Finish Before You Start Run

 You read that right, this race will start at 2:00 AM at Daylight Savings time. Runners and walkers will complete a 2 mile loop or a 4 mile, 2- looped course through the early morning (late night?) lamp post lit streets of Waterloo, NE. Thanks to Mother Nature and Daylight Savings Time, once you've completed the course it will magically be before you started, and it might all have been a dream. This course will begin and end at the Fire Barn Sports Bar and Grill in Waterloo. To commemorate time travel, the theme for this event is Back to the Future and prizes will be given to the best dressed 80s themed costume.Enjoy a post-race party supported by Fire Barn. A portion of the proceeds from Ironhawk Endurance supports the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) and the mission to find a cure for type 1 diabetes.


All walkers and runners welcome! Each participant that signs up will receive a commemorative stocking cap if you sign up by October 15th. This race is part of the Ironhawk #UnicornChallenge so watch for special unicorns hidden throughout the race!
