Lederhosen 5K

September 21, 2024

Come celebrate Oktoberfest with us by running or walking the Lederhosen 5K. This course starts and finishes near Fanny Bridge in Tahoe City. It features an out and back course on a class 1 (10′ wide) paved trail along the Truckee River.

Registration includes beer tickets and commemorative Oktoberfest beer glass. Start with the run/walk and then stay for the festivities to celebrate Oktoberfest.

Don’t forget to wear your Lederhosen or Drindl¬†as we will be awarding the best costume for the run and for the day. Don’t have any authentic Bavarian clothing? That’s OK there is plenty available online.
