Five people with Marshall County ties will compete Saturday in virtual runs rather than wait until September for the Bill Snyder Highway Half & 5K. The races were postponed until September because of COVID-19. 

Jessica Leis, Marysville, Abby Tormundson, Home City, and Danielle Hubbard, Blue Rapids, have been training together to run the half marathon with Jori Latta, Marysville, who will run the 5K. Leis’ brother, Trevor Taphorn, who lives in Indiana, will run the half.
