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. Race starts and finishes at the new Usher's Ferry Lodge.  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 entertainment!

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

For further information, please contact Rob Wagner at (319) 286-5799 or by email at r.wagner@cedar-rapids.org. Thank you!
