5K Oktoberfest Run
Hosted by the German School Washington D.C. and the German Language Courses
On Saturday, September 28, 2013 the German School Washington D.C. and the German Language Courses (GLC) hosted their second annual 5K Oktoberfest Run & 1K Fun Run in Potomac, Md.
A total of 444 runners participated in the race. The festivities kicked off with the 5K run for adults at 9:00 a.m. and were followed by the 1K Fun Run for children at 10:00 a.m.
Post-race activities for the whole family were offered during a traditional Oktoberfest including German food, kids’ games and language labs. Event highlights included a performance by the “Bairisch and Steierisch Dancers” and a silent auction with great prizes.
The German School and GLC are looking forward to hosting next year’s run.
