About This Activity

This is the third year for the "Race To The Rock". This race is organized 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. The difference is you will ascend to the top of the mountain which will be  the 2 mile mark, then descend the backside of the mountain to the 3.1 turnaround. Good news is 10K is half over, better news is you get to climb the mountain again. You will see some beautiful mountain range views on this out and back run enjoying a fall morning run. Both races start at 10 A.M.

5K and 10K will start together at 10 A.M.
