The Quad Cities has a lot of options for all types of adults planning a weekend trip away or a local “staycation” from the Active to the Adventurous, or for the more Artistic.
Time to lace up those running shoes hit the road again for the trademark Quad-Cities race of the summer: the Bix 7.
Beginning in 1975, the idea from the race came from John Hudetz, who wanted to bring the liveliness he experienced at the 1974 Boston Marathon to the Quad-Cities area. The idea sparked the seven-mile road race, marking the first time anyone in the QC area was allowed to run on the physical street for a road race.
Jazz, July and…running? That’s right. Lace up your running shoes and grab your iPods. It’s time to get ready for the annual Quad-City Times Bix 7!
