Iowa Able Run UPDATE:
Due to severe weather in the forecast, we have decided to move the event to SportsIowa Indoor Sports, Ames, IA. Because of the change of location, we will no longer be able to offer the competitive runs. We will still offer the kids run (starting at 8:30) and a non-competitive 2.5k fun run/walk, as well as many free vendors (bounce house, DJ, cotton candy, photo booth, balloon animals, massages, snacks, etc) and our silent auction (over 50 amazing baskets!). While we are sad that the weather isn’t cooperating, we are happy to have a second location to be able to offer a lot of free family fun on what looks to be a very rainy Saturday. We would love to open this up to the public as a free event to all so please tell your friends and family. When life hands us lemons we will make lemonade! We will continue with packet pick up tonight at Tropical Smoothie from 4-7 and anyone who can’t make it tonight can pick up tomorrow at the event.
Again we are so sorry the weather isn’t in our favour but we look forward to seeing everyone tomorrow at SportsIowa at 2176 232 Ln, Ames, IA 50014 (west on highway 30)!
