The 48th running of the Bix 7 took place earlier today and we were out in full force showing our support! We are a bunch of radio hosts and not runners at all, so cheering for those who actually can run is always a great time. Another highlight is all the drinking and partying these elite athletes and of course, all the crowd members get to do. It just adds to the fun of the race. It’s always a great time.

The Bix is iconic in the Quad Cities, years of tradition follow this race. A quick recap from their website is as follows,

2022 marks the 48th running of the Quad-City Times Bix 7. This historic out-and-back race through downtown Davenport is for runners and walkers alike. The 7-Mile course starts at the base of Brady Street Hill and is lined with live bands and cheering crowds.

It’s so great getting to run with thousands here in the QC. We got a ton of pictures of all the fun for you below, if you ran in the race we might have got a shot of you. You can also look for friends who ran too.

The Bix 7 Coming Back

Now we get to see those we may have missed in the big crowds at the start as the groups start to shrink in the second half. Shout out to those who led the run!

The following two years are going to be a blast as we get closer to the 50th running, and we are going to be there to get all the pictures and of course hand out more beer, margaritas, and more.

See you next year at the Bix 7 Quad Cites!
