Welcome to the Mississippi Valley Running Association
Our mission is to strengthen our community through service and charitable giving by encouraging and supporting a healthy and active mind and body. This is achieved by providing education, race and social experiences for runners and walkers of all ages and abilities.
We are a 501(c)3 non-profit running club in the tri-states area.
Each year, we host two races – the 10K/5K trail race on Heritage Trail, and the Benefit Classic half marathon in downtown, Dubuque.
Registration for both races is now open – click below to get the details!
Looking for more races this year? Check out the 2023 Race Calendar.

Our instructors are all different, with diverse lives, styles and backgrounds but what is consistent is that all of them are kind, committed and inspirational.
