Free parking is available for all in the parking lots in front of Rouse High School. Public restrooms will be available. Dogs and babies in strollers are welcome, but please start and stay in the back! All dogs must remain on a leash the entire time and you must clean up after your dog.
THE 1K FUN-RUN
The 1K portion is for the young ones, or people who just want a shorter distance to travel while still supporting our band. This event is not timed and begins just before the 5K race.
Would you like to support the Rouse High School band but are not able to run or walk? No worries, the 0K run is just for you! Bring your comfy lawn chair and when the time counts down to start the 5K, just sit in your chair…it’s that easy!! This run is for our older, or younger, or injured, or lazy, or people who hate running, or non-morning people, or people who simply cannot be at the Pineapple Run but still want to donate and support their favorite band member. You can cheer and motivate from the sidelines but PLEASE bring your own chair, lawn-chair, sofa, cooler with drinks/snacks, umbrella, cheering equipment, whatever you want (as long as it’s legal…we’re on school grounds). People doing the 0K can park it next to the start/finish arch, somewhere on the course, the hydration station, or anywhere you prefer.
This is our first ever 5K event for the Rouse High School band and our last hoorah before we end our school year and look toward our next year and more Excellence from Within. We look forward to seeing you May 5that our 1stAnnual Pineapple 5K Trail Run/Walk!!
