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

We are  celebrating 47 years and looking forward to May 11, 2024,  filling the streets of Grand Rapids with the largest 25K road race in the country and the USA 25 km Open Championships.   Join us and participate in one or multiple events which include a 25K Run,  25K Handcycle, 25K Wheelchair,  10K Run, 5K Run and 5K Community Walk.  

In addition to our in-person events, we offer virtual events that give individuals an opportunity to participate by completing the distance of their choice (25K, 10K, 5K, or 5K walk) on the course of their choice and day that works between May 1 and May 31.    Each virtual event offers extended finishing times (unlike the in-person course cutoffs) and having flexibility makes the Virtual Race a great option,  plus you receive all the commemorative RBR Race Swag.  

In 1978, just over 1,000 runners took to the streets on the second Saturday of May for the first annual Old Kent River Bank Run.  In 2001, Old Kent Bank merged with Fifth Third Bank, and the event was renamed to showcase its new owner.  With the transition of race ownership in 2018 to Riverbank Events and Media , a group of leading community partners came together including Amway, Fifth Third Bank and Corewell Health to insure the race will continue for many years to follow on the second Saturday in May in downtown Grand Rapids. In 2019, with Amway as the title sponsor, the race became known as the Amway River Bank Run presented by Fifth Third Bank and  Corewell Health (Spectrum Health) as the Official Health Partner.   The Amway River Bank Run is celebrating 47 years in 2024.
