OUR 21ST ANNUAL TIMBER CITY ADVENTURE RACE HAS BEEN POSTPONED. Our Timber City Adventure Race Committee has been monitoring the ongoing situation with COVID-19, and the guidance provided by the CDC, Iowa Dept of Public Health, and our City and County health officials. It was a difficult decision to make, but at this time, we do not feel it is responsible to move forward and put the safety of our participants, volunteers, and residents of our community at risk. We have decided to postpone our 21st Timber City Adventure Race until we are able to better ensure that we can hold the event safely. Please continue to watch for updates here and on, and we thank you for your continued support and participation.
