The Omaha World Herald features upcoming events in their weekly  “Beer Runs and Rides” section, thanks for that.  With that impetus we have decided to offer adult beverages at our 2019 Two Rivers Winter Fitness Series.  Taking a little nip to hold off the cold, not a bad idea after all.

The Rust Buster 5K kicks off our 2019 Two Rivers Winter Fitness Series on January 5th.  10:00 am start.   In addition to the USATF Certified and Sanctioned run we will offer our famous home made participation awards, baked goodies, official times, door prizes, closed road course, hot chocolate, and now kahlua, schnapps, and more.  Perfect for first timers, those with New year’s Resolutions, or serious runners looking to test their fitness.  Low $20 entry fee.  Probst!  https://www.active.com/waterloo-ne/running/distance-running-races/rust-buster-5k-2019?int=
