Concord, NH (May 15th, 2014)

There’s a lot of themes for road races but none that I’ve ever heard of with bands throughout the route.

Thursday evening was the annual 5k Rock-N-Race foot race in the Capital City of New Hampshire.  Concord hosted 6,000 registered runners and walkers that raised over $500,000 dollars for the local cancer unit.

The course started and ended at the State Capitol Building.  We ran through local neighborhoods, state property, and parking lots.  Bands were generously scattered throughout the course of the race which gave motivation to all participants.

Marcus and Jim ended up running the race.  Tami was planning on it but her Mom had heart surgery that afternoon, so she had to miss it 😦  Marcus ran a 29 min race and Jim ran a 39 min race.

The post event was rewarded with fantastic food from pulled pork, fresh mac-n-cheese, lobster bisque, oven-fired pizza, to ice cream. Certainly not your average energy bar and water that I’ve gotten at other races.


If you are ever in the Concord, NH area in May and want a great run and experience different music, this is the event for you!!

🙂
