Dear River Relays Race Participant,


Welcome and thank you for supporting River Relays 5k that starts at 8am on Sunday, July 22, 2018.  The Georgetown Running Club is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to promote and encourage running, walking, and fitness in the community and to provide competitive and non-competitive activities for its members and the general public.

Course – Starts at 8am – Look for red canopy tent (west of river parking lot)

Each team member will run counter-clockwise 1 loop (1.55 miles) of the San Gabriel Trail.

There will be water and AdvoCare at the race start and finish.  As well as bagels and bananas.

If we get volunteers then there will be course monitors at both locations that cross the park road, but please use caution as the road is NOT closed to traffic.


Timing – Bib on 2nd team member (on the front)

Only the 2nd runner on each team should be wearing a number.  A 5k time for the team will be tracked but it is up to you to time each person if you would like to know your splits.  When the 2nd runner finishes they will be handed a finish card.  Make sure you give that to a finish line volunteer.
