Love on the Rocks 5K & 10K Team Challenge has been scheduled for Saturday, February 11, 2017!!

♥The 4th Annual Love on the Rocks 5K & 10K Team Challenge is set for Saturday, February 11, 2017 at 8 a.m. Grab a friend, grab a loved one, grab a neighbor and come run North Rim Trail with us! The Love on the Rocks will begin and end at 5 Mile Recreation Area off Centennial Avenue. We will utilize Wildwood Trail, Middle Trail, North Rim Trail and Blue Oak Trail. The run is tough and we think everyone will do better with a partner! (Don’t we always do better when we are supported by someone we love???)  We will use the combined times of the couple for the awards ceremony. It is not mandatory that teams hold hands as they cross the finish line….but it is STRONGLY encouraged and may even be rewarded!♥

What is a team?

For this run a team is defined as:

♥A couple of friends
♥A couple of family members
♥A couple of runner partners
♥A couple of lovers
♥A couple of sweethearts
♥A couple in love
♥A couple out of love
♥A couple trying to rekindle love
♥A couple of gals
♥A couple of guys
♥A couple of brothers
♥A couple of sisters
Get the point? Any couple/team combo is fine! ♥♥♥♥♥♥

♥♥We will also offer a category for individual runners: Flying Solo (and proud of it!)

Have you been thinking about asking that special someone to be a forever special someone?

We will have a non-denominational minister present to marry couples or renew vows! Love on the Rocks is the event to do it! Invite friends and family members to be part of your special day! Send us an email before the event to get one of the first time slots! Be sure to provide us with both names, new marriage or renewal of vows and anything special we should know!  We will even have veils available to borrow (or you can bring your own!)♥

Course Description

5K: The LOTR course begins at 5-Mile Recreation Area near the levee. Runners will run out the levee toward Wildwood Rd. Runners will turn right onto the pedestrian bridge and continue onto the Wildwood Trail (the trail parallel and closest to Wildwood Rd.) When the runners hit Parking Lot A they will cross Upper Park Rd. and continue onto Middle Trail toward the Easter Cross. 5K runners will continue up North Rim Trail and come down Blue Oak Trail and connect to Middle Trail. They will cross Upper Park Rd. at 5 Mile Way and finish the run by crossing the bridge at 5 Mile. (For reference…this is exactly how we finish the Frost or Fog course.)
10K: The 10K course is exactly the same as the 5K course except when 5K runners turn at Blue Oak Trail, 10K runners will continue up North Rim Trail for another 1.5 miles. They will turnaround (we will have signage) and continue down North Rim Trail and turn left onto Blue Oak Trail, cross Upper Park Rd. and continue on 5 Mile Way to the bridge back to 5 Mile Recreation Area.

Chip Timing

Under the Sun Events will be providing chip timing!  There will be a small white foam strip on the back of your race bib.  Please do not remove it, fold it or squish it; below it is the actual timing chip.  Please wear your bib on the front of your shirt at waist height and be sure it is visible as you cross the start and finish lines.  Most importantly, don’t forget your bib!  No bib, no time!

Awards

Awards will be presented in the following team categories:

♥Family Team
♥Friends – Male Team
♥Friends – Female Team
♥Friends – Co-ed Team
♥Lovers Team – 18 and over
♥Sweetheart Team – Under 18
♥Flying Solo (and proud of it!)

    Hi! Excited about this run! Is it possible for one person in the couple to do the 5k and one person the 10k?

  3. Christina June 1, 2014 at 7:00 am #

    Are (fast) walkers allowed on the 5K?

    • admin June 13, 2014 at 10:49 am #

      Hi Christina,
      I apologize for the delay in getting back to you! Yes, walkers are always welcome at any of our events. We hope to see you there!

        Thank you so much for getting back to me on this. I will remember this info from now on and look forward to all the races you help organize as I have always found them professional, well supported and organized and most especially fun to participate with!!!

  4. Courtney Nelson June 23, 2014 at 12:45 pm #

    Looks like fun – is there a map of the 5k trail? Thanks!

    • admin August 4, 2014 at 11:45 am #

      Hi, Courtney. Sorry for just responding to this now….for some reason we didn’t see it. We do not have a map of the 5K route at this time…I will try to post one by the end of the week. It is the same as the 10K but runners turn down the Blue Oak Trail (above Horseshoe Lake). Does that make sense? Thanks! Nikki

    Signed up a team, but it didn’t charge me – balance was 0. Just checking that my team is registered for the 10K – adult and child under 14. Thanks

    • admin August 29, 2014 at 2:14 pm #

      Thanks for calling me back Norelia! Glad we got it figured out! See you next weekend!
