The Rockin' Rockwoods 53k and 1/2 Marathon are simultaneous trail races that will be held across the scenic Green Rock Trail. The terrain ranges from hard pack dirt to loose uneven rock and extremely hilly, technical trails.
This is a challenging course of steep grades and rolling terrain. Runners will be treated to 95% single track with rocks, roots and creek crossings that make for a fairly technical out and back run.
The Rockin' Rockwoods 53K course is a combination of two out and back sections with an elevation gain of 5200ft and 1/2 Marathon is out and back with an elevation gain of 2200ft.
PLEASE NOTE THIS IS A TRAIL 1/2 MARATHON AND NOT YOUR ROAD 13.1 SO YOU WILL BE RUNNING 13.1-ISH MILES. No Wimps, No Whining!

This Is a Cup-Free Event
PLEASE NOTE: ROCKIN' ROCKWOODS IS A CUP-FREE, which means there won't be any paper cups at aid stations, and there won't be any paper or plastic cups at our finish-lines. We won't be making any exceptions to this rule, so if you don't bring your own drinking receptacle come race-weekend, you'll want to pre-purchase a collapsible cup and if you don't already have a reusable soft flask to carry with you on the course (for soda & electrolyte drink, etc.), we will have the collapsible cups for purchase when you check in for the race and/or at packet pickup for $5 CASH Only (quantities limited at check-in).
Please help us keep our races eco-friendly, minimize the trash in the landfills and our trails clean.
Together we can make a difference!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

FINISH-LINE BRACELETS (for non-runners & non-volunteers): Anyone eating or drinking needs to have a finish-line bracelet on the day they're otherwise running/volunteering. We will have finish-line bracelets for sale at the merch table on race-day ($8 - CASH ONLY) if you didn't already pre-purchase them via UltraSignup. If you aren't a registered runner or volunteer, pre-purchasing a bracelet online helps us better plan when we're purchasing items for the finish-line food and beer, which is also why it's a little more expensive if you wait until race day. $8 isn't very much for food and beer, but it helps cover our extra food and drink costs for spectators, and in turn helps us keep race costs down. It also helps ensure that we have food and drinks available for the last finishers and last volunteers back to the finish line.
