VIRTUAL - Volkslaufe (The People's Race)

Celebrate your 4th of July with the first-ever Virtual Volksläufe - The People's Race on Saturday, July 4, 2020!

The Volksläufe, German for "The People's Race," is held annually in celebration of family, friendship, and fitness! During these uncertain times in our world, we have made difficult decision to turn our efforts in presenting the 2020 Volksläufe in the safest manner possible.

Each year, the Frankenmuth Jaycees present this exciting and enjoyable 4th of July experience which includes our premier races on July 4th as well as a fireworks celebration the evening prior to the race. The fireworks display, which is enjoyed by runners from across this great region and community members alike, is fully funded by the proceeds raised by the Frankenmuth Jaycees through this project. It is one of the many ways our organization looks to serve our community each year. We truly appreciate all of the support from our runners, our business sponsors, our annual vendors, and our community. It is with great sadness that we will not be sharing this special time with you all around the 4th of July in person; however, we hope you will join us virtually to “Run for the Fireworks”, and support our efforts to continue this long standing tradition in 2020 and years to come.

The Jaycees are a volunteer leadership organization consisting of civic-minded individuals between the ages of 21-41. All proceeds from the Volksläufe will serve to fund the July 3rd fireworks display. Any excess proceeds will be donated in our traditional manner to various charitable causes. Thank you for your continued support of this great racing tradition!

Packet distribution will occur via mail in correlation with the virtual race this year. Please ensure your address is accurate when registering to ensure timely delivery of your packets.

An official Volkslaufe Dri-Fit shirt, a commemorative medal, and an official race number will still be issued to participants.

You will be able to upload your virtual times via the EnMotive platform. We will be sending out a "race day" email with instructions.
