Mud runners in central Iowa can recycle shoes

EARLHAM, Iowa (AP) — Participants of a national mud race being held in central Iowa can donate their shoes for recycling.

USAgain, a textile recycling company, will collect used shoes at the Warrior Dash event Saturday in Earlham.

Participants of the average 5-kilometer obstacle race are encouraged to bring surplus shoes to the event or give up their muddy post-race shoes.

Organizers say the shoes can be reused and diverted from landfills.

USAgain has collected thousands of pairs of shoes at multiple Warrior Dash races around the country this year.
