Running in tutu's, with Santa Claus and beauty queens

Posted:

URBANDALE (KWWL)--Thousands of people gathered in Iowa this weekend for a good cause. They also got cold, dirty, winded, wet and a little outrageous along the way.

''They prayed for rain, or snow, so they could run through that, the ickier the better,'' said Lori Hunt of Waverly.

The 30th annual Living History Farms Race took place in Urbandale Saturday with 7,500 signed up to run.

Runners from 40 states and four different countries took part in the race dressing up in tutu's to beauty queens and even Santa clause showed up.

Over the past 10 years, the race has raised more than 240,00 dollars for the Living History Farms Museum.
