LOCATION: Moore Square - 200 S Blount St

Oktoberfest Run Green 8K is a charitable event where race proceeds go to Wake Enterprises. Run Green is the race theme with a double meaning, both encouraging participants to begin celebrating for Oktoberfest and to support running events that are sustainable. It will feature unique German giveaways and festivities as preparation for other downtown Oktoberfest celebrations. However, environmentally friendly features will be the main focus of the event and include using compostable serving products that are made from corn or soy products, offering composting of leftover food waste, serving post-race food that is local and sustainable, featuring local businesses that have a "green" focus, allowing carbon footprint offset donations by participants to cover their travel to the event, and making this a carbon neutral running event.
