The 6th annual RHABA 10K for 2012 will use a USAT&F newly certified course (very similar to past years). We will once again reserve the entire eastbound lane of Hwy 65 for runners. After 3 short hills, our course is flat & well marked with course marshals at every turn. The fastest runner in 2009 finished in 32.43 min. & in 2010, 34.47. This is not only a great 10k for serious runners; our flat course is also great for families and first time 10k runners.
Awards: Trophies for the best 3 Male & the best 3 Female times (total of 6). Gold, Silver, & Bronze Medals for the top 3 Males & top 3 Females in each of 10 Age Groups not receiving a trophy (total of 54). Newly designed T-Shirts for all pre-registered runners and for walk-ups as supplies last! (see logo above)
10K Fees: Early-registration: $25.00 by mail or online by Oct 16 at no additional fee, $30 for walk up registration on race day.
There will be 2 water stations for runners, one early in the course that runners will again pass on the last leg of the race and one about mid-point at the turn around. Safety officials will staff all intersections, giving runners the right of way over traffic and the Glade St crossing has been eliminated. Race volunteers will call out runners course times at mile markers along the way. Twin City Track Club from Winston Salem, NC will officiate the start/finish line and will post official times on their web site.
