Participants of the Maple Leaf Walk Run will have a unique experience- running on the famous Oktoberfest Parade Route just hours before it is full of marching bands, floats and the Oktoberfest Royal Family.
Enjoy 13.1 scenic miles of the Mississippi River, majestic bluffs and the support of spectators along the parade route. The course is flat and fast, easy to set a personal best on. The finish is in Riverside Park, overlooking the Mississippi River.

In 2010, Leah ran her first 5K, praying just to finish. One year later, after breaking her back in a motorcycle accident, she ran the 5K again and placed third in her age category. Another year later, Leah placed first in that 5K. The next day she completed her first half marathon, and started riding her Indian Scout motorcycle again! She's now completed eight full marathons and a half Ironman.She counted on the Y to help her achieve success. " I really appreciate the Y's financial assistance I received after my accident that allowed me to be physically active and maintain a healthy lifestyle."
