Virtual Race Participant Information


RUN CRANDIC powered by GreenState Credit Union is a unique athletic and social that brings the Corridor  together. In 2018, the marathon route started in Cedar Rapids and ended in Iowa City. In 2019, we flipped the script and started in Iowa City and ended in historic Czech Village in Cedar Rapids. For 2020, the marathon was originally planned to start in Cedar Rapids and end in Coralville but, due to the COVID 19 public health emergency, the race was changed to a virtual event. As in previous years, proceeds from RUN CRANDIC will benefit school programs within the Cedar Rapids and Iowa City area.



  • The virtual race will officially take place beginning at midnight on April 26, 2020 through 11:59pm on May 9th, 2020.  Due to the ever changing landscape during the COVID 19 public health emergency, if a runner is concerned about their ability to complete their race during that time frame, they may run their race prior to the April 26th date. 
  • Runners should run the distance, Marathon, Marathon Relay, Half or 5K, that they originally registered for.
  • Any course that is the correct distance for your registered race may be used.
  • While we encourage participants to run an outdoors course, a treadmill may be used to run the virtual race.
  • Upon completion of your virtual run you will be shipped all of the items by May 25th, 2020.  



We have partnered with Race Day events to produce your race bib. This will be mailed to you in in May as part of your packet. The bib color will match the race medal ribbon and ¼ zip/shirt.
