Rock Starlet Challenge

Ladies!  What do we love about Women ROCK?  Running with other women?  The SWAG?  The handsome men giving you the BLING at the finish line?  Maybe it is the bubbly at the post-race party?

There are so many great things about this race!  

Now we are sweetening the deal with a FUN new challenge so you can experience it again and again.  It is called the ROCK STARLET CHALLENGE.

Here is how it works:

 

The Rock Starlet Challenge is 3 races in one morning. There will be multiple times for the 2.5K that you can choose from. The Half, 10K & 5K  will all have separate starting times. You will run one race and it will bring you directly back to the starting line area. The challenging part is depending on your pace is how long your wait will be between races. A faster runner will have a longer break. A slower runner will have a shorter break or sometimes no break at all. After completing all races you will then get your Rock Starlet Challenge medal.

Rock Starlet Challenge - 2.5K, 5K, 10K
Super Rock Starlet Challenge - 2.5K, 5K, Half Marathon
