Invest in and celebrate the river’s renaissance by traversing this river trail with hundreds of fellow runners and revelers at the Race for the River 5K. Based at River Park, join Friends of the Chicago River in exploring the North Shore Channel trail and recent river edge improvements that expand the health and climate resiliency of the Chicago-Calumet River system and support equitable, open access for all.

Support Friends and become a sponsor of this completely unique nature and run experience! Your support makes this event possible and helps Friends to protect and restore the Chicago-Calumet River system for all people, water, and wildlife.

By contributing to our Race for the River, you make a direct impact on the health of the 156-mile Chicago-Calumet River system and support clean water, heathy habitats, and public access for everyone no matter where they live. Your sponsorship stays local supporting jobs, local businesses, and public health. Additionally, your contribution keeps this event accessible to all in our region who wish to participate. Friends is a 501(c)3 organization, and a portion of your sponsorship is tax-deductible.
