Now in its sixth year, the Race Brook Rockin’ Road Race has become a staple in the Orange running community, surrounding communities and beyond! Sponsored by Race Brook School’s PTA, the Saturday, June 6 event includes a 5K run, two-mile fitness walk and Kids’ Fun Run.
The race begins and ends at Race Brook Elementary School on Grannis Road and is sure to be a morning of fun and activity for runners, walkers and families. All funds raised will be used to enhance both educational and fitness activities for students at Race Brook School.
Last year’s race was a huge success with over 300 participants. As a result, the RBS PTA raised over $8,000 with the help of many generous supporters. Race committee members are actively reaching out to valued members of the Orange community for sponsorships and donations. All funds raised will be used to enhance both educational and fitness activities for students at Race Brook School.
The race course is USATF certified and prizes will be awarded to the first male and female finisher in each age group. The Kids’ Fun Run will take place on the track behind the school, and all kids will receive a ribbon to acknowledge their participation.
All participants will be entered into the post-race raffle for some great prizes. In keeping with the ‘Rockin’ theme, the event will also feature music at the finish line and along the race course.
