Clinton Community College will host the 3rd Annual B-rrry Scurry 4-Mile Run on Saturday, February 3, 2024.  Runners and walkers love the B-rrry Scurry race day atmosphere!  The route is flat and fast with chip timing and instant results. For year, participants have called the B-rrry Scurry “one of the best little races in the Midwest!”   Proceeds of the race benefit CCC students through B-rrry Scurry scholarships.  Registration is available at or stop in to CCC, 1000 Lincoln Blvd., Clinton, to pick up a form.

The CCC B-rrry Scurry is the first race in the Clinton area Mississippi River Challenge. Participants of three Clinton races – the CCC B-rrry Scurry 4-Mile Run, the Pam Pray Memorial 4-Mile Run (April 7), and one of the three Clinton Half Marathon Races(September 8), will earn the Mississippi River Challenge medal, a large commemorative medal. There is no fee to participate, however only the runners and walkers that complete all three races will earn the medal.  “Runners and walkers are eager to get out for a great event that helps so many CCC students. Earning the Mississippi River Challenge medal is an added incentive.  Thank you to the generous sponsors and hardworking volunteers who make this race happen. We are watching the temps climb for a perfect balmy race day on February 3,” commented B-rrry Scurry Race Director Ann Eisenman.

The B-rrry Scurry begins at Noon at the college, 1000 Lincoln Blvd., Clinton. Runners and walkers are invited to participate.  No pets or strollers are allowed on the race course. Packet pickup has changed due to the CDC Guidelines which prevent large gatherings in Clinton Community College. Drive Thru Packet Pickup is Thursday February 1 from 3:30 – 5:30 p.m., and Friday, February 4 from 2 - 4 p.m. There will be Saturday packet pickup from 9 – 11:30 a.m.  

Prize money is awarded to the male and/or female that sets a new B-rrry Scurry course record on the out-and-back flat-and-fast course.  The Women’s record was set in 2022 by Olivia Dietzel with a time of time of 23:08.  The Men's record was set by Devin Allbaugh of Bettendorf, Iowa in 2023 with a time of 19:18.

All B-rrry Scurry participants receive the official, originally-designed NEON race shirt (runners will LOVE this shirt!), have their names listed in the Clinton Herald, are eligible for some great door prizes, and free refreshments after the race.  Legends Sports Bar will host the post-race celebration. 

Special medallions bearing the image of B-rrry Bear, the official race mascot, are presented in 17 age divisions for both men and women, including the 85 + age category. The B-rrry Challenge encourages area businesses and organizations to get involved while competing for the top award.

The most fascinating aspect of the B-rrry Scurry is the weather.  February temperatures have ranged from 35 degrees below zero to 60 degrees above zero.  Everyone is encouraged to dress in layers to keep warm in the chilly temps.

The B-rrry Scurry race volunteers number more than 100. These dedicated folks are so appreciated for their commitment to the B-rrry Scurry, Clinton Community College, and the community.  Anyone interested in volunteering for the B-rrry Scurry is encouraged to contact Clinton Community College at 563-244-7001.  To register, visit our website at or come to the college with your registration form.
