Amway River Bank Run presented by Fifth Third Bank with Spectrum Health, the Official Health Partner, is held in downtown Grand Rapids, Michigan. There is something for everyone!
We are looking forward to 2021 and having the streets of Grand Rapids filled with the largest 25K road race in the country and the USA 25 km Open Championships. We are hopeful and optimistic that we will be able to host a safe in-person event on our traditional second Saturday in May,and are working through contingency plans if restrictions are still in place. For instance, extension of event start times on Saturday or moving the 5K and 10K to Sunday, May 9. West Michigan is busy with events every weekend and we also plan to have a postponement date determined for September-October soon. Join us and participate in one or multiple events which include a 25K Run, 25K Handcycle, 25K Wheelchair, 10K Run, 5K Run and 5K Community Walk.
In addition to our in-person events, we offer virtual events that give individuals an opportunity to participate by completing the distance of their choice (25K, 10K, 5K, or 5K walk) on the course of their choice and day that works between May 1 and May 31. Each virtual event offers extended finishing times (unlike the in-person course cutoffs) and having flexibility makes the Virtual Race a great option, plus you receive all the commemorative RBR Race Swag.
In 2021, the Amway River Bank Run will celebrate our 44th year running in Downtown Grand Rapids or virtually anywhere!
