Join us for the fun tradition of the Rhythm and Roots Race. This year, things will look a little different as we will host a VIRTUAL 5k or 10K Run/Walk & 10-mile or 20-mile Bike Ride.
What does that mean? It means you will be able to walk, run, or ride your OWN race anytime during the race window, October 31-November 14. You can participate in this race from anywhere, so join athletes from across the country and world for Rhythm and Roots 2020.
Join us from your community, treadmill, backyard, park, or trail in your neighborhood. Invite your friends to join you and complete the race together while practicing social distancing.
We’ll miss seeing everyone in person this year, but can’t wait to connect with everyone in a new way. Join the Rhythm and Roots Race Facebook Group to connect with other participants, and post photos of your run/ride!
You will receive your awesome race medal and shirt after the race is completed. Thank you for supporting the race this year. We know you will LOVE the medals.
We look forward to seeing you VIRTUALLY!
Special thanks to our presenting sponsor Plaster Family Dentistry!
