Amway River Bank Run Tradition continues as a Virtual Race

With continued concerns of COVID-19 and state guidelines limiting the size of outdoor group gatherings, as well as the safety and health of our participants, volunteers and staff,  Amway River Bank Run organizers are saddened to cancel the in-person running event planned for October 24.   

  •  For those registered as of 8/19/2020 for the in-person event on October 24 - please select one of the options below by August 31. 
  •  Those already registered for a virtual event - don't need to do anything! 

If you haven't registered and would like to - just click on "Sign Up" or "Event Info" to continue!

Here's the official announcement.  If you have questions, please email  Thank you!

Here Are Your Options:

With all the training you have done this year - reward yourself with receiving 2020 River Bank Run Swag - that includes:

  • 2020 Race Shirt

  • 2020 Finisher Medal

  • River Bank Run gaiter (great option to have when you need to cover up in crowds)

  • 20% off discount coupon for 2021 (This will be mailed out directly to Virtual participants when 2021 registration opens)

  • In addition - because 2020 has been a year we have never experienced in the past -  age group awards will be presented to Virtual participants -   This is your opportunity to possibly place in your age group.  Remember everything is based on the honor system and awards will be mailed after final virtual results are received.  

  • Then join us to for the 1.5K Drive Thru Packet Pickup on Saturday, October 24 in Millennium Park - more details will follow.

Please defer me to the May 8 2021 event.  


Amway River Bank Run presented by Fifth Third Bank with Spectrum Health, the Official Health Partner,  is held  in downtown Grand Rapids, Michigan.

Looking forward to 2021 and having the streets of Grand Rapids filled with the largest 25K road race in the country and the USA 25 km Open Championships. More than 15,000 people are expected to participate on event day including a 5K Run, 10K Run, 25K Handcycle race, 25K Wheelchair race, 25K race and a 5K Community Walk.   In 2020, the Amway River Bank Run will celebrate our 43rd year running virtually everywhere!
