River Town Run Half Marathon & 5K

Washington, MO


The 2nd Annual RiverTownRun is back! With nearly 350 participants in its first year, organizers have added new fun features to grow the event even more in 2015. The route includes something for everyone: flat and scenic views of the Missouri River, quaint and historic downtown Washington, wide open spaces in rural surroundings and rolling (and very challenging!) hills.

This race benefits Foundations for Franklin County, a local non-profit agency dedicated to creating a safe and drug-free community, and helping strengthen families impacted by the disease of addiction.

Entry fee includes finishers’ medals for EVERYONE, cotton T- shirts for Fun Run and 5K runners, and moisture wicking shirts for Half Marathoners, official RTR decal, runners’ bag of goodies and more!

Time Limit for Half Marathon Participants
Walkers are very welcome to participate in the RiverTownRun Half Marathon! However, we will need to close the race course according to a rolling 17 minute per mile pace, beginning at 8:30 am. If you would like to walk at a rate that is more relaxed, please just move off the streets and onto the sidewalk or shoulder, as we will need to reopen the roads to traffic. Race Course Volunteers will be available to direct you.

Official electronic finish line timing will conclude at 12:30 pm, which allows a little over 4 hours for participants to complete the Half Marathon and their time to be listed with Fleet Feet’s official Race Results Page. Participants who arrive after 12:30 will still receive an official Finisher’s Medal, provided they complete the race course by 2:00pm when the Runner’s Village /Finish Area will officially close for the day.
