Join us Saturday, August 16, for the inaugural Run the Bases 5K/10K!

All proceeds benefit Build Our Ballpark, a local nonprofit committed to providing the assistance and rallying the support needed to build new ballparks and/or improve existing ballparks to ensure kids have a quality place to play.  This one-of-a-kind event, hosted by the Cedar Valley SportsPlex, will include Race Day activities for athletes of all ages and abilities.

The Kids Fun Run will be about 1 mile long – and families can join, too! The race will begin at 8:00 a.m., and all participants will receive a certificate of completion.  The 5K and 10K races will take off together at 8:30 a.m. Runners will round first, second and third bases along the way, and touch home plate at the finish line!

Prizes are as follows: 1st place overall male and female for the 5K and 10K will receive a plaque and $300 in cash and prizes.  Second place overall male and female for the 5K and 10K will receive $150 in cash and prizes.  Third place overall male and female for the 5K and 10K will receive $50 in cash and prizes.  The top three males and females in the age groups below for the 5K and 10K will receive medals; 15 & under, 16-19, 20-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, 70+.

Those who register by July 31 are guaranteed a Run the Bases 5K/10K T-shirt!  In addition to the races, there will be vendors on-site with food, drinks, giveaways, raffles and more!  Plus, kids can play on the indoor turf and playground!  The bases are loaded…now let’s hit a grand slam!
