Letter from the Director

Dear Runners,
Are you ready for the Midwest's favorite marathon?  The TBK Bank Quad Cities Marathon, a USATF certified course is held annually on the fourth Sunday in September. The 26.2 mile run starts and ends in downtown Moline, IL. The official charity of the marthon is the Greater Quad Cities US Too Prostate Cancer Support group. The group offers local screeenings, research and support. The flat and fast course features one of the finest, most scenic river views in the country.  It covers 5 races, 4 cities, 3 bridges, 2 states, and 1 island, all along the mighty Mississippi River.  
Race weekend offers something for everyone. Along with the marathon, we offer a half marathon, marathon relay, 5K, Pump n Run, 1 mile run/walk and even a micromarathon for the kids.  Whether you're looking to qualify for Boston, or walk a mile with your friends - this fun and well organized event is perfect for elite athletes and casual runners alike.  
We are an all volunteer race organized by friendly Midwest people who love to run. We extend our warmest thanks to our dedicated volunteers and participating charities who are critical to making this world-class event come together each year. As always, we thank our valued sponsors and expo vendors: first and foremost TBK Bank. As you look through our site, please take note of our sponsors and support them throughout the year. There would be no race without them.
Find out for yourself why runners from all over the world return to the Quad Cities year after year. Sign up today for the TBK Bank Quad Cities Marathon and Festival of Races to reserve your spot on the start line of what we believe to be the best race in the United States. We hope to see you here on September 22nd and 23rd. 
Joe Moreno
Race Director
