Riley’s Run is almost here! It is going to be an incredibly fun and beautiful course! Here is some information to help you pick up your stuff and have a flawless run:)

Parking--When you pull into the HIdden Valley WIldlife Area (11401 Arlington Ave, Riverside, CA --off Arlington Ave, directly across from the cemetery), you will follow the road approximately 1 mile to the Nature Center (there will be signs directing you). WHen you reach the Nature Center, Parking will be on the right in a dirt field. There will be signs and volunteers directing you to the parking area. You will have to drive across the paved bike path so be cautious and on the look out for both people and bikes! Parking in this area will open at 6:30 am. At 7:45 this parking will close, as we have to have the course clear. If you do not arrive by 7:45, you can park in any of the dirt lots along the mile-long road as you drive in.
Race Morning--Come early and stay late! Check out our vendor expo, our Aortic Health Info book (there will be a Plinko game--$1 to drop your disc!--to win candy, shirts, and a free entry to next year’s race!), and The Nature Center (it will be open for us!). After finishing the race all participants will earn a medal and can grab fresh fruit and a re-usable Riley’s Run water bottle full of thirst quenching water to reward your 5k effort:)
Vendor Expo: Don’t forget to bring some spending money! We will have Girl Scout Cookies, Lularoe Leggings, Pain Products, Max Muscle and more at the start/finish area. Riley’s Run will also have a booth with information on Aortic Health and a Fun Game--PLINKO! $1 to drop your disc and try your luck--everyone is a winner--candy, shirts, or even a free race entry to Riley’s Run 2018!.
