Visalia River Run has been cancelled for 2020

It is with a heavy heart that the Visalia River Run has been cancelled for the year of 2020. Due to the COVID-19 situation all parks and recreation permits have been cancelled and our venue at Golden West is shut down. As many of you know our race is a fundraiser for the band and orchestra here at Golden West High School. Yesterday it was released the VUSD will remain closed past May 4th. 

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and look forward to seeing you next year. Please consider donating your entry fee to help costs that have already accrued for this race. 

We are issuing full refunds and you will receive an email to confirm your refund has been issued. At that point it will take 5-7 banking days for funds to be available for use. For questions, please contact me at Please be patient with my answers as this is a new scenario and I will be communicating with Runsignup for most of your questions

Here Are Your Options:

Please understand that events are expensive, even when cancelled, and you want us to keep your registration fees to help cover our costs. We deeply appreciate your generosity and look forward to seeing you at an event soon. This money will go towards transportation costs, purchasing sheet music, festival fees, and many other educational events for our students. 

We understand. We hope you can join us May 8th, 2021. Remember our race is always the second Saturday of May. Again, thank you for choosing our event this year.
