    Is tonight’s river jam run only the race edition or are you still doing the 1.5 mile as well?

    • usnwcadmin July 9, 2015 at 2:04 pm

      Hey Jim, the normal meet up run will take place at 6:30 at the Trail Center as usual.

    So from what I understand the only fee involved is the $5 parking pass. Is this true? And where do you preregister for the race? Or is there no preregistration because there are no fees?

    • usnwcadmin July 2, 2015 at 11:42 am

      Hey Ryan, that is correct there is no registration fee for River Jam Run since it is a weekly run club meetup (and hence there is also no registration needed at all). We have a Race Edition event on the second THursday of every month as well that is a timed race. You can find more information at River Jam Run: Race Edition.

    On the website it says the trail is closed today. On this page it says the event will happen rain or shine. Will the River Jam run still be held although the trails are closed?

    • usnwcadmin June 8, 2015 at 2:47 pm

      Hey JBound, yes that is correct, the Run will take place every week even when the trails are closed. No other trail access is permitted during trail closure.

    Is there a fee other than the parking fee, to run?

    • usnwcadmin May 28, 2015 at 10:17 am

      Hey Jenna, there is no fee to participate in River Jam Run.

    Are dogs not permitted on the course at any time. I would like to casually walk the tail when I visit and I like to bring my dog. I didn’t realize certain areas of the park were off limits for dogs. Please clarify.

    Thank you

      Hi Ms. Ward, dogs are permitted on the trails. Please be advised that all trails at the USNWC are mixed use so there will be runners, mountain bikers, etc. present. Also, please check the Trail Status at http://www.usnwc.org prior to your visit to ensure the trail system is open. Thanks
