Before the Event

Register Online

While race day registration may be available, we encourage you to register online ahead of time, as we expect to fill to capacity. Online registration will end on August 12 at 11:59. You may also register at one of our packet pickups and on race day morning.

Packet Pick-Up

We strongly encourage you to come to our off-site packet pickup PRIOR to the race to get your packet. There will also be race day packet-pickup on-site from 5:30-7am. When you come, please remember to BRING A PRINTOUT OF YOUR EMAIL CONFIRMATION OR YOUR PHOTO ID for packet pick-up. This is for your safety, to make sure someone else does not walk off with your race kit. If you are picking up for a friend/friends, you must have their confirmation as well (or a photo of their ID/confirmation email on your phone).

About Chip Timing

The 15k, 10k, and 5k runs are bib chip-timed, by Race Result Timing System. 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 $20 during online registration. 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 will also have shirts available at packet pickup and on race day for $25.

NOTE: We may have limited supply of these shirts.  First come first, served. 

2019 Women's Trail Race Shirt
2019 Men's Trail Race Shirt


Race volunteers needed! We are looking for high school students and older to help with registrations, race set-up and tear-down, the post-race round-up, and much more. All volunteers receive a free performance shirt. If you are interested in volunteering, you can find and register for a position on our Volunteer Page.

Cancellation Policy

The River Valley Run does not allow for refunds of entry fees. However, we understand that circumstances arise so you may defer your registration or downgrade your race event:


If you become injured or circumstances arise that keep you from participating in the River Valley Run in any capacity in 2019, you may defer your entry to 2020. Deferments are for one year's use only and cannot be applied to subsequent years after that time. There is a $10 processing fee to do so. You will need to fill out a form on the bottom of our registration page to defer up until August 10.


If you would like to switch races (eg- from 15K to 10K, 5K to 10K, etc...), or transfer your registration to another person, you may do so for a $10 fee. You can do this yourself through your RunSignup account up until August 10.
