Two Men Finishing 99-County Marathon in Delaware County

Two eastern Iowa men will accomplish a long-running goal in Delaware County this weekend.

Daren Schumaker of Cedar Rapids and Dennis Lee of Walford set out in 2009 to run marathons in each of Iowa’s 99 counties.

Their route on Saturday will start shortly before 9 am west of Masonville.

The goal was to raise at least 250 dollars in each Iowa county – and they have nearly reached their goal for Delaware County. If you’d like to help donate to their cause and support the American Heart Association, you can send your donation to PO Box 268 Walford, Iowa 52351 or check out their page Team 99 Counties on Facebook.
