Description

It’s not easy to admit defeat.

It’s even harder when a great idea just doesn’t take off.

We are sorry, but with just over 25 current entrants runBUCKs has come to the painful decision to cancel the 2019 RockRun5K.

Last year’s registration was pretty low and we’re currently at 33% of those levels. I don't understand why this event hasn't taken off.

We can’t cover the CRSD facility use fees alone, not to mention the other expenses.

We'd appreciate if you'd pass the word along to your friends and family who were considering running but had not yet registered.

We hope this doesn’t ruin your holiday weekend plans and we do look forward to you running with us soon.

PARKING:
This is a point-to-point course. We would love for you to arrange group parking so that someone in your party parks at CRNorth and someone else drives to the start at CRS. If that is not a possibility we would prefer that you park at Council Rock Southh High School on race morning. We will offer shuttles back to the start at Council Rock South. Baggage will be portageded to Council Rock North 10 minutes before the start of the race, to be picked up after you cross the finish line. There is no return bussing service for spectators. Please consider carpooling to alleviate parking congestion, as there is an Athletes Helping Athletes football game at Council Rock North immediately after the ROCK RUN awards presentations
