**COVID 19 Updates (August 16, 2020)

We have received official approval from the state health department to race under the non-contact sport guidelines. Currently we are planning to race as normal, with modifications.  As of June 1st, there will be no refunds and no transfers to 2021 Oktoberfest 10k.  All registrations are for the 2020 race only.  We will run the race live unless the climate of COVID changes and we are mandated by the state to stop.  We are finalizing the logistics of the race in order to meet social distancing guidelines.  Updates will be communicated to all registrants once they are finalized.  Prize money will only be rewarded if we run as a live event and based on gun start time only.  If we are forced to cancel the live event, we will run the event as a virtual race.  If we go virtual, race materials will be distributed through packet pickups, mailings and other means necessary to comply with government regulations.  We thank everyone for their past, present and future support for the Minster Oktoberfest Classic 10k and we hope to race in October!

Back by popular demand, Finisher Medals are Back!!!  New this year, there is a "No Frills" entry that does not include the finisher medal or shirt, but saves $10!  Also new this year, no processing fees!!! 

Prize money to the top 10, master's, grand master, top town finishers (non-high school) and 1/4, 1/2 and 3/4 of the pack placers.  Age group awards to the top 5 in each category. 


Unfortunately given this year's circumstances there will be NO 1 mile fun run.  We have all intentions of bringing it back in 2021! 

The course is flat and fast with lots of music and fun along the way.  It is part of the Run Ohio Grand Prix Series, one of the fastest 10k races in the Midwest and offers great prize money!
