About This Activity

Join the Junior League of Greater Fort Lauderdale as we run along the New River and the historic neighborhood of Rio Vista during the 16th annual Riverwalk Run! This amazing race experience supports the Junior League’s efforts raises funds for important community causes such as Human Trafficking Awareness, Childhood Fitness and Nutrition, and more!

The beautifully designed USATF certified course highlights the best of Fort Lauderdale. Beginning at Huizenga Plaza on Las Olas Boulevard, the course runs along the South Bank of the New River, wanders through the shady neighborhood streets of breathtaking Rio Vista, cuts through Smoker Park with view of the New River and the historic Stranahan House, and finishes on the signature brick path of the Riverwalk.

Race Options
Riverwalk Run is more than just a simple run. For the “big kids”, we offer a 5 mile course as well as a 5k course, both of which are perfect for running or walking. This year, Kids’ Fun Run will feature a 40 yard fun dash, great for kids of all ages.
