CHECK-IN WILL OPEN AT 7:30 AM AT THE VENUE. THERE WILL BE A WARM UP DANCE PARTY UNTIL THE FITNESS CHALLENGE BEGINS AT 9:00 AM.
The 5K Run begins in a divided start chute. Fans of each team MUST line up wearing school colors or costumes with YOUR SCHOOL! The Rival Run will be start in waves which are filled on a first come, first served basis. The run course is divided and first before blending after a hundred yards or so.
The exact length of the run is about 5K. Our courses are NOT certified, and are not timed. The Rival Run celebrates all participants - runners, walkers and dancers! Participants walking should stay to the right, and allow faster runners to pass you on the left side of the course. If you would like a finish time we recommend you self-time the event using a phone app or other method. Participants walking should stay to the right, and allow faster runners to pass you on the left side of the course. There will be a water station at roughly the halfway mark of the run.
Participants who finish the run will receive a 2016 Finisher Medal at the FINISH LINE!
Post Run Festivities:
After your run, The Rival Run party really never stops. We rock out and have fun contests, music and photo opportunities at the Finish Party. Spend your morning with us and grab a bite to eat - let's have a BLAST!
The Rival Run will host a packet pick up off site the week of the event. This information will be posted to our website and all participants will be emailed with the most current information about two weeks prior to the event.
Parking & Transportation
It is always a good idea to carpool to save money and make your drive more fun. We'll post more information about parking and approved lots in the Pre-Event packet.

Community / Charity Involvement
The Rival Run is proud to work nationally on raising awareness and funding for organizations dedicated to stopping Domestic Violence in its tracks and providing a safe haven for victims of domestic violence while supporting them through improving their circumstances. Individually each Rival Run location may select one or multiple local charities it supports in the local communities it serves. In addition - we often partner with local Charities who help supply us with volunteer labor in exchange for a payment or donation. Local non-profits may contact us here.
