Run the Inaugural Bruckelaufe Half Marathon & 5k Saturday in Frankenmuth
If you’ve been looking for a good post-Crim challenge, the Frankenmuth Jaycees have a race for you! The inaugural “Bruckelaufe” or “Bridge Race,” will take place Saturday, October 6th. Run a half marathon (13.1 miles) or 5k.
The Bruckelaufe half marathon features 13 bridges in 13.1 miles, including the Holze Brucke (Wooden Bridge), the 1904 Gugel Bridge, and the 1907 Iron Trestle Bridge.
The half marathon starts at 8:00 a.m. at Heritage Park, the 5k at 8:30 a.m. Both races finish at Heritage Park.
The course is flat and fast, and with the fall colors and the bridge crossings it should be very scenic. After running all those miles, treat yourself to a nice meal in Frankenmuth.
You can sign up on race day, but are encouraged to do so before that. www.bruckelaufe.org
