Mount Saint Mary's 5K River Run and Cardio Craze Walk

Lewiston, NY

Mount St. Mary’s is pleased to announce the merging of two great events into one! The 15th Annual River Run 5K and 5th Annual Cardio Craze Wellness Walk will collectively take place on Saturday June 18, 2016.  Both events are family friendly and the Cardio Craze Walk is dog friendly!

River Run 5K

This great event is now race #3 of the DiMino Lower Niagara Running Series. The River Run was established back in 2002, and proceeds from the run go to the Mount St. Mary’s Center of Sports Medicine and Physical Rehabilitation department. The funds will help to purchase equipment to better serve our patients and the community at large.

Cardio Craze Wellness Walk

This is a fun event for you and man’s best friend! The Cardio Craze Wellness Walk was established in 2012 to benefit the Mount St. Mary’s Cardiology department. Walkers are encouraged to bring their dog to participate in the walk and “informal dog show.” Your “best friend” has the opportunity to win prizes while you enjoy music and refreshments.

 *Dogs must be leashed and kept under control of the owner at all times for the safety of others.


The River Run 5K and Cardio Craze Wellness Walk start and finish at the Red Brick School in Lewiston. The 5K course offers flat terrain with scenic views of the Lower Niagara River and area neighborhoods.  The wellness walk takes you through the Village of Lewiston. Walkers will proceed east along the north side of Center Street, cross at Portage Road, and return on the south side of Center Street.
