RiverFest Running Events
Do you love to run? We’ll have you covered — and covered in mud, too — at this year’s IPFW RiverFest!
5K River Mud Run — NEW!
Sponsor: Max Fitness
Check-in 7:30 a.m. at Rhinehart Music Center. Run starts at 8:30 a.m.
Get muddy! This isn’t your average 5K! Run, crawl, and climb your way through the fun obstacles — or take a detour! The course includes pavement, grass, gravel, uneven ground, and obstacles intended to test endurance, strength, and agility.
400 meter Kids River Run — NEW!
Check-in 7:30 a.m. at Rhinehart Music Center. Run starts at 8:45 a.m.
This children’s 400 meter run will feature heats by age group. It’s also the kick-off event for the Fort4Fitness Kids Marathon Training Program.
4K River Walk/Run
Sponsor: Tower Bank
Check-in 7:30 a.m. at Rhinehart Music Center. Run starts at 9:00 a.m.
Walk or run (or both!) through IPFW along the Rivergreenway trails and campus sidewalks. The paved course is accessible to strollers and wheelchairs, and features a new route!
Online pre-registration is CLOSED. You can register on-site for the 400M Kids River Run and the 4K River Walk/Run starting at 7:30 a.m.
