Get Ready to Lace Up Your Running Shoes
Ready, Set, GROW! The IAA Foundation presents its 6th annual 5K Grow & Go to celebrate Illinois farm families and the important role they play in putting food on your table. Learn more about our roots in agriculture while supporting a great cause! Proceeds from this race beneﬁt Illinois Agriculture in the Classroom, a program providing free resources to teachers in an effort to help students make the connection between food, ﬁber, fuel & farming.
This accurately measured course has a cross-country feel with well-maintained grass, pavement and a few rolling hills. Finishing times and results are provided by the Lake Run Club of Bloomington/Normal. Pre-registrants receive a T-shirt and a healthy, hot breakfast after the race.
Fun For All Ages
Join us for the 1/4 mile Cock-a-Doodle Dash, sponsored by the IAA Credit Union, for children 10 & under. All participants win an award and then move indoors for breakfast!
Something For Everyone
