Registration Open for 14th Annual RUNorwalk 8K or 5K Race

It is time to register for the Norwalk Area Chamber of Commerce 14th Annual RUNorwalk 8K or 5K Race in Norwalk, IA on May 10, 2014. This year's race will feature a new Out and Back course. Cash prizes and medals will be awarded to the top 3 overall winners and medals will be awarded to the winners in each age group. Runners' times will be tracked with chip timers. RUNorwalk has been using chip timers longer than most other races. They provide a very accurate race time for participants.

Events this year include am 8K and 5K run, a 5K walk and a free fun run for children 8 and under. Participants in the 5K walk can chose to be timed. Runners who turn in their registrations prior to May 2nd will receive a t-shirt and discounted fees. Runners can register right up to the day of the event, however. There will be food and entertainment at the event and spectators are encouraged to attend. Last year 123 runners participated in the 8K race and 98 runners participated in the 5K race. 35 walkers were timed in the 5K walk. The very popular Isiserette Drill and Drum Corp will be back this year to get the runners charged up.

Everyone is encouraged to bring a canned, non-perishable food item for the Norwalk Food Pantry. A portion of the registration proceeds will also benefit the group.
