Murals & More invites you to The Crunch Berry Run, sponsored by The Quaker Oats Company, an extraordinary, family-friendly, colorful fun run or walk – you choose how far you go, up to 5K! and Crunch Berries waiting at the finish line!


Color, color, everywhere!

The colored powder will get all over you. It may stain fabrics and you may have to wash your hair a couple times. Good thing you get a race t-shirt to wear!

Fun for all ages! Strollers and wagons are welcome, just remember anything you bring on the route will be doused in color.

Running not required! This is a non-competitive event appropriate for people of all ages and abilities.

In partnership with Cedar Rapids Downtown Farmers’ Market, The Crunch Berry Run begins at 9:00 AM on Saturday, October 2, 2021, starting and ending at the 2nd Ave Bridge in Downtown Cedar Rapids. You will be covered in environmentally-friendly colored powder as you run or walk the route! The party continues after crossing the finish line on the 2nd Ave Bridge until 11:00 AM with crunch berries, music, family-friendly activities, and of course more color!
This fun run/walk is not timed and is appropriate for people of all ages and athletic abilities.
The Crunch Berry Run is a fundraiser for Murals & More. All proceeds from this event go to support Murals & More’s mission to cultivate public art in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
