Rivertown Races is an increasingly popular and professionally timed, family-friendly 1/2 Marathon, 10k, and 5k and is a favorite for many beginner and elite runners alike. These events start and finish at beautiful Meadows of Millennium Park, the largest urban park in the area, located in Walker, MI, southwest of Grand Rapids. Runners will travel over roads, paved trails, and bridges while enjoying the rolling terrain, wetlands, and lakes that encompass this unique location. Food and beverages, music, and family fun will be available throughout the event.
Important things to know about the lottery/reservations:
- The registration process will take you all the way through the normal process, including payment information, however, you will not actually be charged until we fully open the race.
- When you checkout you will get a notification that you are in the lottery/reservation system and will be notified if/when you are awarded a spot. At that point your card will be charged. These spots are given on a first come - first served basis. The earlier you register, the better. There is a 15 minute window to completely cancel your registration with RSU should you change your mind.
- The lottery process allows us to open up registration and holding off on charging athletes until we have full certainty from the governing authorities that we will be able to race. This also protects both you and us from a costly cancellation if COVID trends take another turn for the worst, or if we are denied our permit again in 2021.
- In the event that we do have to cancel, we simply will not fully open registration and you will not be charged. No reservation fees involved.
- Registration fees have been posted on our website: rivertownraces.com and on our RunSignUp page. We will have early bird prices from January 1-15... but they go up quickly, so don't wait!
