Are you ready to “Run the Rock”? The Rocky Face Trail Race 5k and 10k events will kick off RockyFest 2014 on Saturday, May 24 at 8:30 a.m. at Rocky Face Mountain Recreational Area. The race course is very hilly, making it one of the most challenging trail races in the state. In fact, race coordinators believe the course is so challenging that the race registration fee will be refunded to anyone who finishes the 10k race in less than 60 minutes. Special awards will go to the top three (3) overall males and females in each race. All finishers will receive a custom medal. Awards will be presented as participants finish. There will be no age-group awards. To register, visit where you can download the registration form, course map, flyer, and additional information about the trail race and RockyFest.

Admission: Early entry fee for the 5k and 10k is $20 if postmarked by May 15. Registration will increase $10 for all race registrations after May 15, including race day.
