35th Annual Moonlight Chase - July 13, 2019

The Moonlight Chase is one of Eastern Iowa's most unique road races. The fun run is held on the streets of Eldridge with the entire 4-mile course lined with luminaries. The evening includes 1/4 mile and 1-mile runs for kids, as well as the 4-mile competition. The Moonlight Chase is the pinnacle event to the Eldridge Festival.

It is electrifying to watch the streets come alive, as the sun goes down, and the community comes out for a small-town Iowa festival. Literally thousands come out to take part in the Chase. The Moonlight Chase is not only one of the best runs to run in, but also one of the best as a spectator. The community shows its stuff with decorations and music and cheers along the entire course.

After the race, stick around for a great party! Dance to great music and enjoy refreshments under the stars. Join us July 13, 2019 and find out what makes the Moonlight Chase so special.

All proceeds from the Moonlight Chase go to support local civic projects. Race proceeds support local organizations like the Scott County Library System, the Eldridge Volunteer Fire Department, Long Grove Fire Department, North Scott Post Prom, Hometown Holiday, and the list goes on… You won't want to miss this year's Moonlight Chase!
