About This Activity

5th Annual Coach Lynn 5k Memorial Run

This year marks the 5th Anniversary of the Coach Lynn 5k Memorial Run as well as 10 years since the last year of Coach Lynn's tenure at ISU. Over the past 2 years we have found a great home for this event at Veenker Memorial Golf Course and the Moore Park running trail. Since the first year of the run, we have started a Memorial Foundation, yearly fundraising, and added a scholarship for graduating Iowa High School seniors. Join us this September 10th, 2017 to compete, have fun and celebrate Coach Steve Lynn's legacy and love of track, family, and friends. 

We will have the Kid's Run to start the day off, with the course going around the practice green. Age limit for the Kid's Run will be 10 years old. 

The 5k Run/Walk will follow the Kid's Run at Moore Park right next door to Veenker. You are welcome to compete as an individual either running or walking, strollers and dogs are welcome. You can also make a 3 person "Snickers Relay Team". If you are unaware of what a Snickers Relay is, we will post a video to the Coach Lynn Facebook Page linked below. Relay teams need not be submitted in registration, and can be handled day of the race.

Group photo and breakfast will follow the races, so please stick around.

Proceeds and donations from the race go to the Coach Lynn Memorial Scholarship. Each year $1,000 will be awarded to 1 male and female athlete graduating from an Iowa High School.
