About This Activity

This is the fourth year for the "Race To The Rock". This race is hosted by the Flat Rock Middle School Cross Country Team. The course is totally ran on asphalt in an out and back fashion. The 5K course is 85% Flat with the remainder a gentle grade. The 10K course follows the same course as the 5K to the 1.5 mile mark. As you ascend to the top of the mountain you will feel the burn in your legs to the top which will be  the 2 mile mark, then descend the backside of the mountain for a break to the 3.1 turnaround, then back up the mountain for another calf burner then a two mile down hill to the finish. If you want a 10k that is challenging come run the mountain twice on a fall morning.
