      Join us on June 23rd for the 2018  'Running on Empty' Geode Challenge, a series of trail runs in beautiful Geode State Park hosted by the Friends of Geode. The Geode Challenge consists of 5k and 10+K trail runs with awards going to the top 3 competetors in male and female catagories for both events. The 10+K run will be a full loop around the lake trail. A 10+K ruck run will take place as well, with a 35lb. ruck weight minimum and awards going to the top 3 competetors in male and female catagories. The 10+K run will be a full loop around the lake trail. Ruck runners can pack non-perishable food items that will be donated to local charities after the event.  All registrants will recieve an event T-Shirt and a finishers medal, as well as a goody bag. Anyone registering after May 31st can pick up their T-Shirt at a time and location to be determined on the day of the event or mailed for a fee of $3.00. Bananas, granola bars and water will be provided to all runners and their guests as well as manned waterstations along the course. Registration for the races is from 6:30 am to 7:30 am and races start at 8 am. Parking for the event, the running races and all other activities will be held at the beach shelter area, and the races will begin and end in front of the beach area. The races will be run rain or shine. Tickets are $25 until May 19th, $30 May 20th - June 22nd and $35 on the day of the race at registration.  The Family Fun Day that will be held after the races will include children's activities, demonstrations, face painting, crafts, an auction and food. Hosted by the Friends of Geode, the event will serve as a fundraiser for the Concession Renovation Project. All proceeds will go towards restoring the former beach concession building at Geode State Park to provide non-motorized rentals, food and supplies for beachgoers and campers. This promises to be a fun event for all ages in support of a great local cause that will benefit all Southeast Iowa residents and visitors.
