APRIL 6, 2019 - RACE DAY9

The 19th Annual Riverwalk Run

Lace up your sneakers and join us for the 18th Annual Riverwalk Run at Huizenga Plaza on Saturday, April 6, 2019. Hosted by the Junior League of Greater Fort Lauderdale this event impacts 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.

Once again, the “Kid’s Fun Run” will offer a 1K course lined with parents and volunteers to cheer them on.  Post-race festivities include a fabulous champagne brunch, activities for kids and an awards ceremony for top race finishers. 

Do you have Furry Friend who'd like to tag along? This year friendly dogs are welcome and they can enjoy their very own Doggy Fun Zone at the event.  Just be sure to sign them up, and don't forget a leash!

*Strollers welcome. 

*Serious Runners: Staggered starts for each participating category will be in place.
