Plans are underway for the 2017 River Run 5K and (new this year) 10K races! Both courses are USATF certified. Everyone is welcome to run the Rockford River Run 5k and 10K Both courses are an out and back that follow the slightly rolling river road (County Road 20) along the Crow River in Rockford. The races start at 8:00 a.m. at the beautiful Riverside Park where the festivities of the Rockford River Days take place. The 5k and 10K runs will be followed by a kids’ 1K Fun Run. Come on out for a run, or to cheer for those who are running. It’s a wonderful tradition and we’d love for you to be a part of it. Race day registration is $35, but we highly recommend that you register on-line here! See you on the River Road!
Both races will be chip timed. The 5K will have one water stop and the 10K will have two water stops (or, as I like to say…water run bys). Each runner will receive a t-shirt (while supplies last) and there will be prizes for age category winners.
WHAT RUNNER DOESN’T LOVE TO SEE HIS OR HER RACE PHOTO? This year, the Rockford River Run will have our own event photographer ready to snap your photo as you cross the finish line! Thank you to Brenda Howe Photography for donating your time and skills to the Rockford River Run! Race photos will be available on Facebook Monday after the race. Look for announcements here and on the Total Strength Fitness Facebook Page. Remember to smile when you cross that finish line!
LOOKING FOR VOLUNTEERS! It takes a lot of work to put on a terrific run like the Rockford River Run! We need people to help with registration & check-in, water stops, post-race food, course management, etc. Please contact Colleen if you are able to help! We are so grateful to all who help make the Rockford River Run an on-going tradition.
