About Run the River
Run the River is a 5K with a route that winds along the scenic Presumpscot River and through beautiful downtown Westbrook. This race features a 5K and a Canine 5K race!
This event is a fundraiser to benefit Discover Downtown Westbrook, a Main Street America community.
Registration is just $30! You can register on the day of the event for $40. There is a $10 discount for all students.
We have a group discount of $5 per person if you register with a group of 4 or more! If everyone signs up at once, you'll get the discount automatically. If you sign up at different times (using the team sign up feature - best for groups who are paying separately), you will receive a $5 refund once you have at least 4 members.
The first 75 runners will receive their official race t-shirt for free! After that, race shirts will be $18.00 (performance) or $10.00 for a shirt from last year's race! Don't want to race but want a shirt? Email firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll get you one!
The awards for ALL races will occur after all the races are completed, approximately 11 AM at Riverbank Park. For any winners who cannot stay until that time, we will connect with each one individually to get their award to them. Please be aware race results and award categories may be searchable online after the event.
While we do not anticipate the race being cancelled, if there is any extreme weather- e.g. thunderstorms, washed out course, etc. that causes a cancellation, the race will not be postponed and no refunds will be given. If there is less severe weather (e.g. light rain) and we still hold the race, no refunds will be given to those who choose not to race.
There are no refunds for any reason, but you may transfer your registration should you become unable to participate. Please contact email@example.com for details on how to transfer.
