The USATF-sanctioned race will take off from the Causeway on Rocky Neck and return by way of Gloucester’s ocean-rimmed Back Shore to finish on Rocky Neck, where participants will be treated to a celebratory post-Race brunch and awards ceremony at The Studio Restaurant and Deck, overlooking picturesque Smith Cove on Gloucester Harbor.
The Rocky Neck 5K & Team Challenge will be a community ‘happening’ which benefits a neighborhood-based, volunteer organization committed to preserving Rocky Neck’s unique arts and maritime cultural heritage. And, it will be an event offering lots of FUN for lots of people!
Nearly anyone can run or walk this event. Beginners can get a taste of what exercise and outdoor enjoyment bring.
