Lederhosenlauf 5k Run - 10th Anniversary & 1st GAI Fahrradtour -17 Mile Ride

Lederhosenlauf 5k - Saturday, June 10 at 8:10am

At Deutsche Tage, we love to celebrate our love of the outdoors as well as sporting good-fun. That's why in 2007 we forged a partnership with Charities Challenge to create the Lederhosenlauf -  a 5k fun-run where you can run in your Lederhosen or Dirndl as a kick-off to the first day of Deutsche Tage. This year we raise a glass and celebrate 10 years promoting intercultural understanding through Sport und Bier!

Race-day registration begins on Saturday morning at the Germanic-American Institute at 6:45am and closes at 7:55am. Line-up is at 8am with a 8:10am start. The course is a USATF-certified route down Selby Avenue through the beautiful Cathedral Hill area with chipped time results for different divisions. All runners receive a complimentary meal and beverage at the end of the race.
For junior runners, there is a 1-Mile Kids Fun Run, which starts at 9:20am.

GAI Fahrradtour - Saturday, June 10 at 9:30am

To expand and continue our Sport und Bier festivities, the GAI is organizing our first Fahrradtour - 17 Mile Bike Ride at Deutsche Tage. Bicyclists will gather in the Biergarten on the GAI Lawn at 9am and the ride begins 9:30am. The ride is a guided route, on open roads. Those who complete the Fahrradtour get their first beer (or non-alcoholic beverage) for free. Plus, all bicyclists enjoy $5 beer 10am-4pm on Saturday as part of our Bicyclists’ Biergarten which celebrates environmentally friendly transportation. Show your helmet/bike gear at the bar to get your discount.

Fahrradtour registration is now closed. We look forward to seeing you this weekend!


Register for both the Lederhosenlauf and the Fahrradtour to make your own personal Duathlon!
