Upcoming Events

Rock the Creek Relay 

Sunday, September 25, 2016

Teams start between 7:30 & 9:30 a.m.

This is the perfect event for casual or want-to-be runners or runners training for a big event. Thanks to founding board member, Bob Fleshner, founder and race director of RDB Running, Hope Connections has been named the beneficiary Rock the Creek Relay. This is a 30-mile, six-leg relay that will start and finish at Lake Needwood Park in Rockville, MD.  A beautiful day in the park, coupled with lots of great people, food and music, make this an event you don’t want to miss.
