The Rockdale Career Academy’s 9th annual RUN RCA 5K/1-Mile Run will be held on Saturday, March 9, 9 a.m. – noon.
The annual tradition raises funds to help RCA students participate in career pathway-related competitions and real-world projects.
The course, which tours nearby industries, starts and ends at Rockdale Career Academy, 1064 Culpepper Drive, Conyers. The moderate terrain is family-friendly, stroller-friendly and a great way to achieve a great course time. This year’s race also involves a professional challenge between local first responders participating in the race. Free health screenings by RCA healthcare pathway students, snacks, and a fun warm-up are provided on site.
Race day registration opens at 9 a.m. The 1-Mile Fun Run starts at 10:30 a.m. The 5K Run starts at 11 a.m.
Registration can be made before the race day or on race day at active.com or www.tinyurl.com/RunRCA2019. Registration is $20 and participants receive a long-sleeve T-shirt. Awards will be given to the top finishers in the categories of Overall Male/Female, Masters Male/Female, top three per age group Male/Female from ages 10 to 75-plus.
