About This Activity

Race to raise money for Cedar Rapids Special Olympics athletes! Join us for a 5K Race and 1M Fun Run/Walk through Seminole Valley Park and Usher's Ferry. Our run/walk route is cross country style - a mix of gravel and dirt roads. Enjoy the scenery as the path leads you into the sunset and along the Cedar River. End the night at our Sunset Send-off - a post-race celebration with food, drink, and live entertainment!

All proceeds benefit the Cedar Rapids Parks and Recreation Department Special Olympics program. Additional options to Sponsor an Athlete are available.
