Race Information

The annual Hillybilly Hike Half Marathon & 10k races are a fundraiser for the Thrive Church Mission Team. Three start lines, one finish line with chip timing, amazing swag, custom diecast medals to all participants, and trophies to top finishers plus age division awards.

The half marathon and 10k are point-to-point races and bus transportation is provided. The Greubel Memorial 5k was added in 2017 to fundraise for three kids in the church community who tragically lost their parents. It is an an out and back and funds will go towards the kids' college savings plans.

Previous participants love this race's courses because they are flat and fast, with the Half a downhill, then flat. When you reach the finish line in Carlisle, Iowa you will be greeted with festive music, and deliciously great grub served up by friendly volunteers. You can have your custom die cast medal engraved, then ring the PR Bell near the free and fun photo booth.
