Where do I get my timer?

Race Day Questions

What happens if it rains?

RiverRun will take place rain or shine! If there is thunder or lightening participants will be moved inside until we have the all clear from law enforcement or until we decide to cancel the race. Be prepared with rain gear and layers as it may be a bit chilly (when you are not running of course).

If the race is cancelled from rain will I be reimbursed? 

Unfortunately, if the event is cancelled we will not be able to offer reimbursements.

Where can I find updates the morning of the race? 

Twitter or Facebook! Follow us on Twitter @UIowa_RiverRun and like our Facebook page @uiowariverrun for race day updates.

Parking is available in the IMU N Madison St ramp at the standard rate. Visit https://transportation.uiowa.edu/content/standard-cashiered-rate for parking costs. Free parking is available in the Hancher Auditorium parking lot on the other side of the river.
