'''Celduin''' or '''River Running''' was a 600–[[Númenórean]] miles long [[Rivers|river]] that ran from the [[Lonely Mountain]] south through the [[Long Lake]] where it was joined by the [[Forest River]] and thence through the easern outskirts of [[Mirkwood]], then south east through apparently uninhabited regions of [[Rhovanion]] to its confluence with the [[Carnen]] and finally in a long south-eastward loop to the great inland [[Sea of Rhûn]], past the land of [[Dorwinion]].

It is not exactly clear what the name of the river is past the point where Celduin and Carnen meet, but the map suggests that Carnen becomes the name of the combined river. Although the area was not mapped by Tolkien the Carnen must have flowed past many villages of [[Men]], as the Men of [[Dale]] and [[Esgaroth]] traded with someone in the region.
