Friend to Friend proudly presents our first ever Rock N Run 5k - Hybrid Edition!

Whether you prefer to attend a live event or run virtually, we've got you covered. Because the future is uncertain, we are making sure that we have a way for everyone to be included in this event. 

You can register for the virtual option and run anywhere and any time starting on April 16th, and the week long event ends with the traditional in-person 5k on April 23rd!

The traditional 5k course will start at the Southern Pines Brewing Company (565 Air Tool Dr. Southern Pines), go up through the trails at the National Athletic Village, and end back at the starting point. 

The race culminates with beer, food trucks, and a (socially distanced) free concert at the finish line.

Don't forget your lawn chairs!
