TOP FINISHERS AWARDS
Awarded to the top 3 male and female runners in each age group in both 5k and 1/2 marathon events.
New for 2020, we will send off school running clubs in waves, according to each respective school. Student runners that plan to run at a fast pace (below 8:00 min/mile), may line up with the open wave.
No bikes, dogs, skateboard, rollerblades, or scooters allowed on the course. Strollers allowed on 5k course only. All runners must be registered to participate. Race directors reserve the right to cancel the event in case of severe weather. No refunds.
Official timing concludes at 11:30am (3 hours 30 minutes/16 minute per mile pace).
Racing is always more fun with friends. So, we are pleased to offer refunds to participants that refer friends to join them at Rivertown Races. After you register for Rivertown Races you will receive a referral link in your confirmation. Get friends to come run with you and use your custom referral link to register and you could earn a refund on your race entry fee.
For 5k athletes, refer 5 friends and you will automatically receive a $20 refund. And then you will get an additional $5 refund for each additional friend you recruit with your referral code. So, recruit 7 or 8 friends and you could get your entire registration refunded!
10k runners, if you recruit just 4 additional runners you too can get $20 back, and then an additional $5 for each additional after that.
And for you half marathoners, get just 2 more folks to run with you, and you get the same deal.
Note: you can only be refunded up to your registration fee. You don't get paid extra if you recruit more folks :)
