Corridor Running is a 501C3 non-profit running club. We serve Cedar Rapids, Iowa City and the surrounding Corridor areas in Iowa. As a member of USATF and the Road Runners Club of America (RRCA), we host and sponsor 8 races of various distances throughout the year. We sponsor weekly group runs (seasonally) and work with local running stores and other groups who do training runs, throughout the Cedar Rapids, Iowa City and the surrounding Corridor area.  We also volunteer and need volunteers at our races and social events. Contact us with questions.

Our Mission

Our mission is to promote healthy lifestyles through running events and community outreach; Corridor Running currently contributes 10% of every race dollar to local youth and families.  We support local runners and partner with local charities to raise funds through running events.

Equipment Rental

We have an extensive collection of rental equipment to help you make your race a success. From clocks to cones, check out the entire inventory and availability here: Corridor Running Equipment Rentals

If you need race timing services, we can provide you with the names and contact information for independent businesses who provide this service.  We use these same businesses for our local races as we do not provide race timing services as one of our options.

Race Hosting Resources

Hosting a race is a big undertaking and there are a lot of details that need to be just right to make sure that the your event runs smoothly, safely, and is fun for all involved.

To help you along, Corridor Running has resources to help make certain that your event goes off without a hitch. First, we’ve assembled Race Planning Best Practices and Guidelines which provides a comprehensive overview of the components you need when organizing a race.


Corridor Running was originally formed as the Cedar Valley Running Association, or simply known as CVRA. The organization came together in 1982 when a group of friends made it a habit to meet for regular group runs at Noelridge Park in Cedar Rapids, IA. Some of the original members were C.J. Ong, Jr., Martin Smith, Peggy Kirby, Jim Shimek, and Larry Fauchier.  In 2015 we examined where our race participants reside. We learned that the majority of registrants live in the area considered the “Corridor”, primarily Cedar Rapids, Marion, Hiawatha, Iowa City, North Liberty and the many communities surrounding these towns.  Subsequently we changed our name to more accurately reflect where you are from, to Corridor Running.


The bylaws are in effect and were voted on by club members present at the February 2016 board meeting. Please contact the Corridor Running board if you have any suggestions, concerns, or questions with the bylaws.
