Registration for the IPA Foundation team is now closed, but there are oher ways to join the team.

Each July, the Des Moines Register holds the Register’s Annual Great Bicycle Ride Across Iowa (RAGBRAI) and the IPA Foundation will again sponsor team for the week-long trek across the state of Iowa.

As ambassadors for the association and our profession, the IPA Foundation RAGBRAI team connects with Iowa pharmacists and pharmacies along the route, serves fellow riders with first aid and OTC treatments, and educates Iowans on the important role of pharmacy. Any Iowa pharmacist, pharmacy technician or student pharmacist is welcome to join this weeklong adventure on two wheels, spreading the word about pharmacy from river to river.

This year's route from Orange City to Lansing is the third easiest RAGBRAI route ever, so if you have ever thought about doing RAGRBAI, this is your year and we have your team! Join the Foundation's RAGBRAI team!

Other Ways to Join the Team

Not a rider? Not a problem. The Foundation's RAGBRAI Team is more than riders. Join the team through a supportive role.

We are looking for hosts in the overnight stops along the route and volunteers to drive the team to help get the team from the Missouri River to the Mississippi River. If interested, contact Laura Miller at or 515-270-0713.

Sponsorship opportunities are available to support the entire team or a specific rider (once team is set). Click here to make a sponsorship payment
