Hotoberfest 13.1M/10K routes

This race is completely run off public roads on a bike trail at Pennypack Park in Philadelphia. Gorgeous course along the Pennypack creek. 100% traffic free, matter of fact, you might not even see a single house or car while running in the woods. You will be supported by 7 aid stations , including the Oktoberfest aid station powered by Heidi, the Bavarian waitress.Thekla Grund – former owner of the Old Brauhaus & Linda Weiss, reason #67 why Oprah’s weight is yo-yoing, (I did not make this up) will take care of you post race. If you are too slow to win an age group award, dress up. We will reward the best/funniest outfits (must have some kind of relation to Oktoberfest). Everyone loved the cuckoo egg hunt during the sloppy cuckoo trail half, therefore we will once again hide some cuckoo eggs along the course. Return a egg to the RD to win a cool prize.

We have placed the order for the age group awards. These unique awards come from the Black Forest of Germany. They are german weather houses. They can predict future weather pretty much as reliable as "Glen Hurrican Schwarz" . Here is how they work: There is a gut string inside which reacts to all changes in air humidity. Depending on wether the air is dry or humid, the gut string changes it's position and twists more or less, so that the female turns outside when it is dry (predicting nice weather) and the male, when it is humid.
