Sign up for the 5K and compete as an individual or create a Mother/Daughter, Sister/Sister, or Grandmother/Granddaughter team. We also have a team event for groups of 5 or more!

Online Registration is $25 for Rockland Road Runner members, and $30 for non-members.  Team registrations are available for Mother/Daughter, Sister/Sister, or Grandmother/Granddaughter at $50 provided that at least one team member is a Rockland Road Runner.  If neither is a Rockland Road Runner, then the cost will be $60.  Teams of 5 runners/walkers are available for a discounted cost of $25 a team member provided that the team meets a minimum requirement of 5 members.  Running teams will be an awarded category like the others.

Online registration closes at 11:59pm Monday July 6th.  Registration can be done in person at Pre Race Packet Pick-up on July 10th from 12-8, but once online registration closes, in person registration is $40 a person no matter what you are registering for.
