THE 5K RACE
The 5k race starts and finishes at The Rocky Mount Mills and takes runners on a scenic and historic view of Rocky Mount. In2021 we will have a new course. To accommodate for aCOVID-19 safe staggered start we modified our course as we are unable to shut down all lanes of Falls Road for more than five minutes. The 2021 course will take participants around the Rocky Mount Mills campus, through River & Twine's tiny home hotel complex, into Battle Park, and back along the Tar River.
For the final stretch runners turn on Elm Street where they sprint to the finish back at the Rocky Mount Mills where they will celebrate with cold beer, food trucks, and live music from pop star Sicily!
Age group awards for men and women will be give three deep for each category below. Awards will be unique. In 2016 we did the bottle openers pictured.
