Alternative Race Option on July 11th

In addition to our super fun Virtual FrankenMüdder, we are now able to offer our runners the all-new option to run our Western Front FrankenMüdder - A live race, over hills, over dales, and hitting the muddy trails in Howard City. We found it difficult t to anticipate and navigate a safe way forward using the public spaces in Frankenmuth this year, so instead, we adjusted our fire and completed our objectives by having the race on privately-owned property. This will make it much easier to patrol social distancing and ensure our runner's safety.

So join us in Howard City for a new FrankenMüdder experience! We have commandeered some amazing property for our Western Front FrankenMüdder this year. (Actually, the owner of this private property is allowing us to run a race that was looking unmanageable in the streets and parks of Frankenmuth with so many unknowns regarding Covid-19 this year.) Just west of US-131, you will find a new, secluded 5k racecourse. This course includes swampland, hills, spring-fed ponds, beautifully wooded trails, a winding creek, sandhills, and as always MUD! This experience will be limited to the first 200 people who sign up so that we can ensure proper social distancing.

WHEN: July 11th, from 9:00AM until Noon
WHERE: 6880 Whitefish Road, Howard City, MI 49329
