This year's theme will be “80's for 80” encouraging runners and walkers to dress in 80's dress to celebrate the Junior League of Greater Fort Lauderdale's 80th anniversary. There will be prizes for best dressed runner, team and pet! Join us afterwards for a light brunch and kids acitivities. This amazing race experience supports the Junior League’s efforts to raise funds for important community causes such as Human Trafficking Awareness, Transiting Independent Living for Foster Care Adolescents, Childhood Fitness and Nutrition, and more!

About the Run:
The beautifully designed USATF certified course highlights the best of Fort Lauderdale. Beginning at Huizenga Plaza on Las Olas Boulevard, the course runs along the South Bank of the New River, wanders through the shady neighborhood streets of breathtaking Rio Vista, cuts through Smoker Park with view of the New River and the historic Stranahan House, and finishes on the signature brick path of the Riverwalk.
Riverwalk Run is more than just a simple run. For the “big kids”, we offer a 5 mile course as well as a 5k course, both of which are perfect for running or walking. This year, Kids’ Fun Run will feature a 40 yard fun dash, great for kids of all ages.
The 17th annual Riverwalk Run will take place on Saturday, April 1, 2017 at 8:00am.
Riverwalk Run will take place at Huizenga Plaza, located at 32 East Las Olas Boulevard in downtown Fort Lauderdale.
