Get ready for the 5th Hoover Prairie Run held in conjunction with Hoover’s Hometown Days on Aug. 10, 2024 at 8:00 AM.

The challenging 5K Prairie Run takes place on the Herbert Hoover National Historic Site and follows mown, hilly grass trails through the beautiful Tall-grass Prairie at the height of summer bloom and a mix of paved and grass paths on the Hoover Presidential and Library grounds. For walkers we offer a paved 1.5K path around the Hoover Presidential Library and Museum grounds, and the Presidential Gravesite.

Registration by July 25 is $25 for the 5K run and $15 for the 1.5K walk. After July 25 the fee increases to $30 for the run and $20 for the walk. Online registration is open through August 8th and in-person registration is open from 7:15-8:00 the morning of the event.

Each paid registrant by July 25 will receive a t-shirt, there will be water stations on the running route, and water and a snack at the conclusion. Medals will be awarded to the top 3 female and male runners in the 5K in each age group: 14 and under, 15-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, 70-79, 80 & up. No pets please.
