It's one of the most unique road races in Iowa.  It's also one of the best cause you don't have to run under the heat of the sun.  The Moonlight Chase in Eldridge closes down the streets at night for you to run under the stars.

There are runs for adults, kids, and cash prizes thanks to The Fun Station for anyone that just shows off their glow.

The fun run is held on the streets of Eldridge on July 8 with the entire 4-mile course lined with thousands of luminaries. The Moonlight Chase is the pinnacle event of the Eldridge Summer Festival.  That day downtown is filled with food, drink, games, music, and fun for the entire family.

Thousands of people will come out to take part in The Moonlight Chase not only as a runner but also as a spectator. The supporters show their stuff with decorations and music and cheers along the entire course.
