This fun and challenging 5K winds through historic downtown Rome, and climbs historic Clocktower Hill in the second mile. Both the 5K and the 2-mile health walk courses are very scenic, as they take in much of the “Between the Rivers” district of beautiful downtown Rome. Both events start and end in Heritage Park. Pre and Post Race refreshments, pre and post race massages, music, and fun make this a race not to be misssed. Proceeds go to the Exchange Club Family Resiurce Center for the Prevention of Child Abuse.
