Due to COVID precautions, the event will be a Virtual 5K this year - the normal Kids' 1K is removed and kids will be encouraged to complete 1K per day for 5 days - kids under the age of 12 will have an extra treat in their race packets
**If COVID restrictions are listed, we will plan to have an in-person event on/near Memorial Day **
Every year, proceeds from the race will be donated to a previously selected child in the River Valley area who is battling a devastating illness. The race brings together people of all ages to engage in a healthy activity. Attendees and spectators get to enjoy supporting their neighbors, family and friends- all while dressed as their favorite Superhero!
Take this chance to be a SUPERHERO to a special child today!
Supporting the Cause
The River Valley Superhero 5K is an annual event hosted to benefit children with cancer and other serious illnesses or injuries. You can read about their stories at www.rivervalleysuperhero5k.org.
About the Event
We encourage you to dress up as your favorite superhero for the race, even though it will likely be done from your own neighborhood. We love our participants to take photos and share them on our Facebook and/or Instagram pages!
Your race packet will include a number bib, Superhero Race t-shirt, finisher medal, and the satisfaction of supporting a great cause!
How to Complete Race and Packet Pickup
We will do an in-person drive-thru packet pickup for local participants on multiple days in the last week of April. If you would like your packet shipped, there will be an extra $5 charge.
Participants will complete their 5K at their convenience any time May 1-16. If participants would like to report their results, they can do so online.
We encourage all participants to upload photos on our Facebook and/or Instagram pages to promote community involvement and support for our Superhero!
