run the river

Join us for this year’s Run the River 5k on Saturday, November 16th. 

The Green Spaces Run the River 5k Walk/Run will be held right before the 19th Annual Solar Fest at the same location. The chip-timed races and fun run start on Nueva Street at South Alamo, next to La Villita, follow along the river, visiting Southtown areas, before circling back in time for the kickoff of Solar Fest. Prizes will be awarded for winning times in several categories.

Show your love for Green Spaces Alliance by wearing your green or nature/garden-themed clothing, accessories or costumes in our fun run. This race is family friendly, dog-friendly, race-walker friendly and in the perfect time to burn some pre-Thanksgiving calories!

Packet pickup will be Friday, November 15, at Alamo Beer Co. and the morning of the race, Saturday, November 16 at 8am at the start line. (Register by November 8th to guarantee a shirt.)

The race will start at 8:30 am.

Solar Fest is a FREE, fun event, located at Hemisfair Park, hosted by Build San Antonio Green. Their festivities kick off at 10 am and run until 4 pm. Grab the family, grab a bike, or catch a bus to Hemisfair Park to start the day off right! Enjoy live music, local artisans, a variety of food trucks and engaging activities at the 2018 Solar Fest celebrating renewable energy, energy efficiency, and our beautiful city.  Race registration is $15 for under 18 yrs old, $35 for over 18 years of age.
