About Running the Rails

Greetings, Race to the Rocker Runners!

We have an exciting announcement and we wanted you to be the first to know. Two years ago we celebrated the 10th anniversary of Race to the Rocker. After 10 great years we decided it was time to try something new. Our main goal has always been to promote health, fitness, and community. We are changing it up for next year’s race with a new name…

Running the Rails on Route 66!

But have no fear, it’s the same great race committee, sponsors and timing company as before!

This exciting change brought about a new 4 mile route in downtown Cuba on Main St. to Route 66 and the introduction of a Kids’ 1 mile Fun Run.

Make sure to follow us on our Facebook page to stay up to date with the latest information.

We can’t wait to see you on
