Last week to sign up for Main Street’s Mayhem


FORT MADISON – This is the last week to receive the early registration rates for the most fun run of the season. Mayhem on the Mississippi is a 5K obstacle course run that will happen 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 10 a.m.
Fort Madison Main Street thanks the Jogger Sponsors, Connection Bank, Casebine Credit Union, Group Benefit Partners, Pilot Grove Savings Bank, Scotts Miracle Grow, and Edward Jones: Larry Kelch, as well as the goodie bag sponsors –  Hy-Vee and Fareway.
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. Participants can also register the day of the race. To register for the race online visit and search for Mayhem on the Mississippi. Paper forms can also be picked up at Fort Madison YMCA, Anytime Fitness, Rev Fitness, Running Wild in Burlington, and The Fort Madison Partners Office, 614 9th Street in Fort Madison.
