Event Information

It’s a race that’s been run by collegiate All Americans, NCAA Champions, Olympians and the winner of the Boston Marathon. This race is the longest running 8k in the USA and has awarded more prize money than any other 8k race in the country. Summer in Iowa isn’t complete without Fourth of July traditions: warm humid weather, spitting seeds from home grown watermelon and watching fireworks blazing the skies with family and friends. Add to the list – the CVRA 5th Season Race. All Races are held on July 4th. The day starts with the Health Sources 8K which is the Iowa State championship 8K. 15 minutes later the 5K starts. The events end with the youth mile and Kid's Fun Run. The 5th Season Races have shined brilliantly from its’ first year and has become a rocket of enthusiasm, family fun, community involvement and fast times ever since.
