The Klompen Classic 5K is renowned in Iowa as one of the first great spring races and has become a celebrated event. The Klompen Classic 5K is a race with a purpose. Revenues support the many programs of Crossroads where hope and help are offered to thousands of people in our community who need a place to turn. The route begins and ends on Pella’s quaint town square with the 5K race route and makes its way through the Dutch community showcasing windmills, hundreds of varieties of tulips and Dutch food vendors. In 2015 2,400 runners and walkers join in the fun.
