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 for a reduced rate (only $25 today)! 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.
Interested in being a River Run sponsor? Proceeds from this race go to support the Rockford School track & field and cross country teams. Funds are used to provide needed uniforms, warm ups, and equipment for these teams. Sponsorship information is below, or contact Colleen with any additional questions.
