Heroes & Villains Compete, then Party Together!
Info below describes our 2016 event- full info for 2017 coming in March!
At the Arch Rivals Run you can live out your dreams over the course of five kilometers. Be Superman or Lex Luthor. Be Spiderman. Be Wonder Woman. Be anybody who might get us in trouble for mentioning trademarked names- it’s up to you! You get to run (or walk) as whoever you have always dreamed of being- and if that doesn’t jazz you up you should check out our photos, because the people who have raced before you had the happiest time of their lives.
For more pics from our Arch Rivals runs check out our photos page!

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.
HOW LONG IS THE RUN?
Its 5k or 3.10686 miles to be exact.
CAN I WALK?
CAN I BRING MY DOG?
Yes! Your dog must be on a SHORT 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?
YES! This will be a chipped/timed event.
WHERE AND WHEN IS PACKET PICKUP?
That’s answered above.
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!
– Spectators are welcome
