If you are one of those people who love to win, the Silvis Family Run is the 5k race for you. 

We have a 5k course that is professionally measured and designed for speed with long straightaways. This race course also has a scenic view of the beautiful neighborhoods of Silvis for the laidback runners and walkers who would prefer to take their time and enjoy the scenery.  


  • We give awards for FIRST, SECOND, and THIRD place overall for men and women. We also give trophies and awards for Masters (40+), Grandmasters (50+), and Senior Grandmasters (60+).  
  • We give age group awards: Top 3 in each age group: 14 & under; 15-19; 20-24; 25-29; 30-34; 35-39; 40-44; 45-49; 50-54; 55-59; 60-64; 65-69; 70-74; and 75+.
  • We have a Silvis Home Runner Award for the Silvis fastest male and females who reside in the town of Silvis. Maybe you can be one of the fastest runners in Silvis.

Let’s not forget our 1/2-mile kid run. It’s the perfect run for the little ones. The kid course is out and back run that starts on 4th ave, the kids will run east and turn south at 12th street to 5th ave then head east and turn around in front of George O Barr School.  Each kid run registration gets a cotton race t-shirt—sizes are Youth sized S, M, and L. Kid runners will also get a goody bag packed with treats, chocolate milk at the finish line, and a finisher medal.  

But what if you aren’t fast enough to win any awards? We still have your back. We work hard every year to get out and get as many door prizes as we can. We will have door prizes ranging from $100 cash, Walmart Gift cards, and gift certificates to your favorite restaurants. (In fact, last year we had more door prizes than we people, so some people got two prizes.) Check back each week for an updated list. Just click on the door prize tab.

Three important reasons why you should register for the Silvis Family Run.  Silvis Optimist Club, Silvis Volunteer Fire Dept and Cornbelt Running Club Jr track.  All three of these charities give tremendously to the community and proceeds from this year's race to go to help these three. 

 So, be a winner and register for the Silvis Family Run today.
