Race Events

Frankenmuth has a long history of quality race events starting 40 years ago with the Volksläufe “The People’s Race” which now draws nearly 2,500 runners and walkers. Frankenmuth is quickly becoming known as a race destination but with three run/walk events, a triathlon, a boot-camp style mud run as well as multiple cycling events, its no secret why. The newest is the Frankenmudder which benefits Michigan’s Military & Space Hero’s Museum. Check out the full list below and get your running shoes ready.
