2017 5k Date Announced!


Friday, April 28th at 6pm, join us for the 2017 Rollingwood 5k Family Fun Run! Registration is now open. Don’t forget to pre-order your post-race PTerry’s meal. Online registration will close on April 23rd. A few changes to this year’s race: the route is reversed, more food options have been added, and bikes/scooters are no longer allowed…but leashed-dogs and strollers are a-okay!



Thank you to all who came out to run, walk, and volunteer for the Rollingwood 5k. We had a record number of racers participate this year – over 350! Final results and tally of our fundraising efforts will be posted soon.2016 collage
