Description

On the beautiful out-and-back course at Renfro Valley, you’ll have 30 minutes to cover as much ground as possible. In this experimental event, we want to know: How far can you go and still get back in time? You’ll want to bring a stopwatch for this one. Overall and age group awards given for distance, not time.

 

Proceeds benefit the Alzheimer’s Association whose mission is to eliminate Alzheimer’s disease through the advancement of research, to provide and enhance care and support for all affected, and to reduce the risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health.

In addition, you may honor or remember your loved ones with a personalized Forget-Me-Not poster to be displayed during the Rockcastle Run/Walk for Alzheimer’s. Posters are available for a $5 donation for race participants; or $10 for non-participants. For more information, contact Jana Bray at j.bray@rhrcc.org or 606-256-7880.
