People Run In Iowa City Costume Race
IOWA CITY, Iowa - For the first time in Iowa City, people suited up in their costumes and took to the streets in a race. Organizers held the first ever Iowa Avenue 2K costume race, Sunday afternoon.
The race was expected to bring in more than 200 runners. People raced down Iowa Ave. and back to downtown. Two events took place today, one a competitive race, the other a youth and family run.
"It's just a good family activity, kind of a fun community thing to do so thought it beats sitting at home on the couch," Racer Todd Shields said.
In addition to medals and awards, more than $1,800 was given away in cash and gift cards to downtown stores. West Bank sponsored today's race.
