Virtual Great River Road Run 2020
We are hosted a Virtual Great River Road Run this year due to the ongoing pandemic.
The Virtual Great River Road Run has completed!
Thank you all for participating in this years Virtual Race!
Whether you ran in one of the races, 5k - 5 Mile - 10 Mile, or completed the Triple Crown!
Our virtual race was a huge SUCCESS!
The Great River Road Run for 2020 went virtual this year and we could have asked for a better turnout. We were hoping to get 100 runners registered, and we ended up at 98 runners registered. Which is amazing! It is going to help our club survive the year and keep us going next year. Our next official event would be scheduled for June 2021, our Kids Summer Running Series, and we hope that we will be able to hold the event come June. Please visit our main website AltonRoadRunners.org to keep up with the latest information on the club!
What your virtual race will help?
The Alton Road Runners Club is a non-profit organization. Our main source of fundraising for everything we do comes from the Great River Road Run. Unfortunately the race this year will just not be possible with the current world we are living in. That is why we are hosting a Virtual Great River Road Run this November.
We always have a great turn out for the race and it is what funds all of our other community races and events.This race helps fund our Summer Running Series in the summer, with the Alton Memorial Family Run, the Pee Wee Run, and the Dash-n-Glow. With each race providing a T-shirt, refreshments, or prizes. Another event this helps us do is the Track Series in June, helping us put on five days of racing around the track and EAWR HS. And the last event it helps us do is our wonderful Cross Country Runner of the Year Banquet. An event that brings together 15 high schools from around the area to honor their outstanding runners from the Cross Country Season.
Your race and all of our proceeds will go towards putting on all of these amazing events that help bring the community together and to promote running to the younger generation and help build and maintain the sport that we all love. If you have any questions about our events or the club you can find answers here.
We appreciate all of those that will run the virtual race and helps our club put on all of our yearly events in the future.
