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.
Each year, the chamber’s North Liberty steering committee donates back to the community through a worthy organization. This year the committee will be supporting the American Heart Association. As in past years, the committee will also award $100 to the North Liberty school that recruits the most participants.
Pre-registration ends Sept. 6 and includes a free event T-shirt. After Sept. 6, participants should register the day of the event. Fun Run T-shirts will not be available on the day of the race, so pre-registration is encouraged. To register online visit www.iowacityarea.com . Or, download a registration form and mail it to:
