Slippery Saints Mud Run - Saturday August 30th

Please consider Volunteers or consider getting muddy! 

Run a 5k. In the mud. With obstacles.  Just like Mom told you not to do.  The Slippery Saints Mud Run is where the action and adventure is!  With a twist of heavenly good and devilish fun, you have our permission to participate in “Altar Boy’s Revenge”, “The Inquisition”, “The Baptism”, “Dante’s Hell” obstacles and more.  You can ask for forgiveness later.  At the beer tent.

It all happens on Saturday, August 30, 2014. Our mud run is located at the North Iowa Events Center in Mason City, Iowa.  So wear your favorite costume if you want, whether it is the devil’s horns or an angelic halo, but be prepared to have fun!  Live band "Stream
of Consciousness" (noon to 3:00 pm) and Mojo's DJ service will be playing music throughout the day at our beer tent.

Support Local Events!

Pippa Competes the Race Across America (RAM)

Tired but elated, Pippa Middleton (sister of Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge) was all smiles yesterday as she completed the Race Across America.
          Pippa, 30, crossed the finish line just after 3am in Annapolis, Maryland, following six days, ten hours, fifty-four minutes and 3,000 miles.
          She was the only woman on the team that also included her brother James. “I was talked into this by most of the boys, and particularly by James,” she stated.  “I found cycling at night quite intimidating. There were a few nights when we came across snakes, skunks and deer.”
          Pippa and her team were raising money for the British Heart Foundation – which has appointed her as an ambassador – and The Michael Matthews Foundation, named after a British adventurer who died in 1999, aged 22, on Mount Everest.  It provides education to children who wouldn't otherwise receive one.

People For Bikes

You might have heard of PeopleForBikes. They are a national movement making riding better for everyone, and they've given us a challenge: if we can get 10,000 bicyclists to become free members of PeopleForBikes, they will give $10,000 to the Iowa Bicycle Coalition on PeopleForBikes Day during RAGBRAI. Seriously. Sign the form at, ask a few friends to do the same, and help us make bicycling better for everyone. People For Bikes is a charitable giving foundation funded by the bicycle industry.

PeopleForBikes Day on RAGBRAI will be Wednesday, July 23 - Hump Day in Mason City. Wouldn’t it be great to see that $10,000 check on the stage in downtown Mason City?
