American Gothic 5K

  • American Gothic House Center 300 American Gothic Street Eldon, IA 52554 (map)

Get out and get moving for our annual 5K to celebrate American Gothic Days! This race starts and finishes in front of the American Gothic House center, with the historic American Gothic House in the background.

The race will begin at 8am, with day-of registration and packet pick-up beginning at 7am. The race starts in front of the American Gothic House center, loops through Eldon, and finishes back at the center.

Snacks and water will be provided at the end of the race, as well as medals for the 1st and 2nd place winners in each category.

Registration costs $20 if done by May 23rd, and $25 after. This race includes a shirt, and registering by the 23rd guarantees you will get your shirt the day of the race. After that, it will be a first-come, first-serve basis. If we do not have a shirt for you on the day of the race, we will be ordering more, and once we get them in to the center you can either pick it up, or we can mail it to you.

This event coincides with Eldon’s American Gothic Days. More details on the events going on around town will be posted to the City of Eldon’s website very soon.
