Course Description: Suds & Soles is a USATF certified 5K course beginning and ending in Rockville Town Center. The course will run through downtown Rockville and through neighborhood roads before returning to Town Center. Participants who maintain a pace that is greater than 20 minutes per mile may be directed to the sidewalk and from that point on will be required to follow normal pedestrian rules.

Timing and Scoring: The 5K race will be scored with the IPICO Bib Chip which will be attached to the bib you receive at packet pick up registration. Results will be posted on this webpage and www.mcrrc.org approximately 24 hours after the race. Both “net” and “gun” times will be displayed.

Awards: If you think you might win an award, please stick around. Awards WILL NOT be mailed! Awards to the top male and female finishers in both open and masters divisions as well as age group prizes!

Kids Runs: MCRRC is excited to bring back youth events in 2022. Please know that our youth races & events will follow COVID protocols as required by state and local health authorities at the time of the event, but will otherwise look much like “regular kids’ runs.” This means you can generally expect groups of kids bunched up, laughing, cheering, maybe a couple trips and falls, probably some parents jockeying for good camera angles, and maybe a treat at the end. With COVID still circulating in the community, we understand not everyone will be comfortable in this environment but hope to see those of you who are on race day! Please note that by participating in this event, parents & guardians accept full responsibility for their minor’s participation.
