Press Release 17-094 Marines host 18th annual Volkslauf 10k Fun Run on post Saturday

Preparations are in full swing for the 18th annual Volkslauf 10k Fun Run, which is set to take place Saturday on Fort Leonard Wood.

Held each year by the U.S. Marine Corps Detachment, the Volkslauf has been described as “an extreme” 10k, covering terrain ranging from blacktop to steep, rocky hills, heavily wooded trails, mud pits and water crossings.

This year’s race will also feature something several of last year’s runners asked for: more man-made obstacles.
