Running: Half Marathon, 6.5 Miles
September 28th, 2019
The Lederhosen Running Festival is a Running race in Newark, Delaware consisting of a Half Marathon and 6.5 Miles.
Crown Prince Ludwig, later to become King Ludwig I, was married to Princess Therese of Saxony-Hildburghausen on 12th October 1810.
The citizens of Munich were invited to attend the festivities held on the fields in front of the city gates to celebrate the happy royal event.
Horse races in the presence of the Royal Family marked the close of the event that was celebrated as a festival for the whole of Bavaria. The decision to repeat the horse races in the subsequent year gave rise to the tradition of the Oktoberfest.
So we invite you to race around Newark DE, eat Bratwurst, enjoy a Lager, and celebrate Oktoberfest with us.
