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-mile Trail Race in Johnston on Dec. 7. 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 given participants a unique run whether it is dealing with snow, ice, sleet or flat out perfect conditions like last year.
