Illinois Agriculture in the Classroom (IAITC) 5K Grow & Go @ Illinois Farm Bureau Headquarters

Ready, Set, Go & Grow! The IAA Foundation proudly presents its annual 5K Grow & Go to celebrate Illinois farm families and the important role they play in putting food on your table. Learn more about our roots in agriculture while supporting a great cause. Proceeds from this race benefit Illinois Ag in the Classroom (IAITC), a program that provides free resources to teachers in an effort to help students make the connection between food, fiber, fuel, & farming.

Accurately measured course has a cross-country feel with well-maintained grass, pavement, and a few rolling hills. Finishing times & results provided by the Lake Run Club of Bloomington/Normal. Pre-registered runners receive a t-shirt and a healthy, hot breakfast after the race.

Unique to the event is a 1/4 mile “Kids Race” for children 10 & under. All children receive an award, a healthy, hot breakfast, and opportunity to take part in hands-on learning activities.

Post-race, join us for an indoor open house featuring interactive learning stations from IAITC program, hot breakfast, and awards ceremony.
