Final Leg: Run The River For The Ridge: September 15th
"Run the River for The Ridge" is the final leg of the "Charity Challenge." The Run will take place on Saturday, September 15th at the Hidden Valley Wildlife Area. To complete the challenge, you are able to choose between the 5K and Half Marathon. Your support will assist our mission by providing a community of loving homes and empowering support services for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
Run the River for the Ridge is an annual 1K, 5K and Half Marathon
Peppermint Ridge, local businesses and the community come together for a morning filled with fitness, love and happiness. Participants run along a paved path adjacent to the Santa Ana River. This course is low to medium difficulty, perfect for first timers! The overall male and female finisher in the Half Marathon and 5K receive a special gift. Participant medals are awarded to every finisher in all races. In the Half Marathon and 5K, placement medals will be awarded to the top three male and female in each age division. All 5K and Half Marathon participants receive a Sport-Tek shirt and back pack.
Temporary Course Revision:
Due to construction by the City of Riverside, the half marathon course has “legs” that will be repeated more than in previous years. The good news is that this route does not go by the Water Treatment Plant. Thank you for your patience during this transition.
Half Marathon Time Limit:
The half marathon course will close 4 hours after the beginning of the race. At that time, all half marathon participants will be taken back to the starting point.
