Sycamore 8 – 2013
December 8, 2013
Sycamore Trail in Johnston, IA
MORE DETAILS COMING SOON!
With winter inevitably approaching, why not start planning your events past “race season”? The Capital Striders Running Club has been given the honor of carrying on a Central Iowa tradition and will be hosting the 2013 Sycamore 8 Trail Run in Johnston on Dec. 1.
This 8-mile trail race will take place on the Sycamore Trail between NW 66th in Johnston and the Polk County Office on Euclid. With the perfect wintry blend of road and groomed single track trail it promises to be a messy good time. Unpredictable Midwestern weather has always given participants a unique run whether it is dealing with snow, ice, sleet or flat out rain.
Since this is a point-to-point race, all participants will need to park at the Polk County Office building at 2309 Euclid Ave and will be bused (courtesy of the Johnston School District) to the Johnston Soccer Facility on NW 66th. If you will be dropped off at the Soccer complex instead, please be aware that parking will be limited and there will be a lot of foot traffic around the parking lot. A clothing drop will be provided at the start of the race and all items will be taken back to the finish line so that you will hopefully have warm, dry clothes available at the end.
At the end of the race we will also be hosting a clothing/shoe drive for any used clothing or shoes (Men, Women and Children’s) that will be donated to Hope Ministries.
Plan on bringing the whole family to watch an event that not only promises a fun race, but unique prizes, amazing post race food and the perfect way to ring in the last month of 2013.
Age group awards ceremony will be conducted at Saints in Beaverdale, 4041 Urbandale Avenue, after the race. Join us for a chance to win prizes from our sponsors even if you don’t win an age group award.
