Run On The River – CANCELED

May 16


The VIRTUAL Run on the River Half Marathon, 10k, and 5k sponsored by Buoy Beer Company and our local sponsors is May 16, 2021! We’re planning to be Virtual due to Covid-19 but will open up other options if they become available.

You don’t want to miss out on this great event. The best part is that all proceeds go to fund Astoria Parks and Recreation scholarships so that children and families in the area can access health and wellness opportunities through Parks and Recreation.

Due to Covid-19, this event will be a virtual event completed in the comfort of your own neighborhood or community. We will also provide the video of the Run on the River 5K route to run in the comfort of your own home. The Parks Department will be marking a Route on the Riverwalk for locals or visitors to follow (but you can run whatever course you want) at a safe time that works best for you. Participate anywhere/anytime during the Holidays. Post your results to the Run on the River Facebook page or email your results to Race Staff. Posting your results is just for fun and not required.

Thank you for signing up and for supporting our Astoria Parks, Recreation and Community Foundation fundraiser this year. We are thrilled to provide our registered participants a $20 voucher from Buoy Beer Co, a fun race t-shirt and our signature glass medal. You’ll also receive a link to the ‘Run-a-long the Columbia River Video’ which is customized for each race length and led by a couple of our amazing local runners.

We will miss you all on race day but hope that you will share the photos of your run and will brag about your swag once it arrives. Let’s all celebrate this very unique accomplishment together – virtually.

The VIRTUAL RUN can be accomplished in the comfort of your own home or on your favorite route in your community while maintaining your 6-foot personal space bubble in order to accomplish responsible social distancing. We’ll send you a Run on the River 2021 t-shirt, a finisher’s medal, and a voucher to be redeemed at Buoy Beer Co. You will also receive a HUGE thanks for helping us provide future scholarships for kids’ swim lessons and youth sports.

We look forward to seeing your Virtual Run highlights on social media. #runontheriver #virtualrun

Thank you for being a part of our amazing community of runners and volunteers and most of all for helping us raise funds in our community. We can not do this without you.
