Join us for the Clive Running Festival, July 20, 2019. As a former runner in this race, to then later helping out as a volunteer for the event, I have always enjoyed this local community race. Please consider coming out and participating with your family on this scenic course that takes you through the neighborhoods of Clive and the beautiful Clive Greenbelt Trail. With a 5K, 10K, mile run and the Tadpole Trot there is an event for all members of the family. This popular trail is used year round by runners, walkers and bicyclists. Proceeds from the race are used for trail improvements such as the new drinking fountains which were installed from past races and the annual maintenance on the trail. Your participation in the Clive Running Festival directly benefits all who love and enjoy the use of this wonderful asset.
