The Eldridge Moonlight Chase Wants You To Run In The Dark
After a year of racing virtually, which is basically just running by yourself, the races we know and love are coming back this summer. Join Townsquare Media at the "The Moonlight Chase" in Eldridge on July 10!Eastern Iowa's most unique road race, The Moonlight Chase is a 4 mile run held on the streets of Eldridge starting, yes starting, at 9:00 PM the entire course is lined with luminaries to light your way through the city course. The evening also includes 1/4 mile and 1 mile runs for kids.
This year, Townsquare Media and Kline Sewer & Drain want to see you really glow! We'll have $100 cash prizes up for grabs for the best "night running costume". $100 for the 1/4 mile kids run. $100 for the one-mile youth run. $100 individual prize and $100 duo/group prize for the 4 mile race! Get the glow sticks, battery powered lights, fluorescent paint and run with us to win!
The 36th annual Moonlight Chase will be modeled after the Bix 7, who is working in conjunction with Genesis Health Systems, the Scott County Health Department, the CDC, and major races around the country. Race organizers will be strongly encouraging race participants to mask up in the starting line and immediately following the race. They will also make adjustments at the start and finish line to allow a significant amount of increased distancing. They will still be providing post-race snacks and beverages for participants but they will be provided by masked and gloved volunteers.
Thank you to "Kline Sewer & Drain - When Drains Don't Work, We Do", for sponsoring the race and prizes!
