Do you remember your first bicycle?  A bike to a kid can mean healthy fun and a source of pride and independence.  We believer every kid should experience the joy of riding a bike...so, we intend to give away new bikes this Christmas to kids identified as being in financial need.  Please join us in November to help make this a reality for many of our youth!

EVENT DESCRIPTION:

Get ready for the inaugural 7 Hills Rubicon 5K presented by Floyd Co. Police Dept. to benefit the Santa Bike Patrol Program!!  There will also be a 1 Mile Walk/Fun Run for those who wish to walk and for the little ones.

The 5K will start & finish in historic Rome's Heritage Park, but don't let the '7 Hills' part scare you.  The course is actually very flat and fast.  (see full course description below.) The course runs along the Etowah and Coosa Rivers of downtown Rome utilizing both road and Rome's Kingfisher Trail system before returning to beautiful Downtown.

Please plan to hang around after the 5K/1M for age group awards presentations, while enjoying some food and music!   What a great way to start your weekend and support a worthy cause!
