“Each age, it is found, must write its own books; or rather, each generation for the next succeeding.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson
A new chapter has arrived. CVRA is now Corridor Running. This rebranding better suits the current geographical footprint of the organization and offers exciting new opportunities for members. In addition to the benefits that long time CVRA members enjoy, we are excited to announce several new benefits for runners and fitness enthusiasts in Eastern Iowa.
Highly competitive runners of all ages are invited to apply for membership in our new Elite Team. Qualifying members will enjoy complimentary shoes from sponsor Newton Running, Nike racing singlets, complimentary entry in area races and more.
Any runner that competes regularly in area races will now be able to represent the club as a member of the Corridor Running Race Squad. Custom Race Squad gear will soon be available through a new sponsorship arrangement with Nike.
We are working hard to negotiate greater benefits for all Corridor Running members. The new Fit Families discount card saves money at Corridor area health clubs, retailers, and area races. The addition of the Iowa City chapter will expand the value this program. These cards, exclusive to club members, will be available soon.
The popular Couch to 5k program continues, with an early spring option leading up to the Fifth Season Races on July 4th. Later in the summer, Corridor Running hosts another Couch to 5K program in Iowa City that will culminate at the Run for the Schools race in October.
Planned group runs are offered every day of the week. Participating members enjoy a chance make new friends while running safely. Some group run events include on-site coaching, and the opportunity to improve stamina, speed, and endurance.
The Corridor Running Iowa City chapter is pleased to present the Shamrock Shuffle and the Iowa City Downtown Series. These exciting events offer current club members a fun way to get to know our new chapter members.
Cedar Valley Running Association has been a venerable organization for many years, and the story continues. As we grow and welcome new members into the fold, we continue to be ambassadors of the great benefits of running and fitness. Corridor Running will evolve as a new generation tells their story. It will be a good read.
