DARCARS Rockville Rotary Twilight Runfest
Start of last year's event.
July 16, 2012
Rockville Town Center is the place to be for the 27th running of the DARCARS Rockville Rotary Twilight Runfest, Saturday, July 21, 2012. The Twilight Runfest Festival begins at 7:00 p.m. with live music, dancing, and variety of food vendors for the entire family. At day's twilight, the wheelchair race takes off at 8:40 p.m. followed by the 8K race at 8:45 p.m. and the 1K Fun Run at 8:50 p.m. Spectators will have a front row seat watching elite runners compete for open, masters, and age group awards. Most runners will be there for the pure enjoyment of running a "night-time event" and partying after they cross the finish line.
The 8K USATF certified course takes you through Rockville neighborhoods with a new and improved route around the Montgomery College campus. It has some rolling hills so the neighbors will be there to cheer you on. The 1K Fun Run is a short out and back with both races finishing under the balloon arch and lights.
HOT WEATHER WARNING: Runners are reminded that it is typically hot and humid during this event and you should be properly trained for these conditions. Be sure to be properly hydrated before the race and take water on the course.
