Riverfest’s River Run begins Early Bird registration


WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) – Wichita’s 46th annual Riverfest River Run, which is scheduled to happen on June 4, 2022, has begun Early Bird registration, where prices are discounted by $10.

This is Wichita’s 50th Riverfest. The last two years have been difficult for Riverfest due to the COVID-19 crisis. In 2020, they had to cancel Riverfest for the first time, and in 2021, the festival was split into two timeframes to separate their events. This year it will run within one timeframe from June 3-11, 2022.

Registration prices for the River Run are different depending on the race and include an additional sign-up fee. Prices will increase by $10 on Feb. 28 at 11:59 p.m. for three of the races. Online registration for all events will end on May 30 at 11:59 p.m.

The River Run consists of five different races:
