The American Cheese Society Hosts the Run for Cheese Party 5k
It's the first annual Run For the Cheese Party 5k! This race will be taking place in the streets of Des Moines, Iowa — host to the 2016 American Cheese Society conference, the annual meeting of minds, and celebration of all things turophilic from across the North American cheese world.
After eating, discussing, living, and breathing cheese for three days, there's nothing you want to do more than put on your running shoes and make a mad dash for the finish line, right? Who is the fastest curd nerd in town? Whose wheel has the fastest roll? Only one way to find out!
And every step you take helps a great cause, with all proceeds going to the Daphne Zepos Teaching Award and the American Cheese Education Foundation. Even if you didn't attend the ACS conference, you can still register for the 5k or even support the efforts of a cheese runner by donating.
Show your love of cheese and score some sweet cheese-themed race swag.
Costumes welcome! There might even be a special prize for the best cheese-themed get-up so start sewing your cheese mite mascot outfit today!
We know you love your home at Equitable Apartments in Des Moines, Iowa, but it’s important to stay active and involved in your community. Attending this event is the perfect chance for you to journey outside your comfort zone to meet new people and seek new opportunities.
