About This Activity

The 4th annual Rock The Run is now on tour! 2015 Rock The Run takes place on a scenic, out and back course during the peak of autumn in beautiful Simsbury, Connecticut. It begins with live music providing motivational jams at the Pacific Arts Center stage in Simsbury Meadows. Get a PR on the course as it is a very fast and flat out and back course. Starting on the grass in Simsbury Meadows, participants head out to the beautiful Farmington Valley Greenway (or rails to trails) with the Farmington river peaking through the fall foliage. Participants turn around just before Tariffville Road and head back to the start where you will be welcomed across the finish line with live music. The event also includes participant food, a dri fit tech tshirt, chip timing, age group awards and post-race festival and a free entry into the raffle. Most importantly you are helping to fund kids cancer research! Shred Kids' Cancer is a 501c3 organization and all doantions are tax deductible.
