With the coming of the annual Fasnacht celebration comes an all new event held in Helvetia, Joggen Schlagen. This event is held the first Week in March at the Helvetia General Store just on the outskirts of town. Joggen Schlagen is a race where competitors run a race through a dangerous maze full of twists, turns, traps, and perils that spans multiple, underground shelters. Competitors can work together to make it through obstacles or work against one another to ensure that they are the first one to the Fertig, or the finish and claim the Vergeben (the prize)!
Joggen Schlagen is a multi-day, bracketed event. Competitors have to compete in multiple races over the course of a month. The event allows up to 6 competitors at a time and the top 3 from each race will advance to the next race.. Competitors are asked to congregate in the lobby area of the Joggen Schlagen event shelter before the race begins. Before the doors open to the Joggen Schlagen a buzzer will be blared to alert competitors to take the starting positions at either entrance door. Once the doors are open competitors are free to run the Joggen Schlagen, which spans three different shelters. The first 3 competitors to reach the Fertig, or the finish, will be the winners of Joggen Schlaggen and advance to the next race. The final race will award the first 3 with prizes.
