This will be the 13th annual race. Last year's event raised $900 for charitable organizations.

The Biology Club has sponsored a variety of activities to benefit environmental groups, and has been participating in a highway clean-up project for the last several years. The Club encourages the study of biological sciences through lectures, field trips, and other scholarly pursuits. Students work to contribute to the growth of the institution and the community at large.

The race is open to the public and will take place rain or shine. Registration fee for both runners and walkers is $20. The first 50 race participants to register will receive an environmentally friendly gift. To register in advance, download a registration form for runners and walkers at the top of this page. For more information, contact Dr. Susan Barbaro at (603) 897-8261 or biology@rivier.edu.

For representatives from organizations setting up tables for the environmental fair, please have your table set up by 9 a.m. when registration opens. Runners and walkers can begin to check in at the registration table at 9 a.m. and the race will begin at 10 a.m.
