Subject: Reminder for Frozen Foot Run and Other "Stuff"



AARC's March/St. Patrick's Frozen Foot Run will be held at 1:00 PM on Sunday, March 16 at the Somerset Club House.  As usual, bring three bucks, at least two cans of veggies (one for the stew and the rest for the food bank), and a friend.  Oh, yeah...And wear GREEN!



Upcoming Running Activities:


The VEISHEA Voyage Torch Run Committee is looking for runners to assist in the torch run, which will take place on Saturday, April 5th and Sunday, April 6th.  They plan to run torches from both the Missouri and Minnesota state lines to Ames.  The event was moved from weekdays last year to a weekend this year in the hopes that they might attract more runners.  If interested, please contact Mike Clayton NO LATER THAN MARCH 22nd.  For more information on the event and the two routes, see the attachments.

...and from Nancy Willert:

Mike, an organization in town called Krysilis is sponsoring a first ever Biathlon (Bike/Run). I know that those of us who have participated in true biathlons and true duathlons are used to a different label for such events BUT it is what it is and it should be a fun BIKE/RUN.  The event is April 26, 2008  at 1:30pm with Men’s, Women’s, Team and Youth Divisions: a 15 mile bike followed by a 5K run. Entry is $30.00 for individual and $40 for team.  There is also a Family Recreation Division which is 3.5 mile bike and 1 mile run/walk  which takes place at 3:30pm and is $15 per family. Anyone who is a Lighten up Iowa participant gets $5.00 discount on entry fee.  There will be entry forms produced soon but in the meantime should anyone have questions please call Sherry Newsome at (515)328-5520.
