The sixth annual Three Rivers 5K Run/Walk will be held on Saturday, May 3, 2014. The 5K Run will be a timed, competitive race, while the 5K Walk will be an untimed, non-competitive fitness event.
The 5K run/walk will start together at 8:30AM in Riverside Park. Walkers must start in the designated area behind the runners.
The course begins in Riverside Park by the Mississippi River and passes through downtown La Crosse on State St. to 6th St. It then turns right to King St. where it turns left and proceeds through several blocks of historic and stately homes to 11th St. There, a left turn takes the course to Main St. where another left leads back toward downtown. A right turn onto 7th St. takes the runners past City Hall and onto the paved bike path in the La Crosse River marsh. The course exits the bike path onto Front St. leading the runners back to State Street and into Riverside Park. Participants pass the large eagle statue as they cross the finish line next to the Mississippi River.
Registration opens at 12:01AM on Tuesday, October 1, 2013.
