IMBCS enjoys a return Fall visit on October 4th to the beautiful Lake Ahquabi State Park south of Indianola, Iowa for the The Mullet Fall Classic. Hosted by Bruce Brown, and Bob Matthews - the 2015 version will be the 8th time Lake Ahquabi has been a part of the IMBCS. New for this year is also a Trail Runners Race at 9:30 AM!! Back is the Marathon, special FAT BIKE race, Kids Race, Chip Timing, Pot Luck, Beer Garden, and of course - the Post Race Party.
The 6.5 mile loop includes a trip around Lake Ahquabi’s multi-use trail with additional sections that include backwood trails. You will encounter gravel, dirt, roots, ruts, grass, logs, wooden bridges, climbs, fast descents, and the best nature has to offer on this scenic course. The loop will be the perfect test of one’s fitness with all of the full throttle speed and all of the climbing, but will not be technical in nature to scare off the entry level racer. In fact, this will be a perfect venue for first timers and experts alike. Come and join the fun!
