6th Annual Coach Lynn 5k Memorial Run

Please join us for the 6th year of the Coach Lynn 5k Memorial Run. Since the inception of the scholarship and yearly runs, we have had the opportunity to grant 6 scholarships to Iowa High School athletes. We are humbled by the continued support of our friends and family to keep giving back. With your help we can give student athletes the chance to succeed in college and in life. Coach Lynn's impact was not just about results on the track, but creating lasting relationships with everyone he met. Each one of you carry that legacy with his stories and joy of friendship. Come out this September 16th, 2018 at Veenker Memorial Golf Course to compete, have fun and celebrate Coach Steve Lynn's legacy and love of track, family, and friends. 

The weekend of the race will also be the Hall of Fame and All-Sport Reunion Weekend for the ISU Letterwinners Club. More info on that event can be found at: ISU Letterwinners Weekend

We will have the Kid's Run to start the day off, with the course going around the practice green. Age limit for the Kid's Run will be 10 years old. 

The 5k Run/Walk will follow the Kid's Run at Moore Park right next door to Veenker. You are welcome to compete as an individual either running or walking, strollers and dogs are welcome. You can also make a 3 person 3x1 mile "Snickers Relay Team". If you are unaware of what a Snickers Relay is, check out the Videos section of the Coach Lynn Facebook Page linked below. Relay teams need not be submitted in registration, and can be handled day of the race.

Group photo and breakfast will follow the races, so please stick around.
