_ The 2021 7 Rivers Water Festival 5k:
Join us in Central Park, Downtown Winter Haven on September 18, 2021 and run/walk a chip-timed 5k out and back on the Winter Haven Chain of Lakes trail and then enjoy the 7 Rivers Water Festival. Runners will receive a custom Unisex Dri-fit Shirt (Size guaranteed if pre-registered before September 1, 2021), a custom Bib and all 5k finishers on race day will receive a custom finisher medal.
After the race, the 7 Rivers Water Festival is a fun opportunity to learn more about water conservation. Enjoy games, take a plant tour or a boat cruise, touch-a-truck and take home useful prizes. This family friendly event also features a Recycle Fashion Competition, a chance to “be a water drop in the water cycle,” join a volunteer organization and do a little shopping. There will also be opportunities to learn more about Polk’s water challenges, possible alternatives and how to maintain our local quality of life while lessening environmental impact through responsible water use and environmental awareness.
Brought to you by the City of Winter Haven and Polk County Utilities, this outdoor event will include all appropriate safety precautions. Check social media and local advertisements for more information about the 7 Rivers Water Festival.
