Race week is here for RUNCRANDIC! Not signed up yet?! What are you waiting for??? Be sure to sign up before 11:59 CST tonight online so you don’t miss all the fun (and Bibrave18 saves you 10%).

Now that we’ve gotten the hurry up and register before you miss out on this inaugural race, here’s some things to be on the look out for this weekend!

Not quite there in terms of being ready to run? Volunteer! We’re still looking for some help in terms of packet assembly, packet pick up, aid stations, parking and traffic control. Wonder how to sign up? Take a gander at these websites. We’ll love you more for it@

The fun stuff. Some shake out runs are happening on Saturday (4/28/2018). There’s a group meeting in Cedar Rapids and from Iowa City (I have a feeling I’m going to see a lot of Kinnick Stadium this weekend). If you’re in town/local or just looking for something to do, come run with us!

The Logistics 

Packet pick up happens Friday and Saturday. Can’t make it to the expo? Someone can pick up your bib it up for you

Friday, April 27: 12:00pm-9:00pm at  Robert A. Lee Recreation Center, Iowa City

Saturday, April 28: 12:00pm-7:00pm at NewBo City Market, Cedar Rapids. Also be on the look out for the Expo (same location) with a pre race party

Sunday, April 29: NO MARATHON RACE DAY PICK UP! The half marathon pick up will start at 630 at the University of Iowa Community Credit Union. The 5K pick up starts at 730 AM at Northwest Junior High in Coralville

And what’s a race without a party! Post race party all day (or at least from 10A-6P) at Big Grove Brewery in Iowa City.

RunCRANDIC has provided some useful information for runners and spectators, as there’s good information about parking, the weekend, start times, etc.

Photos: FREE downloads available after the race (give them a few days post race to get them up). But they’re FREE!

Be sure to follow RunCRANDIC on social media. They’re providing updates on Twitter and Facebook.

New year means some new races and knocking off some new states off my half marathon state list. Considering I’m from the Midwest and spent a whole lot of years between and Ohio and Illinois, I’m surprised I haven’t made it out to Iowa for a race. That changes this year with the Run CRANDIC Half Marathon! This year is the inaugural year for this race, which makes it even more exciting.

What do you have to choose from? A 5K, Half Marathon or Full Marathon over what I hear will probably be some hills in Iowa. The Full Marathon starts in Cedar Rapids, while the Half marathon starts in North Liberty, at about the half way point of the Marathon (makes sense right?). Both end in Iowa City at Kinnick Stadium (yes, I’m an Ohio State Fan, but I’m always a fan of visiting different stadiums regardless of teams :-)). How does the race get it’s name? It Starts in Cedar Rapids and (AND) ends in Iowa City.

Since it’s a point to point race, there’s shuttles to the start (one to the half, one to the full). Be sure to get on board for this now (it’s free!) to get your spot saved! Did I mention it’s a free shuttle?!?

Be sure to follow Run CRANDIC on Facebook, IG and Twitter. Head over to the registration page to get signed up for the party and save 10% with BibRave18!
