Rockville 10K/5K Ready for a Run Through King Farm

Expect runners and road closures on Sunday morning.

While the New York City Marathon is off, Hurricane Sandy’s much less devastating damage in Rockville will not deter runners in King Farm on Sunday as they take to the course for the 37th annual Rockville 10K/5K.

There is still time to register for the county’s oldest annual race. Here’s how:

  • Pick up a race packet on Saturday at the Potomac River Running Store in Rockville Town Square. Registration cost: $35.
  • Register between 7:30 and 8 a.m. on Sunday, race day, at the King Farm Village Center. Cost: $40.

The 10K race begins at 8:30 a.m., followed by the 5K, 10 to 15 minutes later. Runners are encouraged to arrive before 8 a.m. The start and finish line of the course is within walking distance of the Shady Grove Metro station at King Farm Village Center. Click here for directions.

The race benefits the Rockville Youth Recreation Fund. It is presented by the City of Rockville and managed by the Montgomery County Road Runners Club.

The 10K race is a qualifier for the Maryland Senior Olympics.

Expect road closures around King Farm Village Center until 11 a.m. Rockville city police and volunteer course marshals will close streets from 8 to 10:30 a.m., including:

  • Redland Boulevard.
  • Gaither Road.
  • Piccard Drive.
  • West Gude Drive (The course will avoid all residential areas east of Pleasant Drive.)

For more information on the race, or to volunteer, email rocrun@mcrrc.org or call 301-651-3772.
