Cheeseletes In Person & Virtual 5K

Virtual Event

Mon 17th July 2023 - Fri 21st July 2023

2 races

Organiser's Description

The Cheeseletes are so excited for our eighth annual 5k, as well as being back in the city where it all began, Des Moines, Iowa!  Just like last year, we are doing an in person and a virtual 5k to accommodate anyone and everyone.  Either pick the In-person race if you are attending the ACS Conference or choose virtual and run with us in spirit. But like every year, we are all in this together!  The in-person race will be held Friday, July 21st, with a race start time of 7:30 am.  The virtual race will be held July 17-21st and competition is on your terms.
As with all of our events, funds raised will go to cheese education and enrichment.  Our eighth annual 5k will donate 75% of monies towards our Back in the Vat Grant and 25% towards the American Cheese Education Foundation.  Our Back in the Vat Grant allows American cheese professionals to participate in an all-expenses paid in-person educational experience, up to $2000 each, with Uplands Cheese, Jasper Hill or Antonelli's Cheese Shop. Applications launched this year!  Click this link to find out more and how you can apply.  The more money we raise, the more in-person opportunities we can sponsor for the growing cheese community!  
We will have contests like best kaastume and team spirit, and will be dishing out prizes. We will also be doing another Custom Ink Swag Campaign and details on the design are in the works.   Stay connected via Facebook and Instagram to get the latest updates on the event, contests, prizes, and much more.
