Freezin for a reason -5k / 10K trail run - March
Cold , chilly but such a worthy cause! This will be our 6th annual run!
Our 5k/ 10k run will be held on March 7th, 2020.Registration needs to be received by February 18th 2020 to receive a long sleeve shirt.
This will be our first combination run , our 9th annual 5k has been moved (from October ) to incorporate it with our 6th annual 10k run, as our 10Mile / 50K run in October date has moved to the beginning of that month.
We will have a 10am start time , and have a no one left behind mindset , in case there are any walkers. Shirt and BIB pick up will be from 8:30am to 9:45 am on March 7th,at the trail. On site registration will be during the same time.
We also pick a movie out - write down quotes and place on the trail so that you may read them as you run - try to guess what the movie is and correct guesses go in a drawing for a Pizza Hut gift card !
This trail run will be held on the Old Creamery Trail located just on the south side of the town of Garrison , IA. The trail is an old railroad track system that has been renovated with a nice gravel finish. It has some trees on either side of the trail helping to keep the wind factor reduced. Benton County Park and Rec maintain it nicely, in the winter time snowmobiles utilize it and if there is snow on the trail it will either be packed in or natural (depending on the weather prior to the race). It is an out and back run which will start at Garrison and head towards the town of Vinton 5k, turn and head back to the finish in Garrison. There is a water stop part of the way out so that all runners may use it from both directions. Also as with our other runs we will provide refreshments and food post race as a Thank You for your support in fighting hunger!
