Run on the River 2021

We hear you. You are ready to run and ready to run an in-person event. You can’t wait to get to Astoria to enjoy the Riverwalk, Buoy Beer Co and the Columbia River. WE WANT THAT TOO! 

The Virtual race last year was a surprise success and brought us great joy! 


Our delight is seeing our runners and volunteers gather in the morning; feeling that energy that comes with the expectation and the completion of the race; and sharing a Buoy beverage and lunch with you and your family and friends. That is what we look forward to. That is why we do it. 

And of course, to raise funds for scholarships for Astoria’s wellness programs. 

So, with that and because your health and wellness is extremely important to us, the ROTR team has made the very difficult decision to cancel this year’s Run on the River.

We thank each of you for your dedication to our run and our cause. We thank Buoy Beer Co. for their generous support! And we look forward to seeing everyone again in person in 2022.

We have already been in touch with those of you who are registered and we’ll be opening the 2022 registration later this year. We’ll be sending out a link once that is open. 

We can't wait to see you next year!

Run on the River is a yearly fundraiser hosted by the Astoria Parks, Recreation and Community Foundation, sponsored by Buoy Beer Company and supported by local businesses. APRCF is a 501(c)3 committed to providing local individuals and families access to recreation and wellness opportunities.
