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 20k courses begin and end in beautiful Heritage Park. The scenic routes wind runners around historic Frankenmuth, over the famed Holz Brucke wooden bridge and Cass River. For our younger race enthusiasts, there is also a family themed 2k Fun Run!
