Most of the course is fast and flat at Cedar Rapids’ NewBo Run Half Marathon, thanks largely to its location along the trails that parallel the Cedar River here through the city. Runners will head into the parks and nature trails along Indian Creek and the Sac and Fox Trail for much of the race. If you have time while you’re in town for the race, visit the Cedar Rapids Museum of Art and the Grant Wood Studio — it’s where he painted his legendary painting “American Gothic.”
