WASHINGTON, MO. - The 4nd Annual RiverTownRun will take place on Saturday, May 13, 2017 in Washington, Missouri.
The race will begin at 7:30 am at the start/finish area located at Fairgounds Park, 1220 Lakeshore Drive. About 500 runners and their families are expected to participate.
This USA Track and Field (USTAF) Certified Half Marathon route includes something for everyone: flat and scenic views of the Missouri River, quaint and historic downtown Washington, wide open spaces in rural surroundings and very challenging hills! The 5K route takes runners along Front Street downtown, then back up into the park to the finish line.
All proceeds from the race support Foundations for Franklin County, a volunteer-led non-profit agency dedicated to creating a safe, healthy, and drug-free community.
By collaborating with other service providers, Foundations connects people with programs that work together to meet their needs, and addressing issues like homelessness, substance misuse, mental health, and family and community support.
Entry fee includes finishers’ medal, shirt, and official RTR swag bag containing decals and sponsor goodies. Teams of 10 or more earn an extra thank you gift for their runners.
Commemorative plaques will be presented to the fastest male and female runners in the half marathon and the 5K, and 1, 2 and 3rd place medals will be awarded in each age category for each race.
