The Gals & Guys 4-H Club Corn Carnival 5K Race, 2 Mile Walk Competition & Kid’s Fun Run was held Saturday morning, June 23rd. This is the 7th year the club has organized the event and it’s grown each year. This year we had 100 entries. The race has a reputation of being challenging because of the climb up 6th street, the 3 block climb up Johnston street, and the climb out of the fair grounds. The race starts at the school and winds through town but also includes a stretch of Wolf Creek Trail. 4-H club members and their families lined the route, monitored street corners and encouraged the walk/run participants. The following local businesses made the race possible with their generous monetary donations which helped cover the cost of the race T-shirts & awards: Gold level race sponsors are Grundy County Memorial Hospital & Covenant Clinic-Gladrook. Silver level sponsors are Brenda’s Bulldozing, Casey’s General Store, Gethmann Construction, Inc., Livingston Law Office & Tama County Pork Producers. Bronze level sponsors are B&G HVAC, Goos Implement, LTD, RJ’s Hideaway. Gladbrook Hometown Foods donated bottled water for the runners and walkers. Keith and JoAnn Sash provided the club with a portable microphone. Thank you sponsors for you support! We couldn’t provide this popular, positive community activity without you. Thanks to all 100 race participants. Runners and walkers ranged in age from age 6 to 65 and were from as far away as Portland, Oregon. Following are the race results: The 2 mile walk competition was well attended. The aim of the walk competition is to estimate how long it will take to walk 2 miles.
