2015 RIVERFEST Water Droplet Kid’s Run

Unfortunately, the 5K has been Cancelled!


Due to flooding, the 5K route is underwater, and we have had to cancel the event. We ARE STILL HAVING the Kid’s Run at 9am. And we are still handing out T-shirts to those who have registered for the 5K.

Come celebrate the summer with the 3rd annual Water Droplet Kid’s Run benefiting the Wabash River Enhancement Corporation. This event is part of Wabash Riverfest. The kid’s run will begin at the ice rink at Tapawingo Park in West Lafayette, IN. Come out for the run and stay for all the Wabash Riverfest activities following the event, including many family friendly events.

Due to bridge construction, the route for the kid’s run has changed from previous years: The Kid’s Run will wind throughout Riverfest and Tapawingo Park, starting at the ice rink.
