The inaugural "Indie Run and Kids Dash" took place Saturday morning. It consisted of a 10k and 5k run, as well as a kids dash.
The Race Director told WOWT 6 News it was a great first go, at what will hopefully be an annual July tradition in Benson.
“We had over 200 runners registered, and despite the rain, we had a wonderful showing, gave out some awesome prizes to the winners of the races. I think it was a wonderful time. You know, this was our inaugural year and we want to make this an annual event, we want this to be something the Benson and Ames community know will be taking place and know they can participate in."
The event was part of the "Benson Ames Alliance" supporting community spirit in action.
