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.  Staggered starts for each participating category will be in place.

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 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!

The Riverwalk Run will begin at 8:00 a.m. with same day registration and fun activities beginning at 6:45 a.m. The cost of the event is $45. The Kids’ Fun Run costs $10 in advance and $20 on race day.  And for that special pup, the cost is $10 - even on race day!

More than 1,000 runners are anticipated, so register now to secure your spot and visit: www.RiverwalkRun.com for more information and updates.
