Battle of the Burbs 5K (Clive, Johnston, Urbandale, Waukee, & WDM)

Battle for Your Burb

After a record-setting registration for our 5K, 10K and Kids Fun Run in 2021, we’re gearing up for a fun-filled battle between our participating suburbs on Saturday, Aug. 6, 2022:

  • Clive
  • Johnston
  • Urbandale
  • Waukee
  • West Des Moines (2021 Champion)

When you register(opens in a new window):

  • Choose your ‘burb or “all of the above”

100% of all registration fees will go to nonprofits and community improvement projects. The city with the most participants wins bragging rights – and our WWE-style belt that serves as our travelling trophy.

Kids Fun Run

Bring the kids for our Kids Fun Run (registration is limited to 150 kids). Kids between the ages of 4-12 will be placed in heats for the obstacle course on our campus. Parents are welcome to help their little ones.

Obstacles include:

  • Tube Crawl
  • Over Under
  • Net (Army Crawl)
  • Noodle Tires

Cost: $10.00

Kids Swag

Kids will get their own swag bag that includes a t-shirt. And medals are awarded as they cross the finish line.

Community Contributions

When runners select a ‘burb, 100% of those registration fees go back to that community to support non-profits and community betterment efforts. Don’t worry – if you don’t live in one of those suburbs, we still encourage you to join the fun and walk or run. Then select “all of the above” when registering and your registration fee will be split among the suburbs.
