Run to the River cancelled for 2013

The popular Run to the River 5k/10k, originally scheduled for this Saturday, will not be taking place this year.

A source at Fulton’s Neighborhood Resource Center said that Rocketts Landing, the naming sponsor since the inaugural race in 2008, withdrew their support this year. The Run to the River website indicates that the race may return in 2014.

Attempts to contact Rocketts Landing by phone, email, and Facebook were unsuccessful.

No. It sounds like this happened a while ago, maybe as far back as June – I just found out about it 2 days before the race.

Perhaps you can contact the NRC and offer to help?

Thanks for posting, John. As I understand it, Rocketts declined sponsorship several months ago. The Neighborhood Resource Center (NRC) has been looking for a sponsor to replace for quite a while. The race has been the primary private fundraising event for several years. RRRC has been helpful with race timing I believe. But for complete race management, they typically have a very full race calendar with multiple events scheduled every weekend of the year.

If you don’t know about the NRC, check it out. They offer all kinds of educational and health programs for people of ages living in the East End — from a small Montessori preschool for neighborhood kids to an organic learning garden, after-school tutoring, and a jobs program for adults, plus much more. It’s located in the old post office in Fulton Hill.

The event has been cancelled for months, via the website. I went to register a few months ago and couldn’t.
