Run The State 5K & Hike Series

Day in and day out, employees come to work to keep state operations running smoothly. While that is Run The State 5K & Hike Series Logogreatly appreciated, it is time for you to do something for yourself, get outdoors and Run this State!

Starting in April, Invest In Your Health is hosting the Run The State 5K and Hike Series in partnership with the Department of Natural Resources and Go365. This year, there are five 5Ks and four hikes scheduled all over the state. Employees and their dependents enrolled in Go365 are invited to attend these morning events and spend the rest of the day enjoying the parks.

Each Go365 member participating in a 5K or hike earns 250 points within the program.  These points help you achieve an Earned Status of Silver, thereby qualifying you for Upgrade 2018. Not a runner? No worries! Everyone is encouraged to participate at their own pace. Run, walk, stroll or hike your way to the finish line. Join fellow state employees who are making the commitment to get out, and get moving together!

Below is the schedule of events:

There is no cost to register for a 5K or hike, but participants are required to pay $7 per vehicle (or $8 at Prophetstown State Park) at the gate for park entrance. This fee allows entrance for the entire day. After the 5K or hike event, explore other trails with the family or invite your colleagues to a picnic in the park. All races begin at 8:30 a.m. local time. T-shirt pick up and race check-in are from 7:15 a.m. to 8:15 a.m. local time the day of the race. For hike events, t-shirt pick up and check-in starts 30 minutes before the beginning of the scheduled hike. Click on the registration button above for more information on hike times.

While you may register for more than one event, keep in mind that there are registration limits for each park. We can’t wait to Run The State with you!
