RUN LIKE THE RIVER
Embrace the Race Theme
Like the current of a river, long-distance runners are strong and swift. “Run Like the River” is meant to inspire the runners and conjure up thoughts of the Mississippi, overlooking which they’ll begin and end their race.
2022's race theme, "Run Like the River", will be brought to life in race swag, finisher medals, entertainment and more.
