Course & Awards

The 5K fun-run is challenging enough to satisfy experienced runners, but not too difficult for new runners. It is hilly, has two water stations, and starts and finishes near the Coralville Recreation Center. Parking is available across the street at Northwest Junior High School. Maps are available at the Coralville Recreation Center. View 5K route
