The 2016 Rocky’s 5k is Saturday Oct 29th at 9am. This year we got rid of the big hill. Haha Just Kidding! Same course. What would a run at Rocky’s be without some hills?
Registration is available here: – https://register.chronotrack.com/r/22082
Bib pickup is at the Westchester Road Runner, 179 East Post Road, White Plains NY, on thursday and Friday the 27th 11am to 9pm, and 28th from 10am to 7pm. You get 20% off in the store just by showing them your bib that day! Also, Westchester Road Runner is collecting donations of food for the Food Bank for Westchester. Please feel free to help a neighbor in need by bringing something to the store. If you can’t pickup at the store, we’ll have a place to drop off items at the race on race morning. (You can pick your bib up then too, of course). Here is a list of most needed items: http://www.foodbankforwestchester.org/help-us/most-needed-food-items-2016.pdf
Age group awards, team awards, refreshments, t-shirts, what more could you ask for. Some people even tailgate in the parking lot after. Speaking of parking lot, please carpool as much as possible, and please be kind to our parking volunteers. They are there to help! Parking is tight, hence the race cap. The Registration area, awards area, refreshments and parking are all located at the main entrance of the Preserve on Rt. 117, the address is 125 Phelps Way. When you google this address it tells you it is in Pleasantville because, well, technically it is. However, it is nowhere near the town of Pleasantville. If you are in the town of Pleasantville you might get a good cup of coffee, but you won’t be near the race! The Preserve entrance is in between Rt 9 and the Taconic. Once you park, you’ll follow the crowds down to the start/finish area.
There is no charge to enter the lot if you are in the race. Volunteers will give you a pass to display in your car. Another reason to get there early!
Team competition: pretty simple. Lowest total time wins, and so forth 3 deep in the 4 team categories. Teams of two in all male, all female, coed and coed century (both people must have a total age of 100 or more).
Awards 3 deep in 5 year age categories, starting with 15 and under, then 16-19, 20-24, etc. Male/Female, of course.
