Race to the Rock Race Description

Race to the Rock is a short but hilly 2.4 mile fun-run for both serious runners and family enjoyment.  This year's race is generously sponsored by Cheval Bethesda along with other local businesses, and proceeds support benefit Jevaia Foundation (www.jevaia.org). Race winners will land gift certificates from local business, and non-racers can spice things up with costumes, accessories, and all modes of non-motorized transportation (bikes, skateboards, scooters, and strollers for little ones). Just want to hang out without running, or have kids of different ages? That's why we have the Wall of Creativity, henna painting, a silent auction full of cool stuff from local vendors, and delicious food. Enjoy Thanksgiving morning outside with neighbors whether you're running, walking, rolling, crawling, or cheering for others. 

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

*IMPORTANT*...Contests with *PRIZES!!*:

1) Racing in the most creative costume

2) Racing with an item that would have been useful on the Mayflower,

3) And course, to the fastest runners win prizes too...

8:30 – Check-in for pre-registered runners
9:00 – Race Kick Off
9:45-10:15 – Silent Auction, Refreshments & Award Ceremony

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.

Neighbor

This is a wonderful way to begin Thanksgiving Day....you can walk, jog, run, eat bagels and other delicious food, and shop at the silent auction. It's great fun for all ages, and the spirit of community and the holiday. And benefits a terrific, non-profit doing important health work in rural Nepal!
