  Fastest Kid in Town @ 5:30 p.m.

We’ve been wondering, just who is the fastest kid in this town, or in Rockcastle County? We’ll find out June 20, when there will be two races. Race one is for kids age 7 and under (1/8 mile or halfway around the track), and one for kids age 8 – 12 (1/4 mile or one lap around the track). Certificates awarded to the top 3 fastest boys and girls in each division.

Family 4x100 Relay Race @ 5:45 p.m.

We’re looking for groups of four to come out for this fun relay race, which will be somewhat like Family Feud, only there’s running, and no survey questions, chatty hosts, or commercials. Just running. You can be male or female, old or young. We simply ask that you all be related, somehow, someway (we’ll accept in-laws if you will). You’ll each run a 100-meter stretch passing a baton to the next runner. The fastest family to complete the quarter-mile lap will have something to talk about at the next reunion!

Charity Chase @ 6:00 p.m.

Run or walk around the track as many times as you can in 30 minutes, and Rockcastle Regional will donate $1 for every lap you complete to the charity you choose (a list of charities will be provided). As in years past, the registration fee is a canned good that goes to the Grateful Bread Food Pantry. (Limit 200 participants in the Charity Chase).
