It’s back!

The third River Center Run is scheduled for Saturday, May 11, and for the second year in a row the 5-kilometer course goes along Washington Street.

Registration begins at 8:30 a.m. and the race starts at 10:20 a.m. Participants are encouraged to preregister.

The course begins and ends at the JCPenney parking lot near the intersection of Seventh Avenue and Washington Street. Water and snacks are provided at the start/finish of the course and there is one water stop along the course.

The course closes promptly at 10:55 a.m. in time for the Irrigation Festival’s car parade; any remaining walkers will be asked to exit the streets to the sidewalks.

Awards go to the top three male and female racers, and top finishers in six age categories: under 18, 18-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59 and 60 and older.

Sponsored by Sequim Gym, the race helps fund the Dungeness River Audubon Center and Irrigation Festival.
