About This Activity

In the best interest of our members and our community, the Junior League of Greater Fort Lauderdale has made the decision to postpone this year’s Riverwalk Run, scheduled for April 4th, 2020. We were very sad to come to this conclusion, as our League and our community has greatly valued the run over the past 20 years, however we feel this is the course of action needed to ensure the safety of our community at this time.

Lace up your sneakers and join us for the 20th Annual Riverwalk Run at Huizenga Plaza on Saturday, April 4, 2020. Hosted by the Junior League of Greater Fort Lauderdale, this event raises funds to help members of the Junior League of Greater Fort Lauderdale continue improving the surrounding community.

The Riverwalk Run is a day of fitness and fun for the whole family as well as serious runners. All fitness levels are encouraged to attend! Options include running the 5 mile USATF Certified Course or the 5K course. A separate 5K Fitness walk start is perfect for those who wish to take a slower pace.

Once again, the "Kids Fun Run" will offer a sprint course lined with parents and volunteers to cheer them on. Post-race festivities include a brunch with local vendors, activities for kids, and an awards ceremony for top race finishers. 

Do you have a Furry Friend who would like to tag along? Friendly, well-behaved dogs are welcome. Just be sure to sign them up, and don't forget a leash! 

* Strollers welcome. 

**Serious Runners: Staggered starts for each participating category will be in place.
