4th Annual ROCovery Fitness Family Fun 5k and X-Challenge

September 8, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm

Get ready for the 2018 ROCovery Fitness 5K!

More than 500 people came out in 2017 to walk/run their choice of a 5K paved course or a 5K trail run, and this year we’re adding a little something X-tra… the ROCovery X Challenge! The ROCovery X-Challenge will happen on the trail course. Anyone up for the challenge will complete push-ups, air squats and burpees AT EACH MILE (push-ups at mile one, air squats at mile two, and burpees at mile three), with the total number being determined by the amount of money raised. Our fundraising goal is $50,000, so this is a serious challenge. Are you up for it?!

There are no additional fees for the ROCovery X Challenge, but you’ll get some bonus ROCovery swag for completing it. This year’s race will be chip timed, with prizes going to top male and female finishers of the road course, the trail course, and the ROCovery-X Challenge.

The ROCovery Fitness 5K celebrates the hope we find in recovery, and remembers loved ones who have been lost to the disease of addiction. Whether you are running for yourself, for someone you love, or for someone you’ve lost, we hope you will come out and Run for Recovery with ROCovery Fitness!

Special pricing is available for kids under 12 years old ($10) who want to participate in the race and get their own race t-shirt. As in years past, we will have special events and activities for kids in addition to the 5k race courses, and kids of all ages are welcome to attend and participate in all activities at no charge.

Through fitness and community, ROCovery helps people rebuild lives, regain strength, and reignite passion for life. Each year, more than 1,000 people find hope in recovery with ROCovery Fitness—and we couldn’t do it without your support.

ROCovery Fitness is funded entirely through private donations. Our annual 5K is our biggest fundraiser of the year and the area’s largest event for recovery from addiction. Your participation helps raise awareness, and helps raise much needed funds for ROCovery Fitness. Register early and bring your friends and family. Sponsorship opportunities are available. We hope to see you there!
