The Frankenmuth Jaycees are proud to host their annual Independence Day races! The Volksläufe, German for "The People's Race," is held annually in celebration of family, friendship, and fitness! The race's certified 5K, 10K, and Half Marathon courses begin and end in beautiful Heritage Park. The scenic routes wind runners around historic Frankenmuth, over the famed Holzbrücke wooden bridge and the Cass River. For our younger race enthusiasts, there is also a family-friendly 2K Fun Run!
