Runners and joggers have the opportunity to experience a 5K race like no other. The 10th annual Fairgrounds 5K, presented by West Bank, will take place on Saturday, August 20 at the Iowa State Fairgrounds. The route will take you down the Grand Concourse, through the hills of the Campgrounds, and along Rock Island. You’ll see food vendors, campers, and livestock on your adventure across the Fairgrounds - all while supporting the Blue Ribbon Foundation’s work.
The timed race is open to runners of all ages. Awards will be given to winners in different age groups and to the overall male and female runners. Start time is scheduled for 7:00 a.m. Click here for the 2016 Race Route.
