Register Now for Flood the Run in Cedar Rapids!

On August 12th, come to Ellis Park for a wet and wacky fun run benefiting two great community organizations: The Salvation Army and Matthew 25.  Flood the Run, presented by Veridian Credit Union, is a 2.7-mile fun run/walk around Ellis Park that will have participants braving a human car wash, rain tunnel, bucket toss, a Blaster Bog, fire truck hose, giant slip-n-slide, and more.   

Flood the Run Cedar Rapids
A wonderful element of the run is that 100% of the money raised goes right back into helping those in the Linn County area with all of the proceeds split between The Salvation Army and Matthew 25.  Additionally, there are many elements to bring family and friends together.  In addition to the obstacles throughout the run, there will be an activity area at the end with games like belly bumpers, splat ball, and a bouncy house.
