Rock the Clock

Rock the Clock logo

What is it?

thousandsA one hour timed race on a there and back course. You have to “beat the clock” and ROCK THE CLOCK to get back within 60 minutes to enter your tickets for the raffle. Runners, joggers and speed walkers will start with one orange ticket and then earn tickets for every half mile they run starting at 1.5 miles (For every half mile you run out, that is a half mile you have to return). You will have 30 minutes to collect as many tickets as possible, then on the return there will be no collection of tickets. Upon completion of the course, participants will drop their tickets into the color coded raffle boxes.

  • 3-4-5 Miles – orange ticket
  • 6-7-8 Miles – yellow ticket
  • 9-10+ Miles – red ticket

Elite Runners will be recognized at the end of the race. (Women: 8+ MPH, Men: 10+ MPH)

Where am I supposed to keep my raffle tickets during the race?

walletGood question! All runners will receive a racing wrist wallet with registration. In lieu of racing bibs (numbers), this must be worn during the race in order to receive raffle tickets from volunteers.

Raffle Rules

ticketsFor every ticket there will be a chance to win prizes at the end of the race. The further you run the better your chances of winning a prize. There will be three categories of prizes based on length of run. Drawings will be made for all three categories (at the discretion of the race director) with the grand prize and many of the bigger prizes coming from the orange ticket pool, giving everyone several chances to win. Everyone will receive at least one orange ticket in their swag (goodie bag) before the race. Participants will be allowed to enter those tickets in the raffle boxes before the run, just in case you make it back late, you will still have a chance to win! The raffle will start immediately following the race. Once the raffle starts, there will be NO more collection of raffle tickets. You must be present to win. Unofficial Rule: We want as many people as possible to win a prize! In the event that someone wins more than one prize, they will be encouraged to “EXCHANGE” or “PASS” on receiving more than one prize. Thanks in advance for spreading the love! GREAT NEWS: If you sign up before July 1st and bring a copy of your registration with the date on it to the race, you will receive an additional raffle ticket!

Kid’s Rock the Clock: THE 8 MINUTE DASH (4 minutes out and back)

9:45 start time (approximate time depending on if we are still giving out prizes). How it will run: Starting at 400 meters, every 200 meters kids will receive tickets to be redeemed at a prize table at the end of the race. The more tickets the bigger the prize! Don’t worry… all kiddos will receive at least one ticket as well and therefore will be able to get a prize. Racers will be encouraged to make it back in time and we will sound the 8 minute horn, but they will be guaranteed a prize even if they make it back late. Parents can run free with their children to help them along the way.
