DES MOINES, IA (10/14/2013)(readMedia)-- The seventh annual Fairgrounds 5K will take place on Sunday, November 3, 2013 on the Iowa State Fairgrounds. Runners, joggers and walkers will have the opportunity to experience the Fairgrounds' park-like setting without the hustle and bustle of the Fair. Nothing compares to an Iowa State Fair corndog and this is your chance to enjoy one "guilt free".

The Blue Ribbon Foundation invites the entire family to participate in the afternoon's events including the 5K run, one mile walk, and the Chase the Cow Kids' Run. The entry fee price increases on October 21. Register today at www.BlueRibbonFoundation.org.

"In August, the Fairgrounds are filled with great people, music, entertainment, rides and the best food we all look forward to every year. The 5K is the perfect opportunity for Iowans to see how one of a kind our Fairgrounds are while the Fair is not going on and also support its preservation and renovation," said Peter Cownie, Blue Ribbon Foundation's new Executive Director. "I encourage all runners, walkers, and avid Fair-goers to take part in this special event."
