About This Activity

The 2nd Annual Boots2Books 5K brings back a challenging 5K course and a new "Tough Run" to challenge you and your closest friends. This year we will be holding a night time "glow run" so come out in costume, dress up with glow in the dark accesories and come ready to have a good time!

The Tough Run is a team only event and will challenge you and your friends with a serious uphill run, and multiple obstacles inspired by the various branches of military service. This course will require you to challenge yourself in many ways and is not for the weak of heart or body. This course is only open to those who are 18 or older.

Food is being donated by Mission BBQ and the first 300 runners to register are guaranteed a free meal, so make sure you register soon to take advantage of the free food, early bird pricing and the guaranteed race shirt and sign up before April 10th!

Race Features:


  • Age Brackets
  • Best Costume Award
  • Live DJ
  • Timing by Run Roanoke
