Every Fifth Third River Bank Run registration has a story behind it.

And we want to know yours!

Each year the Fifth Third River Bank Run reaches out to those who have registered for the Race and ask for their story on “Why they run?.”  We hear some amazing stories that we like to share to inspire other who are thinking about running or need words of encouragement to continue to stay focused on their health.  If you are planning on running this year in the 40th Fifth Third River Bank Run, please tell us your story so we can share your experience. Email us today!
