A new route is planned for this year’s Klompen Classic. This year is the 20th anniversary of the race that kicks off Tulip Time, and Crossroads of Pella, the organization that puts the run on wanted to change up the route for the occasion. Last year over 2,300 people entered the race. Jim Hibma, Crossroad’s Director, says that when the race first started they had about 200 entrants, and its grown little by little each year. Hibma says that the 5k makes up about 20% of Crossroad’s total budget for the year. The race will be held on May 1st this year.
