Course Description and Map
This USATF certified 5k course is every runners dream. It is a beautiful run through Rocky Mount's green-way system. The run will feature paved running surfaces along with a wooden pedestrian bridge. You will run on the Rocky Mount Sports Complex running trails, along side the Tar River, under bridges and loop around at Stith-Talbot Park. This course is mixed with open sunny areas as well as mature trees and shaded running paths. This will surely be one of the most scenic 5k runs in eastern NC!
