Get registered to run because the Suds & Soles 5K’s return to Rockville Town Center is fast approaching.

After the success of last year’s inaugural race, the Montgomery County Road Runners Club and the City of Rockville are teaming up again to present Suds & Soles at 7 p.m. on Saturday, June 24. This 5K course on neighborhood roads begins and ends in Town Center with a post-race party featuring live music and the opportunity to sample great beverages from a commemorative mug. The KidZone, for children 9 and under, will feature a kids fun run, children’s activities and light refreshments.

Before May 29, registration for the 5K is $35 for adults, $20 for ages 10-20, and $15 for kids under 10. After May 29, registration increases to $40 (adults), $25 (ages 10-20) and $20 (kids under 10). KidZone registration is $10 for ages 5-9. Kids under 5 are free, but registration is requested. Parents must remain with children while in the KidZone. Packet pickup will begin at 6 p.m. on race day in Rockville Town Center. There are no refunds.

Proceeds benefit the Rockville Recreation and Parks Foundation, Inc.’s Rockville Recreation Fund and MCRRC’s youth and beginning running programs. Learn more about the Rockville Recreation Fund at www.rockvillemd.gov/recreation/financialassistance.
