COSTUMED HEROES & VILLAINS FUN RUN!
The Arch Rivals Superhero Run is a unique 5k fun run that celebrates creativity as well as encourages getting and staying healthy!
Hundreds of participants wearing all kinds of costumes take part in a 3.1 mile run along the Truckee River in Reno, NV. Along the route we have a bunch of fun surprises to interact with.
Registration comes with a custom cape, all finishers receive an Arch Rivals water blaster and there’s a bunch of different trophies for fastest finishers as well as costume contests too!

FUN RUN COURSE
Our route is relatively flat and most of the course has tree cover scattered throughout.
The course starts at West Wingfield Park, West along the Truckee River path and through Idlewild Park, with some fun surprises along the route!
There is tons of parking around West Wingfield Park. If you choose a metered parking space, you can now pay the meters with a credit card.
If you’re looking for free parking, just a couple blocks north of Wingfield Park on Arlington you’ll see the Sands Regency lot!
OPTIONAL ADD-ON SHIRT
We make all our shirts to look like something you’d want to wear out with your friends- not just some throw-away race shirt! Add yours on for only $12 when you register. You must register no later than Fridya, July 14 to order a tshirt!
Shirts are $20 on race day until we sell out.
Our 2017 Shirts!
Keep Truckee Meadows Beautiful (KTMB), it is a nonprofit dedicated to beautification, advocating for a clean community, cleanups and education in the Truckee Meadows for over 25 years. They coordinate volunteer groups to help plant trees and flowers, clean up graffiti, and beautify parks, and hold large-scale cleanup events and recruit over 4,000 volunteers a year to help remove litter from the Truckee River, open spaces, neighborhoods and business corridors.
A portion of the proceeds from every Happy Athletics run goes to KTMB. Keeping our community clean is important to us, and so we thank everyone who comes out to the runs, which helps us support their cause.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
Technically, you can wear whatever you want. You could even run naked if you don’t mind running from the police (don’t run naked). BUT a huge part of what makes these events awesome is your costumes! We encourage you to dress in a superhero or villain theme, however you interpret that.
CAN I WALK?
CAN I BRING MY DOG?
Yes! Your dog must be on a leash and be able to stay under control. Your dog’s actions are your responsibility. Also, check to see if the pavement is too hot for your pup’s paws!
CAN I RUN WITH A STROLLER?
Yes! You don’t have to register your child who is in a stroller. Honestly, you could put a grown person in a stroller and you wouldn’t have to register them- that’d be hilarious.
IS THIS EVENT TIMED?
This is a fun run, not a chipped/timed event.
WHERE AND WHEN IS PACKET PICKUP?
To be announced!
CAN I PICK UP MY FRIEND’S PACKET?
You may pickup your friends race kits! You will need to make sure to bring a copy of their registration.
*Please note that we will be having Packet Pickup on race day but strongly encourage you to come the day before so you can avoid long lines.
WHAT SHOULD I BRING?
– Government issued ID if you plan to drink
– Cash for concessions and other merchandise.
– A copy of your registration. You may print or show an electronic copy!
