Race Day Info

Important information about packet pick-up and race day:
Thank you for participating in The Salvation Army Flood the Run.  This is important information about packet pickup and race day so please read through it.
1.) Packet pickup – You can pick up The Salvation Army Flood the Run packets at the following times:
– Friday, August 9 from 2pm to 8pm at The Salvation Army in the gym (1000 C Ave. NW, Cedar Rapids).
– Race morning – Saturday, August 10 – beginning at 8am at the River Pavilion in Ellis Park
2.) Shirts – If you registered after the deadline for t-shirts, you may be in luck. We will have runner shirts from this year and shirts from previous years available for purchase only while supplies last on Friday and Saturday!
3.) Plan to arrive early – Plan to arrive 20 to 30 minutes before your wave is scheduled to start. This will allow you plenty of time to find parking and get ready to run. Check your original confirmation email to see your wave time.
4.) Parking – There should be plenty of parking available in and around the park. But Ellis Road will be closed so you may want to check out the parking map and determine where you want to park before you arrive. See the map for parking locations. https://www.crfloodtherun.com/course-map/
It may be easier to arrive from the east of the park because cars coming from Edgewood Road will be sent through a winding detour to get around the closed road.
5.) Remember your wristband – You’ll receive a wristband in your packet. Don’t forget to wear that on race morning. That’s how we’ll identify who are registered to participate. You may want to put it on when you get it at packet pickup.
6.) Plan to GET SOAKED! – You may want to put a towel in the car. You can bring a change of clothes, but be aware that we don’t have designated changing areas. There will be port-a-potties. You may also want to slather on some sunscreen before you come, or bring some along with you.
7.) Stick around after the race – We’ll have lots of activities in the park after the race, a few snack vendors and live music, so please stick around and enjoy.
8.) Late registrations – Online registration is now closed. We will still take registrations at packet pick-up (See item #1). So bring your friends! Send them this email if you like.
Late registration prices are as follows:
$20 ages 10 and under
$40 ages 11 and up
We can’t wait to see you!!!!!
