Run the River 2020

Join us for this year’s Run the River 5k during the month of November. 

Our 4th Annual Green Spaces Run the River 5k Walk/Run is going virtual!  We could not let COVID-19 stop us putting on our anticipated family fun race. While things will look different than past years we assure that the same fun and competitive spirit will be felt.

Instead of having 1 day to complete the 5k we are giving you the control to complete this race at your own pace, in your desired

location and on your own time. The race will last the entire month of November giving you all of the flexibility and time you may need to get those miles in. Complete it all in one day or over the course of the month, the choice is yours!

Itching for that competitive atmosphere that you get on race day? Don’t worry we’ve got you covered! Each week we will be holding challenges to be completed as you work towards hitting that 5k. At the end of each challenge participants will be entered into a raffle to win great prizes each week! After all 4 challenges have been completed we will be giving out one huge prize. Each challenge completed = one entry into the final raffle. There are 4 challenges total so you can get a max 4 entries into the final raffle for completing all of the challenges! Think you have what it takes to complete them all?







Week 1: Bulverde Oaks Challenge

– Visit us at Bulverde Oaks for a 1 mile self-led hike through the preserve. There will be a presentation on bees, information on programs and all of the sights that the preserve has to offer!

Week 2: Garden Challenge

– Run/Walk to the nearest community garden near you. If you do not live near any community gardens head over to your closest natural area. Snap a selfie on your way to let us know that you visited! You’ll be surprised at how much natural beauty you can find right in your own neighborhood!

Week 3 Challenge: River Challenge

– Head to the river walk to get a taste of our typical race day route! Run/Walk along the river. How far can you go along the river? Take a photo of your river view!

Week 4: Create Your Own Route

– It’s time to work off those Turkey Day calories and we want to see how you like to get active! Whether its running on a treadmill, jogging along a nature trail, or taking a stroll with family and friends for some fresh air we want to see your preferred route! Take a picture to compare with others racers!
