We’re excited for the newest 5K in the Quad Cities! The Lederhosen 5K presented by UnityPoint Health – Trinity is Saturday, October 1st at Schwiebert Riverfront Park in downtown Felsen Insel (Rock Island). Proceeds from this event benefit the Church of Peace Food Pantry that serves over 1500 families each year and annually supplies almost 40,000 pounds of food.
You’re encouraged to dress up for the run/walk in your best lederhosen or dirndl. Kids aren’t left out with their own half-mile fun run called the Kinderlauf.
When you’re done, stay for the Oktoberfest Post-Race Party supported by City Limits Saloon & Grill and Euclid Beverages! There will be your favorite beverages, German food, music, and fun! This Oktoberfest is for the whole family and continues until 4 p.m.
You can get more information and register for the 5K at www.lederhosen5K.com. A lot of volunteers will be needed for this event so let Jessica Waytenick know if you’re available. Also please share this information with EVERYONE you know to help get the word out.
