Race Description

Race to the Rock is Jevaia Foundation's primary fundraising event of the year (www.jevaia.org). Our 2.4 mile fun-run is short but hilly, making it a great time for hard core runners and relaxers alike. Costumes, accessories, and all modes of non-motorized transportation (bikes, skateboards, scooters, and strollers for little ones) are welcome. Just want to hang out without running, or have kids of different ages? That's why we have the Wall of Creativity, awesome henna painting, a silent auction full of cool stuff from local vendors, and delicious food. Come join us whether you're running, walking, rolling, crawling, or cheering for others. 

Adult Run: 2.4 Miles
Youth Run (Ages 12 and Under): .6 Miles

Contests:

Prizes will be awarded for creative costumes and for racing with an item that would have been useful on the Mayflower, and of course, to the fastest runners.

Event Schedule: 
8am – Registration and Opening of Silent Auction 
8:30 – Check-in for pre-registered runners
9:00 – Race Kick Off
9:45-10:15 – Silent Auction, Refreshments & Award Ceremony 
10:30 – Closing Ceremony & Raffle Drawing

Kids, We Need You! 
A Race to the Rock tradition: Kids of all ages are invited to a pre-race Pizza Party in Greenwich Forest Sunday prior to the event to create signs honoring local businesses that are sponsoring this event. To help out, contact Laura@jevaia.org. 

Out of Town?
We'd be so grateful for your support during our annual campaign. Tax-deductible contributions can be made at www.jevaia.org.

We have participated in Race to the Rock ever since its inception. We love starting out our Thanksgiving holiday this way, supporting important work in Nepal through Jevaia.

A Thanksgiving Day Tradition

I have participated in this race the last 5 years on Thanksgiving morning. This has become part of my Thanksgiving day tradition and I look forward to it each year. The event is well organized and thoughtfully designed.

Best Way to Start T-Day

Every year our family kicks off Thanksgiving Day with Race to the Rock--some as runners, some as shoppers, all as bagel eaters. It's a fun and low-key yet meaningful way to celebrate our community here in Bethesda and give to another one over in Nepal.
