Run with Carl 2020


To keep the Quad Cities Community safe during the COVID-19 pandemic while furthering the Run with Carl, we are excited to announce that

Run with Carl is going SOCIALLY DISTANCED for 2020! 





Anytime during the summer months, we want YOU to lace up your running/walking shoes and hit the pavement in honor of Carl, run the RWC route, and post a selfie tagging #RWC2020!


While some races in the Quad Cities have chosen to go “virtual”, Run with Carl will have NO race registration, NO time reporting, and NO medals. Our hope is that you go out and be active, while supporting your local students and this amazing Quad Cities Labor Day tradition in whatever way you can!



Purchase your special edition Run with Carl 2020 shirt from Classical Graphics! This is the easiest way to support the RWC mission AND get an awesome shirt shipped right to your front door! Ordering open until September 13th at 11:59 pm.




In an effort to continue Carl’s legacy through this challenging time, we will also be collecting donations to directly benefit the Bettendorf and Pleasant Valley School Foundations through our RWC PayPal. We know the community will rally to support our graduating seniors and we are so grateful for the dedicated support of every Quad Citizen towards Run with Carl. 


Follow the CLICK HERE TO DONATE button to make a direct donation if running isn't for you! The Bettendorf and Pleasant Valley School Foundations and graduating seniors thank you for helping keep Carl's legacy strong in our community!

Thank you to our 2020 race sponsors!


Proceeds from the annual Labor Day "Run with Carl" benefit Bettendorf and Pleasant Valley students. The 2019 race raised over $15,000 for each foundation and proceeds are used to fund scholarships for graduating Seniors in both districts and are also used to support innovative classroom grants in BCSD.  We could not do it with YOU!
