With our beautiful river trails, the Quad Cities the perfect venue for advocates of active and healthy lifestyles.  Lifestyles of balance and happiness. Biking, running, walking, swimming, galore!  You name it.  But with the state-wide and even national pull for our Bix 7, Marathon and even the Firecracker, it is evident the QC is the place-to-be for races!

So turn up those iPods and lace up those sneakers, it’s time for the annual Lagomarcino’s Cocoa Beano 5K.

The race begins at 9 A.M. on Saturday, October 24 at the Lagomarcino’s location in the Village of East Davenport, IA. Registration includes a fantastic running jacket and, of course, a free Lago’s hot chocolate and chocolate turtle upon completion of the event.

It’s family friendly… and, I mean, who wouldn’t want to run for chocolate?
