Overview
Additional Information

Rockton is proud to bring this fun, FREE event to the community for the first time. The Great Rockton Race will take place at Settler’s Park and throughout the town of Rockton.

The Great Rockton Race combines the exhilaration of The Amazing Race with the mental challenges of your far-from-average scavenger hunt for a love of all things Rockton. Participants can expect to have the “funnest experience of their lives.”

Contestants will decode clues, perform challenging tasks and have the opportunity to meet people in the Rockton community, whether they want to or not. The winning team will get prizes, a trophy and best of all…bragging rights. No prior knowledge of the Rockton area is needed, while a good sense of direction and a great sense of humor is encouraged. Registration is limited to 40 teams consisting of five people maximum per team.

The Great Rockton Race’s Facebook page features frequently asked questions, day-of-race information, “Watch and Learn” videos and the online registration link. If you are prepared to have a blast, grab some of your closest friends and family members, form a team and sign-up online for a hilarious, challenging, free experience!
