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.

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