on certified courses with 95% hard surface and some hills. The course takes runners through Historic Frankenmuth (all traffic controlled), by neighboring farms, and finally, along the winding Cass River, past a "grist mill" and across the world's largest covered bridge built in the 20th century.
