The annual Beat the Raven Race happens on Saturday, June 17 at 9:00 a.m. Anybody can participate in the 5K event and race with students from the cross country team. The day of the race registration fee for all ages is $30.

“[The Beat the Raven Race] is a fundraiser to help pay for cross country travel or invitationals in the fall,” head boys coach Bill Sumner said. “[We] usually raise about $2,000.”

Information on the race details can be found on Riverside’s home page online. The registration form is connected to a link on the website too.

The race is split into age divisions, with the top 10 in each division getting a ribbon for the fastest times.

“[It’s] a fun run. It’s for walkers, joggers, and a race for everybody,” Sumner said. “Anyone can be a part of it.”

Participation in the event comes in many different forms, even for students on the cross country team.

“I don’t run [the race],” sophomore Kayna Kliewer said. “I ran it freshman year. Last year I got together with other girls from the cross country team and cheered on the people from the sidelines.”

The race is one of the cross country team’s biggest fundraisers for the season. The benefits go to both the girls’ and the boys’ cross country teams.

“[Everyone] should definitely participate,” Kliewer said. “Anyone who goes generally has a good time.”

There will be prize drawings, T-shirts, course photography, and a post-race celebration with food and drinks, according to the Beat the Raven race registration form.
