2022 Rockbridge Indoor 5K's and Challenges
Rockbridge Race Series are designed to be fun, welcoming races to help stay healthy through the Winter and help get you ready for Spring/Summer/Fall races. The track is world class, has banked turns and a plywood, cushioned surface under the rubber! We are excited to make 2022 challenging and to provide a race/challenge each week in addition to coaching and form running. Each evening will be scored objectively if possible, or subjectively if needed. We will award a Race Series Champion at the year end party!
