About This Activity

This event is organized by Partners in Education which is the parent organization for GMG Elementary School in Green Mountain, Iowa.  Our organization is trying to raise money for a safer playground covering at the school.  100% of the proceeds are directed to the Playground Resurfacing Fund.  If you can't participate in the event, donations can be sent to Partners in Education, 1710 Wallace Ave., Green Mountain, IA 50632.  The road race is a very challenging yet scenic course.  It contains one large hill and several smaller hills as it winds it way around Union Grove Lake in beautiful Union Grove State Park.  Come and enjoy the challenge and the view!
