About This Event
Please join us Sunday, 9/21/2014 for the 2nd Annual Rocket Race to benefit Auburn Youth and Family Services. This race features a 10k, 5k, and 1k Fun Run (kids under 10 only, please). The race starts and ends at Auburn High School, and this year we are pleased to announce RaceWire timing for real-time splits and Top Finisher results. In addition to the run, we will also have a bounce-house and other healthy activities for kids. FINZ from the Worcester Sharks will be around to help our runners warm up, cheer on the kids, and give away Sharks tickets to a few lucky participants. All proceeds go directly to Auburn Youth and Family Services. We welcome all ages and skill levels to this fun-filled, healthy day!
Top 3 Male and Female finishers in 10k and 5k categories will receive a medal. All 1k Fun Runners will receive a ribbon.
T-Shirts & Goodie Bags
All runners, including same-day registrants, will receive a goodie bag. All pre-registered adults will receive a cotton tee shirt, and first 50 Fun Runners will receive a child's size tee shirt. Additional shirts will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.

The 10k is a loop starting with a moderate hill, leveling out mid-race, and ending in a fast downhill slope. Frequent water stops, signs and cheerleaders will be present throughout the race.
