The Frankenmuth Morning Rotary is proud to present the CHRISTMASTOWN 5K FUN RUN/WALK, taking place on Saturday, December 19, 2020 at Frankenmuth River Place Shops!

Registration for the untimed, non-competitive 5K fun run is $30. Includes:

  • Unique souvenir item to wear during the race
  • Christmas-themed finisher’s medal
  • Hot cocoa and cookies
  • Special guests including Santa Claus!

The route will start and end at River Place Shops, taking runners and walkers on a scenic tour of Frankenmuth including Grandpa Tiny’s Farm, Bronner’s CHRISTmas Wonderland and Jellystone Park. Christmas decorations and lights will illuminate the route.  Participants have the opportunity to explore Frankenmuth before and after to complete their holiday shopping or share a meal with loved ones.

Registration must be done online ahead of the race; participants can pick up their registration materials the day of starting at 3 p.m. at River Place Shops near the Cass River Bar and Grill. Race start time is 4:30 pm and may be staggered based on number of participants.

This race is non-refundable and takes place rain or shine.

River Place Shops requires all guests to wear a mask to enter any enclosed spaces at the shopping complex or throughout Frankenmuth. We encourage all participants to social distance themselves from others outside of their household and stay home if they are sick or experiencing any symptoms related to the coronavirus.

Hand sanitizer stations are available throughout the complex, along with both indoor and outdoor bathrooms.

The official route will be released once it is finalized – please contact Frankenmuth Morning Rotary at with questions.

Proceeds from Rotary projects go toward charitable causes including protective equipment for Frankenmuth Schools, Rotary Health initiatives and community-based initiatives.
