For over two decades, runners, walkers, families and friends have taken part in the 5k Run/Walk and 'Lil Dutch Run as part of the Haubstadt Sommerfest weekend. Will you join us this year?


Founded in 1996, Laufenfest was created for one reason: to spend time with our friends in the most German way possible! What better way to do this than host an annual, lederhosen-clad 5K? Whether you sign up for the competition, the celebratory bier at the finish line, or the bierstube ticket with included t-shirt, Laufenfest participants all enjoy themselves for their own reasons! Following the race, Sommerfest food, game and ride booths will open at 10:00am. Then, join us at noon for the annual parade. And, for our 21+ participants, don't miss the bierstube!
