Another fun fall Cedar Valley tradition has gone "virtual" for this year's event.

As we get ready to observe Veteran's Day on November 11th, the Grout Museum District is now taking registrations for the virtual Sullivan Brothers Veterans Memorial 5K/10K to be held Friday-Sunday, October 23-25. The Grout Museum District's website explains that "the Sullivan Brothers Races are a memorial for those, like the Sullivan Brothers, who have given their lives in service to our country, and a celebration of the veterans who served our country and returned home. Proceeds from the races benefit the Sullivan Brothers Iowa Veterans Museum which honors the service and sacrifice of Iowa veterans from the Civil War to the present through oral histories and exhibitions."

As with pretty much all events this year, due to COVID-19 concerns, the race this year will be virtual. There is a $30 entry fee that includes a t-shirt. T-shirts will be mailed the week after the race. Here's the best part, print your registration receipt and present it at Singlespeed Brewery to receive one pint of beer on October 23, 24 or 25.
