Montgomery’s annual foot race, the River Run, is a little more than a month away and the Village is looking for runners and volunteers.
2013 marks the 10th anniversary of the race, and to celebrate the Village has expanded the event to include a 10k as well as the regular 5k.
The race is being presented by the Village and the event’s Gold Level Sponsors: Dairy Queen Grill & Chill of Montgomery; Engineering Enterprises, Inc.; Ozinga and Rush-Copley Medical Center.
“Our sponsors are so important to the event’s success,” said Lauren Stott, Montgomery’s River Run coordinator. “The Village extends a heartfelt ‘thank you’ to these generous donors.”
Both the 5k and the 10k will start at 9 a.m. on October 5, 2013, with day-of registration opening at 7:30 a.m.
“The expansion [to a 10k] is very exciting,” Stott said. “We hope it will bring out a whole new division of competition for this fun event.”
Participants in the 5k, 10k or the kids’ 100 yard dash are invited to register for the race online at signmeup.com or fill out a registration form at Village Hall, 200 North River Street.
Participations that register before September 13 will be guaranteed a goody bag with race t-shirt, Stott said.
The Village is also seeking volunteers for the event day from 6:30 a.m.-noon; interested parties are asked to call 630-896-8080 ext. 1117.
