Linn County Bible Reading Marathon

Be a part of proclaiming God’s Word over Cedar Rapids by reading at the Linn County Bible Reading Marathon.  Our first year was in June 2016; we had about 320 readers from 20 churches and ministries.

This year’s BRM will be held on Mon 6/26/17 through Sat 7/1/17 on May’s Island, also known as Plaza Park, in downtown Cedar Rapids. May’s Island is between the Linn Co. courthouse on 3rd Ave and the Veteran’s Coliseum on 2nd Ave. Metered parking is available on both streets.  There will be four hooded meters along 2nd Ave, where parking will be free. The Bible will be read in the NASB version from cover to cover; each person reading for 15 minute slots. (You can read more for more than one slot.) The Bible to read from is provided.

There are still slots for readers. Young and old are invited to read. Please click on the Sign-Up Genius link here.  You can also contact Linn County Chair, Mary Lehner, if you have any questions. Her e-mail address is
