It's the most Oktoberfest-ive 5K/10K of the season! Kick off the St. Charles Oktoberfest Festival with the 5th Annual Oktoberfest 5K/10K Run and 1-Mile Root Beer Walk through the historic streets of downtown St. Charles! The flat, fast course winds through St. Charles's legendary Main Street and tours the Frenchtown district before leading runners along the Missouri River to a celebratory finish line on the Katy Trail, smack dab in the center of the festival. All participants 21-and-over get a free beer! (It is Oktoberfest, after all.) Proceeds benefit the Disabled Athlete Sports Association. All 5K /10K and 1 mile registrants receive a t-shirt and a commemorative medal.
