Race Day Events

5K Team Competition
This event allows teams of up to 5 runners/walkers to enjoy the race together. UI Student Teams must be made up of majority UI students to be considered for the discounted "UI Student Team" price. (ex. A team of 3 non-students and 2 UI students would be charged the regular "Team" price.) Team check-in will be at the registration table on race day. Decide on a team name and register online before April 13th!
The awards ceremony will take place at 10:00am. An announcement will be made prior to the ceremony.
University of Iowa Students: RiverRun will be partnering with a program ran by Student Health & Wellness in the spring to coordinate with students who are looking to train for the RiverRun 5K, improve their running abilities, or get more active! Captains will lead teams of all running abilities in this fun and exciting training program. The program will be free to participate in and encourages students of all skill levels to join!
