5K & 1/2 Marathon Runs




Thanks to all our participants, volunteers and sponsors for helping make today such a success!

Enjoy a "jewel" of a course touring the best of beautiful Grinnell, Iowa. The course is relatively flat and fast with a few rolling hills - looping through the historic downtown. It's great for spectators too! Bring your family and have them cheer you along at multiple points on the course. Race registration includes a pancake breakfast following the event. This race uses chip timing.

In an effort to help promote healthy diet and exercise for the achievement of healthy body weights to any and all community members, The 5K at Grinnell Games will be FREE this year! 

The 5K is open to all ages, abilities and speeds, and we hope to see much of our community and neighbors take advantage of this opportunity and use it as a way to kick-start your healthy journey. 

Participants should still register for all events at www.grinnellgames.comwhen signing up and use code HEALTH to receive a free 5K registration (note: if you would like an event shirt, they may be purchased through the 'Store' on the registration site). Individuals wanting to participate in a chip-timed race should register online and pay the $15 fee which will also cover an event shirt and swag bag.
