Beto in the Running, a 5K, in Iowa

Saturday, 16 March 2019 02:14 PM

Presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke is going the distance in Iowa — taking it on the run Saturday in a 5K road race.

The Texas Democrat finished the run in North Liberty in about 25 minutes. He said he was on pace for a slower, 40-minute time in the roughly 3-mile race but began chatting about health care with a fellow runner, kept pace with him and finished faster.

Before the race, many runners posed for pictures or asked if O'Rourke was a regular runner — he frequently jogs — but there was little talk of politics.

The former congressman entered the 2020 presidential race Thursday after months of speculation. He has four Iowa events scheduled Saturday.
