Rivertown Races is back for 2018!!! We are a family-friendly event with race options for people of all fitness levels.  We will again be running a 5k, and half marathon (13.1 miles)... and new for 2018, we are adding a 10k length.  The Rivertown Races event is located in beautiful Millennium Park, Walker, MI. Also new for 2018, the race start/finish will be located in the Meadows, across Maynard from the beach and playground area. 

In addition to providing top-notch races for beginners and elite athletes alike, 100% of the proceeds from Rivertown Races will be given to several great local charities.  That's right, 100%!  

Professional timing for Rivertown races is provided by Classic Race Management.

These races start and finish at beautiful 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.

If you are training for the Fifth Third River Bank Run, this half marathon fits in nicely with the suggested training schedule for that race. Please join us for our 6th year of Rivertown Races! More >
