Come to enjoy Independence Day in Iowa Falls! The Riverbend Rally 5K/8K and kids 1K kicks off a full day of activities on July 4th. This may be the last year for the traditional courses for Riverbend Rally. Both 5K and 8K courses have beautiful views of the Iowa River along paved, tree-lined roads. The courses will be the same as previous years, a challenging mix of hills and flats. Awards are given to the top 3 finishers in each age group. The race will be chip timed. Showers are available after the race in the Dale Howard Family Activity Center (bring your own towel and toiletries).
All proceeds from the race go to the Hardin County Recreational Trails for development of trails throughout Iowa Falls. Currently, work is being carried out on a new section of trail from Rock Run Elementary through North Park to Cadet Field.
Online registration is $25. Online registration will close at midnight on Tuesday, June 19 After that, you may register on race day between 7:00 and 7:45 at the Dale Howard Family Activity Center. Race day registration will be $30. We can not guarantee a shirt for race day registrations.
This is the 3rd race in the 8th annual Miles of Smiles Summer Race Series. Learn more here
