Dear RTR Friends,

Based on the recommendation of our medical director and other public officials, we have decided to transition Running the Rapids 5K, half marathon and half marathon relay to virtual races this year. This was not an easy decision. It has been our pleasure to:


  • attract individuals to our community which we care so deeply about
  • witness people reaching their personal and fitness goals and
  • help create a memorable experience for everyone involved in the race.

Given the current uncertainty regarding gatherings of large numbers of people, we felt it was in the best interest of all indivduals involved in the race to make this decision. Honoring the commitment of individuals currently registered as well as others interested, the Running the Rapids planning committee is working hard to offer as meaningful of an experience as possible within advised guidelines.


With the understanding, patience, and support of all the individuals and organizations involved with Running the Rapids, we look forward to returning to our beloved course for the biggest and best event in 2021.


We hope you join us in our first-ever virtual 5K and marathon. Click below to sign up! If you have questions, please reach out to us at runningtherapids@gmail.com

Thank you,

Running the Rapids Committee
