23rd Annual Run to the Rock

5K - 10K - 1/2 Marathon

                           Run to the Rock 10K

The 10K race begins at 9 Resnik Road, the home of the Boys & Girls Club of Plymouth (the race beneficiary).  Although the club, which opened in 1911 as the Plymouth Boys Club, has undergone many physical changes in the past 101 years including a name change to The Boys & Girls Club of Plymouth and the opening of the current facility in 2003.  The mission has remained the same:  to enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens. The Boys & Girls Club of Plymouth will provide area youth with activities designed to build self-esteem, develop leadership skills, and promote positive life choices.

                                     The Course

The 10K course offers some challenges that the 5K does not have.  The first couple of miles are within the Industrial/Office Park where the Boys & Girls Club is located.  Many of the roads are named after famous astronauts, including Armstrong and Aldrin.  As you make your turn onto Armstrong around mile 1, you will be facing a memorable hill.  This is the largest hill on the course but there are some other, much less significant ups and downs.  Once you leave the park you will follow the back roads and neighborhoods and find yourself merging with the 5K course around mile 4.  The rest of the course takes you along the water, past Nelson Park, the Mayflower and across the finish line at Plymouth Rock.
