Iowa City Race for the Schools

In what has become an annual race in Iowa City, the Race for the Schools includes a 5K, 10K, Half Marathon and variety of fun runs to raise money for the Iowa City School Systems.

The course winds through downtown Iowa City into the nearby residential neighborhoods. Runners of all ages and abilities hit the streets whether with their legs, in strollers, or as one little boy did, on a scooter.

My wife and son took part in the 5K and each finished under 40 minutes, their first race of this length ever.

Along the route, someone had the opportunity to put his shades on and finish in style.
