RiverRun to celebrate 29th year, impressive participation expected

The University of Iowa’s 29th annual RiverRun is Sunday, April 27th.  The race begins at 9 a.m. at the IMU.  You can participate individually or with your friends by signing up for the 5k team competition.  Children ages 2-8 can participate in the Hawkeye Hustle which begins at 10:30.  After the race, local vendors will be present at the Fitness Fair in Hubbard Park. Visit the RiverRun Web page to signup, www.uiowa.edu/~riverrun

If you are unable to participate in the race RiverRun is also looking for volunteers on race day. Check out the RiverRun Web site or call 319-335-3846 for more information on registration and volunteering for the race.

Last year almost 1,500 people ran along the River and though Iowa City for this great cause.  The RiverRun Executive Committee is aiming for an even greater participation this year.

University of Iowa RiverRun is a 5k run/walk/wheelchair & 10K run/wheelchair race.  All proceeds of the race will benefit Uptown Bill’s Small Mall, which is a collection of businesses owned and operated by people with disabilities.

For any questions please feel free to contact Jess Cole (Executive Director) at iowa.riverrun@gmail.com or 319-325-0608.
