- Honarable Mention #2 goes to our friend, Ginger Burow, who ran with her dog Zorro. We are very grateful to Ginger for assisting us with making the Virtual Kraut Run successful. She was a big help and had great ideas!
- Due to COVID-19 concerns, we have gone virtual this year in order to ensure that our critical financial support to school and community-based literacy programs is not interrupted. This is a "Run-it-yourself" race which can be run or walked anytime between October 3 through October 31. The race can be completed anywhere (treadmills included). You get to choose the course.
- As in past races, registration will include our very popular long-sleeved technical fabric t-shirt. The shirt will have the Oktoberfest themed race logo similar or identical to the logo at the top of this registration page. A lot of past racers say our shirts are worth the price of registration! When registering, you will have the option to select a local Fredericksburg shirt pickup or have the shirt mailed to your address.
- We encourage you to be creative and post pictures of how and where you run your race on the Kraut Run Facebook page. We will have awards for best costume and best race locale and possibly more prizes as the race draws closer.
