The Event

The San Diego River Run features a family and dog-friendly 5K run and walk, team competition, and post-race refreshments. The 2019 event will take place on the section of the San Diego River Trail that is managed by Lakeside’s River Park Conservancy. This year we anticipate upwards of 600 participants and 100 volunteers. The 5K course showcases the diversity of the trails along the San Diego River and also highlights projects that the River Park is embarking upon.


The Cause

We hope to raise $25,000 at this event to help get one step closer to the overall goal of being part of the 52-mile San Diego River Trail that will extend from the mountains of Julian to the sea at Ocean Beach. The Lakeside’s River Park Conservancy is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization whose mission is to preserve and restore the biological integrity and beauty of the San Diego River while integrating recreational, educational and cultural opportunities for youth, seniors, families and citizens of East San Diego County.


We Need Your Support!

It’s the generous support of local businesses such as yours that allows for our event’s success. There are three ways to join in on the fun:


Become an Event Sponsor:

Event sponsorship opportunities range from $100 to $5,000. Your contribution will help restore the river and show the community that your company cares! In addition to cash sponsorship, we also greatly appreciate in-kind donations. We need prizes for our raffle, division winners and in-kind products such as water, cups, refreshments (bananas, oranges, energy bars), goodie bags (re-useable tote bags), water bottles, massage therapists and more! All levels of Event Sponsorships will include a booth space for the duration of the event. All sponsors who wish to use their space will need to supply or rent a white or logo canopy (size dependent upon level of sponsorship).


Can’t attend on race day? You can choose the goodie bag insert (flyer/sample inserted in 500+ bags).


Create a Corporate Team:

In the spirit of friendly competition, awards will be presented to the largest corporate, school, community and police & fire teams. If you have 25 or more registered team members, you’ll be provided a complimentary team tent to use as your meeting location at the event. The tent will have special goodies like coffee/drinks/energy bars and more.
