We celebrate 30 years of Fourth of July Races in Cedar Rapids for 2015. Our feature event, the Health Solutions 8k Race drew racers from 32 states & five countries last year.
Experience a festival of races with the Fifth Season!
There is an event for everyone in the family, encompassing all age groups. Our races include: the Health Solutions 8K Race, the 5th Season 5K Run/Walk, Kids’ Fun Runs & the Youth Mile Run.
We’ll see finisher’s medals all around The Corridor on July 4th!
Bring the whole family, enjoy the race, take in the Downtown Farmer’s Market & the pancake breakfast. Don’t forget the post race party brought to you by Miller Lite.
Show off your medal & enjoy a Cedar Rapids 4th of July tradition.
Get in shape before the 4th of July with our training runs. Join the crew every Thursday at 6:00 pm as a part of the NewBo District “Meet Me at the Market” event.
We Love Volunteers!
Every year nearly 250 people jump in to help make the Fifth Season Races a great community event. Share your talents by volunteering. Many different options are available, where you can meet great people, make the race a success, and help others reach their goals.
