Montgomery's Annual 5K and 10K River Run

The 5K and 10K River Run takes place every year on the first Saturday of October! The U.S.A. Track and Field (USATF) certified course starts and finishes in front of the Village Hall at 200 North River Street in Montgomery. (Certification Code: IL-06047-JW and IL-1317-JW) The course goes up and down both sides of the scenic Fox River. Splits will be given at every mile. There is an overhead digital clock at the finish line. The race will be chip timed by J3 Timing. Water station and first aid are available on the course. Post-race goodies will also be available.
