A virtual run is underway to help raise donations to feed local first responders. How you participate in the Virtual River Run is completely up to you. You can run, jog, walk, bike, skip…whatever gets you excited to get up and get moving. You can do it on your home treadmill or stationary bike, around your neighborhood or local trails, or just by doing laps inside your house.
Participating is super simple: choose between the Battle Born and the Full Truckee then get moving. You complete the run at your own pace in your own home or neighborhood. When you’re finished, we’ll send you your medal and a donation to Feed Our Heroes – a group of Northern Nevada restaurants and sponsors committed to feeding our ER staff and first responders.
Pick Your Distance
Registration: $45 – Provides at least 3 meals from local restaurants to first responders
($35 for each additional family member living at the same address)Upon Completion: Includes a 5-inch Medal and 1 Entry into the Reno River Festival Raffle
The Battle Born is a 17K virtual run. Why 17K? That’s approximately the distance of the Truckee River from the Nevada-California state line to downtown Reno – the home of the Reno River Festival. This challenge can be completed in one shot for the experienced runner or spread out over several days or weeks depending on your schedule.
THE FULL TRUCKEE 121 MILES
Registration: $75 – Provides at least 5 meals from local restaurants to first responders
($65 for each additional family member living at the same address)
Upon Completion: Includes a 6-inch Medal and 5 Entries into the Reno River Festival Raffle
This is for all the bragging rights. A bigger commitment means a larger charitable donation on your behalf, more entries into our Reno River Festival raffle, and a bigger medal. The Truckee flows for 121 miles from Lake Tahoe into Pyramid Lake. You will be running the equivalent of the full length of our river. You’ll definitely have to spread this challenge out, but it’s not as daunting as it may seem. If you run, jog, walk, or bike roughly four miles a day, you will complete the Full Truckee in a month. That averages out to about an hour or a couple of sitcom episodes a day.
