Sweet swag!

Amway River Bank Run presented by Fifth Third Bank with Spectrum Health the Official Health Partner has a new name (title sponsor) but is the same race celebrating its 42nd year in downtown Grand Rapids, Michigan on May 11, 2019.   The ownership and title sponsor has changed, but the team responsible for organizing the event for many years is still behind the scenes keeping it a premier event in West Michigan.

The Amway River Bank Run features the largest 25K road race in the country; offers the only 25K Wheelchair racing division in the world along with a 25K Handcycle division. The Amway River Bank Run has been the site of the USATF 25K National Championships since 1995 and runs concurrently with the 25K event bringing excitement to the finish line.   In addition to the 25K, participants can choose from the 25K Relay, 10K Run, 5K Run, Team Competition, 5K Community Walk and River Bank Run Junior Wednesday, May 8.

The Amway River Bank Run offers the only 25K Wheelchair racing division in the world along with a 25K Handcycle division.

The 25K course offers a view of Grand Rapids with long stretches along the Grand River, neighborhoods, woods, the hills that lead to and from Millennium Park, capped off on either end with start-finish in downtown Grand Rapids.     The 10K and 5K courses wind through the west and north neighborhoods of the downtown area.    The Sports and Fitness Expo runs on Friday, May 10 with over 100 vendors featuring the latest in running gear, a Perrin beer garden, FREE relaxation area with massages and mini-manis, RBR Shop and more.
