The run begins at 12:30 pm and starts North of the Gateway building on the Peoria Riverfront. The race is being sponsored by the Peoria Jaycee, the Peoria German-American Society, and the Peoria Park District. Races have been part of Oktoberfests since they were started in the early 1800’s. At that time though it horse racing and not foot races. Advance registration is $25. After September 1 and on race day the registration fee is $30. A commemorative 1 liter stein will be given to those runners who register early. All participants will receive 2 tokens for either beer or soft drinks after the race as well as free admission to the Oktoberfest on the day of the race.
