We're rolling out a new Refer a Friend program because it's just so much more fun to run with a friend!

When you register for the Polar Bear Grand Prix you will receive a code in your confirmation for the Reindeer Romp (you get a confirmation for each race in the Grand Prix) that you can share with your favorite running buddies so everyone gets rewarded. You will receive $5.00 back for every friend that registers with your code and your friend will get $5.00 of their registration. (Cannot exceed the cost of the category fee paid and amount will be refunded following the Reindeer Romp)

Refer three friends, get $15.00 back. Refer 16 friends and you get your entire $80 registration fee back!

Already registered? Keep an eye on your email, we'll be sending you a code to share with your friends too!

The refer a friend program ends October 31, 2019 so see how big your can get your refund!

River City Races has been a fixture on the Louisville running circuit since 2003, and has a dedicated following in the running community. We are known throughout Louisville for our fun, family friendly and professionally managed events. We are proud to say that our family not only includes our staff but our repeat runners as well. We love seeing lots of familiar faces at all of our events! 

In 2003 Camille Estes, a local runner and entrepreneur, saw a need in the running community: to make running more accessible for people of all fitness levels to build a more inclusive community. River City Races welcomes participants of all abilities. Our goal for each event is fun, fitness is just a side effect!

River City Races is locally owned and family operated by Mother/Daughter duo, Camille and Lyndsey Estes.
