The 49th Annual YMCA Riverbank Run is being offered virtually and in person! Virtual runs can happen any time before race day by running our course or one of your choosing. Or join us in person on race day, April 24th, 2021.

*Due to construction on our normal route, our race course is a little different this year. All races will start and finish at Playfair Park behind the YMCA. Maps here: https://riverbankrun.org/index.php/faq/course-map/


Please remember if you are not feeling well or showing any symptoms of COVID-19 to stay home and run the race virtually!

On race day, please practice social distancing throughout the event space. Masks or other face covering of the nose and mouth is required when not actively running in the race. This means when you are waiting for the race to begin and once you have crossed the finish line you must wear a mask! There is plenty of room to space out while waiting at the start line, but please do not arrive at the race venue more than 15 minutes before your race start time to minimize crowding.
