When I select the 8K to register, and go to the next screen— what is the difference between the options Individual- NO TEAM and selecting the 8k? Those of us trying to register don’t know which one to pick. Thanks!
What is the date of 2019 Twilight 8K Runfest? https://rockvilletwilighter.org says "Race Day is Saturday, July 22, 2019," but that's MONDAY!
My new friend Cheryl. I may not have run the 8k but my poncho did!!
Was wondering if anyone was taking pictures last night?
THANK YOU to all the amazing volunteers! We runners were very cold and wet and we know that you were colder and wetter! Thank you for your cheers, smiles, and support!
Is the race still on
Is this run rain or shine? Looking at the forecast now... looks like rain....
Are there finished medals for this race?
Signing up for the Rockville Twilighter!!
Thank you Rockville Rotary Twilight Runfest.
Is there a contact person for the awards? I was third overall and first masters, and the top finishers were told that their prize would be mailed to them. I have yet to receive anything. I've sent several emails to the address listed on the event's official website but there's been no response. Thank you.
