Rock N Run

The Rock n Run sets the stage for Porchfest with an electric blend of running and rocking. Decked out in their favorite rock star costumes, participants take a lively jog around the neighborhood. Spanning just 1 mile, it's perfect for the whole family or even doubling up for some extra mileage. So, lace up those sneakers and get ready to rock with us!
