Event: Roots & Ruts Off-Road 5K
To decrease congestion at the start line and throughout the racecourse, staggered start times, or “waves” based on average mile time will be implemented. Within each wave grouping, 5 participants will start every 20 seconds. Net timing will be recorded for each participant.

The Roots & Ruts Off-Road 5K features a course through the natural woodlands of the North Jupiter Flatwoods. We recommend participants be cautious and aware at all times during the race. Please be mindful that there are multiple ground surfaces throughout the race, such as pavement, gravel, sand, and grass. Strollers and pets are not allowed in the race.

The first 200 registrants will be given the choice of a t-shirt or hat during check-out.

Participants 14 and under are given a $10 discount, which will be applied at check-out.
