UI Doc Dash 5K

The Doc Dash is a 5K race/walk that takes its route through the hospital campus and surrounding neighborhood. It is a 30-year tradition supported by the Carver College of Medicine and will take place this year at 9 AM on April 7th, 2018. A shorter children’s race (dubbed the ‘Doc-ling Dash’) will start at 8:30 AM. In addition to healthcare professionals, the race is geared to the general public.

We donate all proceeds to the Iowa City Free Medical Clinic and the University of Iowa Mobile Clinic. These Iowa City organizations provide services to under-served populations who lack health insurance. Additionally, the Mobile Clinic draws its volunteers entirely from the College of Medicine and students of other healthcare disciplines to aid in the training of future healthcare professionals.

The children’s Doc-ling Dash is in its second year! The children’s run will consist of a roughly 1/2 mile course which will have stops along the way so that the kids can pick up stickers and other prizes. The interactive race course is meant to inspire kids to have fun while doing something healthy. Because our goal is to get children from the community out doing a healthy activity, both the 1/2 mile Doc-ling Dash and the 5K are FREE to children under 14.
