Driving Directions 

Oktoberfest 5K Walk/Run and Kids Fun Run 

The race course has been wheel-measured for accuracy and we've added chip-timing to this great community race. Kids can get in the action, too with the Kids Fun Run happening at 9:00 a.m. All children get a race bib; finisher's ribbon, goodie-bag and t-shirt for entering the race!  This is a great family event and you can enjoy the West Acton Merchant's Oktoberfest following the run.

Thousands of dollars go back into the community because of this race and our non-profit partnership. You name the local non-profit organization and we'll donate $5 ($2.50 from Kids Fun Run) of your race fee to that cause. Get your friends together, form a team and run for the money - raise money together to make a difference in the community!
