**COVID 19 Updates (June 1, 2020)
Currently we are planning to race as normal. 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 make every attempt to run the race live. Modifications may be required, for example the race may run with staggered starts if required (solely speculation at this point). Updates will be communicated to all registrants as we know further information. Prize money will only be rewarded if we run as a live event and based off 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!
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!!!
Back like last year is 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. Team Awards to the top 3 teams as determined by cumulative time (individual times added for first 5 runners on each team).
There is also a 1 mile fun run, race day registration only ($5).
