Run on the River - 2019

Sunday May 19, 2019


Return to GetMeRegistered event list Return to event website

Thank you for joining us for Run on the River on May 19, 2019. Volunteer opportunities span the entire Riverwalk, and every job is very important. Sign up in an area with your friends and family and celebrate a job well done at the Buoy Celebration afterwards.

As a volunteer, you will receive lunch and a beverage the day of the event. Plus, we hope you'll join us for the volunteer training meeting at Buoy Beer where drinks and snacks will also be provided. That important meeting is on Thursday, May 16 - at 5:30pm.

Run on the River is a fundraiser for the Astoria Parks Recreation and Community Foundation providing scholarships for individuals and families to access health and wellness opportunities through Astoria Parks and Recreation. Last year over $35K was raised, providing scholarships in our community. This would not be possible without volunteers like you helping the day of the race. See you then!
