BCHF Hosts Annual Duathlon/5k/10k
In early May, the Boone County Hospital (BCH) Foundation hosted its fifth, and final, Duathlon/5k/10k event. Over 70 people participated in this year's event coming from as far as four hours away. The duathlon kicked off at 8 a.m. with a 2-mile run followed by a 13-mile bike ride, and then a 2-mile run to finish. The 5k and 10k started at 10 a.m. with both races starting and finishing at Boone County Hospital. Thank you to True Time Racing for the digital chip timing.
The BCH Foundation has decided they will not host this event again for a number of reasons, but mainly due to the rising number of races in the area, plus the logistics involved in hosting a safe bike race in town. The BCH Foundation had a wonderful five years with this event and appreciate the volunteers, sponsors and collective 400 participants who have traveled from all over Iowa.
Watch for a fun, new event in 2014!
