_ The 18th Annual Riverwalk Run:
Lace up your sneakers and join us for the 18th Annual Riverwalk Run at Huizenga Plaza on Saturday, April 14, 2018. This event, hosted by the Junior League of Greater Fort Lauderdale, will honor the League’s 80 years of service, and its impact on improving the surrounding community.
The Riverwalk Run is a day of fitness and fun for the whole family. All fitness levels are encouraged to attend! Options include running the 5 mile USATF Certified Course or the 5K course. A separate 5K Fitness walk is perfect for those who wish to take a slower pace.
The picturesque route starts at Huizenga Plaza on Las Olas Boulevard, and then curves along the bank of the New River, wandering through the tree-lined neighborhood streets of Rio Vista, cutting through Smoker Park with views of the New River and the historic Stranahan House before finishing on the signature brick path of the Riverwalk.
This year your kids can compete, too! Encourage them to sign up for the “Kids’ Fun Run,” a 100 yard dash lined with parents and volunteers to cheer them through the course. Post-race festivities include a hearty brunch, activities for kids and an awards ceremony for top race finishers.
The Riverwalk Run will begin at 8:00 a.m. The cost of the event is $30 and increases to $35 on March 15th for the 5K/5-mile. Or you can join us fo $45 on the day of the race. The Kids’ Fun Run costs $10 in advance and $20 on race day. More than 1,000 runners are anticipated, so register now to secure your spot at: www.riverwalkrun.com.
