The #Run4Greenway is an event to raise awareness about the Downtown Greenway and a fundraiser to help us complete the Downtown Greenway as a visionary amenity for the city, its residents and visitors. The 2020 Run 4 the Greenway Virtual Challenge consists of a 4 mile run and 1 mile walk/run that you can run on your own schedule between October 17-31 and submit your results and photos on the RESULTS page and tag us at #Run4Greenway. Grab the family, your running group, or do it on your own-- although we always encourage you to run with a partner! There will also be a family-friendly scavenger hunt that you can do on the Downtown Greenway and throughout downtown to win prizes—learn about public art and neighborhood history along the Downtown Greenway.
We will have a Pop-up Packet Pick-Up on Saturday, October 17 from 1-5pm in LoFi Park (500 N. Eugene St)—stop by to pick up the race route and Run 4 the Greenway Neck Gaiter. Participants will have an option to purchase a run shirt this year which can also be picked up on October 17th. Swag will be mailed to participants who cannot stop by the pop-up packet pick-up-- all registered participants will get a Downtown Greenway neck gaiter.
We will have a closing virtual event on Sunday, November 1 from 4-5pm. Join us virtually on Facebook with live music, runner prizes from local downtown businesses and sponsors and Downtown Greenway trivia! Details will be emailed to challenge participants.
