Mt. Ayr to Host Live Healthy Iowa 5K Run/Walk Event April 12

Mount Ayr is one of ten locations chosen to host a Live Healthy Iowa (LHI) 5K run/walk event on April 12. Mount Ayr will be the only host site within a 75-mile area in SW Iowa. The event starts at 8 AM and will be followed by a Kids 1K event at 9 AM.

A local wellness coalition is working on plans to give participants more than their average 5K experience. They want it to be an event that challenges seasoned runners to reach a personal best, yet friendly for beginning level runners and walkers. There will be post-race festivities, food, and an awards ceremony immediately following.

The 5K event follows the LHI 10-Week Wellness Challenge which runs from January 27-April 4.   Participants in the 10-week challenge receive a $10 discount on entry to the LHI 5K. To register or for more information, go to:  Locally please contact Karen Bender,  Mount Ayr Chamber of Commerce with questions.
