Run for the River 5K

Friday, August 13th - 7 PM

The Run for the River 5K is a unique race to benefit BRWF. The course winds through two city parks along the beautiful Bitterroot River. Come out for this one of a kind experience in the Bitterroot Valley!


5K starts and finishes at Kiwanis River Park in Hamilton

Registration of $40 will include a Bitter Root Water Forum Hydro Flask (while supplies last).


Children 10 and under are encouraged to participate in the Splish Splash Dash at 6:45 pm. No pre-registration is necessary for the dash.


Saturday, August 14th

You are welcome to begin and end your clean-up effort at any point on the 14th.

We encourage you to drop your trash between 5-8pm at Hamilton’s Kiwanis River Park and stay for a community celebration with live music from Pinegrass and local food trucks!

Fun prizes will be awarded at 7:30pm!

Each year, volunteers for BRWF pull thousands of pounds of trash out of the Bitterroot River. Volunteers claim stretches of the river covering all 155 miles, from Sula and Painted Rocks to the confluence at the Clark Fork in Missoula.  

Clean-up bags and gloves will be available at all Valley Fly Shops and at the Water Forum office at 178 S. 2nd St in Hamilton during the two weeks leading up to the event. Please feel free to use your own supplies as well.

Help Bitterroot River Clean Up and Run for the River 5K run smoothly, all in the name of clean, abundant water!

A variety of tasks and times are available to pick from on Friday and Saturday.

Contact Ellie for more information at or (406) 375-2272.
