Annual River Run to have altered route

McHENRY – The McHenry Parks and Recreation Department will host the annual River Run running-walking event for all ages on Tuesday, July 16. 

Check-in is from 5:45 pm to 6:20 p.m. at Veteran’s Memorial Park, 3400 Pearl St. The race time is 6:35 p.m. for the 3-mile fun run and 6:45 p.m. for the 7.1-mile run. Each race starts at Veteran’s Memorial Park and finishes at Weber's Park.

This year due to the road construction on Johnsburg Road, the race will detour through the Dutch Creek Woodlands subdivision. The race will be 0.3 miles longer than the original route. 

The course will be posted with signs throughout the detour.  A map or the revised course is on the City of McHenry's website.

Registration forms are available online at www.ci.mchenry.il.us and at the Parks and Recreation Department.

Entry applications should be turned into the McHenry Parks and Recreation Department office by Friday.  Online registration will end Sunday. 

The advance registration fee is $15. The fee the night of the race is $20. Fees include the cost of shirts (while supplies last) and awards.
