IOWA CITY– The North Liberty Steering Committee of the Iowa City Area Chamber of Commerce presents the ninth annual North Liberty Fun Run/Walk to be held on Sunday, Sept. 16. Sponsored by MidWestOne Bank, the event features a 5k route and children’s race. The race starts at 650 W. Cherry St. near the gazebo at Liberty Centre. Registration begins at 8:15 a.m. with the children’s race beginning at 9 a.m. followed by the 5k at 9:15 a.m.
Returning from the 2011 run is the competition for the Fast Feet Firefighting. The North Liberty Fire Department has issued a friendly challenge to surrounding fire departments to participate in the Fun Run in full firefighting gear. Firefighters who do so race free.
This year, proceeds will support the American Heart Association. As in past years, the committee will also award $100 to the North Liberty school that recruits the most participants.
Prizes will be awarded for the fastest male and female runners as well as all participants in costume. Registration is $15 the day of the race. Children under the age of 12 race for free. Children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult.
