REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN!
On Saturday, November 3rd, 2018, come out and join us in the last race of the running season! Run the River is a community event sponsored by Ryan’s Pharmacy and Liv9 Nutrition in support of the Nackawic Bend Ski Club’s SKIS IN SCHOOLS initiative. Race central is held at the Nackawic Shopping Mall, overlooking the majestic Saint John River and the World’s Largest Axe. Distances are a 10K run, 3K/5K walk/run, and a 1K Kids Fun Run.
Returning this year, you can register for our Run the River TEAM CHALLENGE! Although we are still focusing our fundraising efforts on our Skis in Schools initiative, you now have the chance to win $100 towards a non-profit organization of your team’s choice, by registering as a TEAM. For team registration, one person must take the lead as the “Team Creator” and register a team name and password during the registration process. After the team is created, all other members will be able to join when they register by entering and selecting that chosen team name and password.
