Join Brückeläufe Half Marathon & 5K
The Frankenmuth Jaycees are proud to bring you the Brückeläufe Half Marathon & 5K. The fall race in the Frankenmuth Jaycee Race Series. For almost 40 years, the Frankenmuth Jaycees have been organizing some of the top road races in the Midwest.
The Brückeläufe Half Marathon crosses 13 bridges in its 13.1 miles. Most notably are the Holz Brucke (wooden bridge), the 1904 Gugel Bridge, and the 1907 iron trestle Black Bridge.
Both elite athletes and amateurs will appreciate the newest Frankenmuth Road Race. The Brückeläufe is German for Bridge Race. The half marathon distance is an ideal prep race for any marathon while the rolling 5K course offers a scenic fall tour through a German-inspired village. The Brückeläufe is a USATF-certified event that begins and ends in Heritage Park in downtown Frankenmuth.
For the race itself, the course will follow an out-and-back route that starts and finishes in Heritage Park, which lies along a bend in the Cass River the flows through the city. From there, the course heads south and west, crossing the river right after runners pass the first mile marker, for the first of two quick bridge crossings over the river.
All half marathon participants will receive a custom engraved wooden medallion featuring the Holz Brücke. The top three finishers in each of the below age groups will receive prizes in the 5K run and walk. Runners who compete in each of the three races in the Frankenmuth Jaycees series will receive a custom medallion. Absentee awards will not be mailed, but will held for pick up at the Frankenmuth Chamber of Commerce and Convention and Visitors Bureau until January 1 of the following year.
There are numerous free parking options in downtown Frankenmuth within close proximity to Heritage Park. A large grass parking lot on Weiss Street offers the closest free parking, however departure form that lot can be delayed because Weiss Street is part of the race route and will be closed intermittently.
