River Jam Run: Race Edition

Thursday night means it’s time to hit the trails. Break out of your typical exercise routine in this weekday trail race on the second Thursday of every month from May until September. Each race in the series will feature a 5K-ish and a 10K-ish distance to keep with the relaxed competitive atmosphere of the evening. Awards will be given to the winners of each race as well as the winners of the series overall. To be considered for the series title, participants must race a minimum of three races of the same distance. Following the race, hang out and enjoy live music at the River Jam concert series.
