WHAT IS ROCK ‘N RUN?
This run event is unlike any other! Rock ‘n Run is 0.5K race (yes you read that right), and family-friendly festival all tied into one, and for a great cause.
It’s the run for everyone and we want runners of all ages and abilities to participate. Sprint to the finish line or take a more leisurely pace. And young children are welcome to zoom through the course on their tricycles or training wheel bikes. (Please, no two-wheel bikes!)
Rock ‘n Run isn’t just for “runners,” it’s for spectators, too! Bring your family and friends to cheer you on while you make your way around the course (all 1640 feet of it!). There’s no charge for them to attend, and after you cross that finish line you all can relax, listen to the band, enjoy the food trucks, and more!
WHO CAN PARTICIPATE IN THE RUN?
Anyone. Seriously, ANYONE! This event couldn’t align any better with our mission of empowering individuals of ALL abilities to live their fullest life if we tried.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
Registration is $25 per adult, $15 per child (10 and under). Registration includes a water bottle (gotta stay hydrated out there), a sweet car magnet (metal bumper not included) and a one-of-a-kind medal.
WHAT SUPPORT WILL BE AVAILABLE?
- Two rest stops with water/Gatorade and snacks to help boost your energy!
- Lots of cheering
- The band, Thursday’s Flight, to help you get into your flow
- Glowsticks. Lots of glowsticks so that you don’t get lost as you make your way along the route
WHY CREATE A TEAM?
Because teamwork makes the dreamwork! While your collective run times won’t be tallied we will be tallying the money you raise through everydayhero. The team that raises the most money will take home the Inaugural Rock ‘n Run Best Team trophy. There is no additional cost to create a team.
HOW CAN I WIN?
Everyone wins at this event folks! But for the uber-competitive type – we’ll also be awarding a trophy to the individual that raises the most money through everydayhero (more on that below). There are also prizes for individuals who meet certain fundraising goals. Fundraising prizes include:
$100 – TBD
$500 – coming soon: something great
$1,000 – we’ll let you know but it’ll be better than the $500 level!
WHAT TIME ARE THE FESTIVITIES?
The band will start at 6:30pm. The festivities will end at 8:30pm. Food trucks (Snowie of the Carolinas and Trolley Stop Hot Dogs) will be available throughout the event. The first runners will take off from the start line at 7pm. Check back for more details.
WHAT WILL BE AVAILABLE FOR KIDS TO DO?
The Kids Fun Run will be part of Heat #1 taking off at 7pm. Kids can also play on the playground located adjacent to the route. Parental supervision is required for all children’s activities.
It’s how you can raise money for TLC! Everydayhero is a peer-to-peer tool for you to fundraise on behalf of Tammy Lynn Center and your participation in this event (fun huh!?).
