38th Annual Riverside Run Set for May 13

Riverside School is hosting the 38th annual Riverside Run on Saturday, May 13, 2023, commencing at 8:30am.

For 38 years, this community event has taken runners on a scenic three-mile course through the neighborhood of Riverside.

The Riverside Run includes the main run, as well as a series of “Fun Runs” for children in Kindergarten through 5th grade.

The Fun Runs take place in the front of Riverside School. All participants will receive ribbons, and trophies will be given to those who earn top places.

“The Riverside Run is an event that brings our school and community together every year,” said Christopher Weiss, Riverside School Principal. “We are looking forward to cheering on our staff, students and families who participate in various ways to make this tradition happen.”

The first 500 participants will receive a race t-shirt and a take-away gift bag. Timing mats will be at the start and finish line to ensure accurate timing for the main run. Race day is Saturday, May 13th , rain, or shine. The races will begin at 8:30am for the three-mile run and 9:30am for the Kids Fun Run.

Online registration is now open to the public at www.rivpta.org. The event also accepts “day of” registration, until 30 minutes before race time. The registration fee for the three-mile run is $30, and the registration fee for the Kids Fun Run is $15. Proceeds from the event benefit PTA programs that enrich classroom curriculum and support teachers and staff.

The Riverside Run is a public event and members of the press are invited to attend. Please email [email protected] with questions.
