The Live Healthy Iowa 5K event debuted in 2014, partnering with Iowa communities to provide a fun, healthy 5K run/walk and 1K kid's run. This past year, 18 Iowa communities (see below) hosted the nearly 1,200 walkers and runners who committed to get moving on race day. Live Healthy Iowa is seeking Community Hosts for 2020!
Historically, the event has been held in April to commemorate the end of the 10 Week Wellness Challenge, however, the 2020 event will be held on Saturday, September 19. Also, this year Live Healthy Iowa is accepting applications from communities interested in hosting a Live Healthy Iowa 5K. Host communities do receive a portion of the proceeds from the event to support local wellness efforts. Community applications are due Friday, December 20. Selected event locations will be announced on Monday, January 13, 2020. For more information please contact Nicole.
