You may be familiar with the popular “Rock & Run” put on each year by SPAC. But this year, there’s an additional feature to the day. See what’s happening!
SPAC has announced that there will be a new Half Marathon (13.1 miles) race as part of the highly anticipated annual “Rock & Run” fundraiser in the Spa State Park on Sunday, May 15, 2016. The Day will also include a 5K, 10K, Kids’ 50 Yard Dash and a post-party on the SPAC lawn.
“SPAC’s ‘Rock & Run’ is the perfect high-energy precursor to our 2016 Season, providing critical financial support for local children from underserved backgrounds to participate in SPAC’s 50th Anniversary Celebration,” said Marcia J. White, SPAC’s President & Executive Director. “The addition of a half marathon race to the ‘Rock & Run’ promises to bring this family-favorite event to a whole new level for local runners. I want to express my tremendous thanks to our Action Council members, whose creativity, time and effort make this year’s highly anticipated event possible.”
