EVENT DETAILS

Global Virtual Oktoberfest Fun Run & Oktoberfest Celebration

October 3 - 17, 2020

The Oktoberfest in Munich is cancelled, but the spirit of Oktoberfest continues whether you’re in München or Manhattan, Miami, Milan or Macau! Celebrate German culture and heritage with a VIRTUAL FUN RUN and an in-person or (virtual) keg ceremony and celebration!

Germans and Germany-fans, competitive and leisure runners, in jerseys, Lederhosen or Dirndl, Oktoberfestlers, families, corporate teams and small business owners come together to celebrate the famous German Oktoberfest tradition - together and across the world - because in 2020, we physically separate and find unity in virtual events.

Run or walk your 1k, 5k, 10k or 100k between October 3 - October 15, 2020. Cook a German meal at home or order take-out at your local German food outlet. Post your video or photo on your social media account and tag us to enter for prizes.
