If you enjoy farm scenery this is the run for you. We start in Osage Iowa and head out of town to Mitchell to see the scenic dam. Continue onward to see the cows, corn, windmills and pigs into St. Ansgar's Main Street. If you look closely you will see the town's albino deer. The marathon begins at 6:30 AM with the half marathon following at 7:00 AM and the 10K at 7:15 AM. The start location is First Citizens Bank (501 Main St, Osage, IA 50461--North parking lot). All of the races (marathon, half marathon, 10K, 5k) are out and back.
