Can You 'Beat Beethoven'?


By KMVT Staff

Twin Falls, Idaho (KMVT-TV) Sweet sounds of Beethoven filled the air along the Canyon Rim Saturday morning in Twin Falls.

The challenge was could you run a 5-K in the time it takes to play Beethoven's 5th symphony. Otherwise it's 30 minutes. And some actually did.

The race benefits Arts Educational Outreach Efforts of the Magic Valley Arts Council.

Carolyn White, organizer for the event says, "for our first time in ever doing this event, we are very pleased with our turnout."

Some did beat Beethoven and even a Beethoven look–a–like also took the action and greeted racers as they crossed the finish line.
