|Region:||Eryn Lasgalen and the Dale-lands|
The River Running or Celduin is a river that flows out of Erebor in Eryn Lasgalen and the Dale-lands. [28.9N, 25.9W]
Cascading down from the Front Gate of Erebor, some of the river's water is diverted to form the canal of Dale, [27.2N, 25.0W] which flows back into the river at the south end of the city. [23.8N, 25.3W] The river bends south-west around Dale and through the Dale-lands, then turns sharply south-east just south of the ruins of Bendburn. [22.1N, 27.8W] From there it flows before a great rocky height and over another waterfall into the Long Lake. [20.4N, 25.9W]
The River Running continues at the south end of the lake, spilling over a greater waterfall and on to the Fields of Celduin. [10.0N, 26.4W] There, it turns east away from Eryn Lasgalen, towards the Sea of Rhûn. Along the way, it merges with the river Carnen, the Redwater, which flows south from the Iron Hills.
The River Running originates within Erebor and flows through the Hall Under the Mountain
The Celduin flows into and past Dale.
The river winds through the Dale-lands...
... and empties into the Long Lake.
The River Running spills out of the Long Lake in the south, whence it continues to the Fields of Celduin and on to the Sea of Rhûn.
