Mayhem On The Mississippi

Written by Theresa Rose on March 12, 2018

Fort Madison Main Street hosts Mayhem on the Mississippi, a 5K obstacle course run on May 5th! The run will take place in Rodeo Park in Fort Madison. This run is far from typical! Runners will conquer an inflatable obstacle course, jump though tires, and slide to a finish among other great obstacles! Don’t worry these obstacles are meant to be fun rather than challenging, all are optional.  All ages are welcome we have registrants ranging from 7 to 64 years old. The race begins at 10AM.

The first 25 registered runners will receive a ticket into Faeth’s Main Street BBQ, which will be held on May 12th in downtown Fort Madison. This great event allows patrons to try different barbeque from a variety of vendors! Thank you to our Jogger Sponsors, Connection Bank, Casebine Credit Union, Group Benefit Partners, Pilot Grove Savings Bank, and Edward Jones: Larry Kelch!

Registration before April 20th for the race is $20 and includes a t-shirt and refreshments. After April 20th, the registration fee increases to $25 and does not guarantee a t-shirt.
