Are you excited? We’re excited! The 5th Annual Arch Rivals Superhero Run is TOMORROW and we can’t wait to see you all there! Here’s the rundown so you can be prepared!
What time/Where is Packet Pickup?
You can pick up your race packets from 5-8pm at The Jungle (coffee shop and bar) at 246 W 1st St in downtown, right by the race start and finish location, Wingfield Park!
At packet pickup you’ll receive:
- Your race bib
- Race map
- Collectable Art Print
- Superhero Cape!
- Water Blaster
- Any T-Shirt(s) you purchased
You can also register for the race at packet pickup, if you haven’t already done that! We’ll also have some T-Shirts for sale too!
What Time & Where is the Race?
The race begins at 9am at West Wingfield Park at 1st St and Arlington Ave. Runners should show up early, as we round everyone up for pre-race info and stretching at 9:40am.
If you haven’t registered, we will accept walk-up registrants from 7:30-8:30am.
What will it be like?
The race begins and ends at Wingfield Park. It heads west along the Truckee River and loops around Idlewild Park with one smaller loop at its furthest point and then heads back to Wingfield. The route is beautiful and marked with posters and cones. There will be street closures along Riverside and Idlewild for your safety.
Will There Be Snacks?
Yes there will! We’ll have:
- Fig Bars from Nature’s Bakery
- Water from Blue Dot Water
- Fruit from Sam’s Club
- Coffee from The Jungle
What can I win?
A sweet, sweet trophy customized with a hand-made replica of the life-sized capes you get with registration!
- 1st, 2nd & 3rd Place Male and Female
- Best Costume
- Best Team Costume (4 or more)
- Best Youth Costume (12 & Under)
- Best Dog Costume
Can I walk?
Absolutely!!! We just want people to come out and have a good time- don’t feel the need to run!
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 bring my kid?
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.
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! And remember to dress them up because we have a trophy for best dog costume!
Is this timed?
This is a fun run, not a chipped/timed event.
