EVENT DETAILS

We're excited to announce that the 4th annual MELTFEST 5K will be March 25, 2017 at 10:00am.  For 2017 we are partnering with the Rockford IceHogs to make this year's theme the "Hammy Hustle." The event will be chip timed and awards will be given to top overall and age group finishers.


As always, this unique family-friendly 5K event starts and finishes at the historic Prairie Street Brewhouse while taking runners and walkers through three different wards and multiple historic districts of downtown Rockford.  The course boasts beautiful views over the Morgan Street Bridge, past the new downtown Sports Factory, and NEW for 2017 THROUGH the BMO Harris Bank Center, next to the ice where the IceHogs play, all while viewing some of Rockford's best landmarks. So grab your family, friends, kids, and come on down and join us for the Hammy Hustle.

A portion of every entrance fee will be donated to the Rockford Cosmopolitan Club (the select charity for the 2017 event).  The club’s mission is supporting efforts to prevent and find a cure for diabetes, while also supporting the well-being of the local community through charitable donations and volunteer service.  In addition, all participants will receive a commemorative shirt plus a few other surprises.

After the race, stay for a day of festivities including market and food vendors, kid activities, live music, and a bunch of other fun surprises. Like us on Facebook to learn more about the event highlights as it draws nearer.

The event will be chip timed and awards will be given to top overall and age group finishers (male/female for Under 10, 11-12, 13-14, 15-16, 17-19, 20-24, 25-29, 30-24, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, 70+
