Whether you are the type of runner who rolls out of bed and runs 20 miles or 20 minutes, the Rock the Creek Relay is for you!
It’s different. It’s fun. It’s a team event.
It’s local! The Rock the Creek Relay is held in beautiful Rock Creek Park and the start and finish at Lake Needwood Park are shaded and very quiet. Each of our six legs is beautiful and eminently doable. The legs are between a bit under 4 and about 6 miles. If you want a bigger challenge, run as an Ultra team and do two legs!
The Rock the Creek Relay is open to runners 16 or older on race day. Great music and food at the finish.
Above all, this is about fun and a TEAM event: Team name, Team t-shirts, Team instead of individual. And, that’s fun!
Last but not least, the Rock the Creek Relay is directed and operated by JR Running, the parent company of the American Odyssey Relay and Potomac Odyssey Relay – we’ll make sure it’s fun, safe and well-organized! We use all local vendors for shirts, swag, signs, etc. And when you email Rock the Creek Relay, you get an answer. From us. Not an automated response!
