We invite you to participate in our 5K, 10K or half-marathon, in celebration of music and healthy living.
Our race honors the legacy of Betsy Farris, Roots N Blues N BBQ Festival director from 2009-2016. Betsy trained, inspired, and mentored many people on their journeys to get fit and stay healthy. Our race is produced by our friends at Off Track Events.

Shuttle service for the run will pick up starting at 6am. Please allow extra time for this option.
This parking garage is a quick 5-10 minute walk to the starting line. It makes for a great warm-up run!
