Republican River Fitness Series


The Republican River Fitness Series (RRFS) has been developed because we have a passion for wellness, for participation, for developing a healthy and active lifestyle for ourselves and more importantly for our community. The series is a collaboration between the YMCA and Community Hospital, along with financial support from McCook National Bank, Brown’s Shoe Fit and Acme Printing. The RRFS would like to be a significant asset to the communities it covers, showcasing the area’s natural assets through races. 

We feel this can be done through locally-produced, locally-held events, from 5K run/walks to adventure runs. Ultimately, the series will promote wellness and participation from people in all stages of life and all stages of fitness.

Our goal is to encourage local participation, local sponsorship, use of local businesses, and produces proceeds that benefit local charities and organizations. To qualify for the end-of-the-year banquet, participants must enter at least 9 of the 12 events or earn points at each race for their age division and for participation.

Race results as well as registration for all races may be completed at the RRFS website,
