Bold Rock Half Marathon & 5k

Join us for the inaugural Bold Rock Half Marathon & 5k which begins and ends at the Mills River Cidery. 

The Half Marathon starts at 7:30 am and will take runners on rolling hills and along scenic farmland. 

Shortly after that, at 8:00 am, the 5k will take their marks and head out of Bold Rock. 

Whether you're joining us for the Half Marathon or 5k, each participant (21+) can toast their achievement with a refreshing Bold Rock Hard Cider on us! Also included in the half marathon registration is a long sleeved tee and finisher medal. 5k runners can add the t-shirt on for $20 during the on-line registration process.  Sizes not guaranteed after 9/15/19.

Each Half Marathon runner will be awarded their Finisher Medal after they pass through the finish line. There is a 3.5 hour time limit for the Bold Rock Half Marathon.
