Altoona Running Club's inaugural running of the ARC Oktoberfest 6k will be held October 2nd, 2021 at 10AM. ARC is taking over the fall Altoona race from the Chamber of Commerce and putting our own fun spin on it. This race will be a chance to get a new PR as 6k is an unusual distance. With the Oktoberfest theme we are encouraging everyone to break out their best German costumes and dress up as well! The race will be starting near the plaza just to the west of Hy-Vee in Altoona, behind Swain Chiropractic and Brightside Aleworks. The course is an out and back on the beautiful bike trails of Altoona.
After the 6k there will be a kids pumpkin dash starting at 11AM on the Plaza between Swain Chiropractic and Hy-Vee. This free event is open to children ages 2-10 with divisions of 2-4, 5-7, 7-10 years old. More details to come on distances and prizes.
