 Run. Eat. Beer.
The Wurst Run 5k and 10k, presented by race|NORTHWEST, is an uphill, downhill, don’t get lost, eat great sausage (Wurst), beer drinking fun run. This race navigates along the streets of Mount Angel and includes just enough hills to make it one of the worst (challenging) runs you might do this spring.Along the way, zig-zag through town on paved & gravel roads, attack those hills and cruise to the finish in a downhill sprint before racing to the finish line and celebrating at the legendary Mt. Angel Volksfest.  Live German music, great German food, fantastic German beers and great Domestic beers. See you there!
