About the event

Get ready for the 12th Annual Renfro Rock 'N Run Half Marathon and 5K Run/Walk! The Renfro Rock N Run Half Marathon has a tradition of being one of Kentucky’s most unique and fun races.

Renfro Valley, Kentucky, home of the world-famous entertainment center and the Kentucky Music Hall of Fame, is known for its music, from Bluegrass to classic country to rock. Rockcastle County is home to a rock-solid, enthusiastic bunch who has taken to running and dare you to keep up. At the Rock N Run, they share the road, and their countryside, with you.

You’ll dash past rustic cabins, trot alongside a beautiful lake, and pass through some of Kentucky’s prettiest farmscapes. 

Part of the Rockcastle Regional Countywide Stride run/walk series, and winner of the Jackson Healthcare Hospital Charitable Services Program of Excellence Award.

So, come on, y’all, Rock N Run!

COSTUME CONTEST

Our Music Costume Contest is always a favorite. The contest is open to Half Marathoners as well as 5K’ers. We’re looking for musical-themed costumes only. Be creative. Musical notes, Elvis jumpsuits, Johnny Cash black, etc. We can’t wait to see what you come up with!

Contestants must check-in at the registration tent and have their picture taken. On race day we will post the pictures on our Facebook page. The one with the most “likes” by Oct. 31 at noon will win $100.

(All costume participants must wear their costume for the duration of the race and race bib must be visible for time tracking.)
