About Chip Timing

The Half Marathon, 10k, and 5k runs are bib chip-timed by US Road Running. You will receive your bib chip in your bag at Packet-Pickup. You MUST have your bib chip on race day to get an official result. NO CHIP = NO TIME!

Discount Premium Shirt Option

We’ve heard you! You've said you are tired of getting another cheap race shirt that you never wear, so in lieu of that we offer runners an optional upgrade to purchase a premium River Valley Run race shirt for only $15 during online registration (with an order cut off date of October 3rd). If you would like to add a tshirt to an existing registration, simply log into your RunSignup account and add it there. If supplies last we may also have limited sizes available at packet pickup or race day for $25.
