For the 21st consecutive year, the Wednesday evening before Tulip Time will draw a crowd in downtown Pella for the Klompen Classic. Crossroads Director Jim Hibma tells KNIA/KRLS that at 6pm, the free kids run for ages ten and under will start near West Market Park and go to the Post Office. Then at 7pm is the Klompen Classic, a 5k walk/run through Pella. Hibma says last year was very successful with 2,409 participants, a number they would like to exceed this year. He adds that they already have over 1,000 runners registered, and you can register up to the day of the race, although it is an extra $5 if you sign up on the 30th.
