17th annual Hometown Hustle 5k and 1-mile Superhero color run/walk

RCSF Treasured Tradition Continues!

Let's keep the tradition going strong!

Let's come together again to walk, run or fly as ONE community for ONE cause: the students of Rochester Community Schools! 


About this event:                                                          

The Rochester Community Schools (RCS) Foundation Hometown Hustle, is a five-kilometer, timed or untimed fun run/walk, presented by Chief Financial Credit Union. It has become an annual treasured tradition and principal fundraiser that brings together more than 1,300 participants and onlookers to celebrate fitness, family time and donating to a great cause - enhancing the educational experience of all RCS students!

New this school year! 
A one-mile untimed route has been approved for runners, walkers or wannabe flyers to be doused with different colors from head to toe! Participants will receive a cape and sunglasses and wear white at the starting line and finish the race plastered in color. Once the race is over, the fun continues in the parking lot of Chief Financial Credit Union, with music, some dancing, photo ops, sponsors, and A MORE MASSIVE color throw, which creates millions of vivid color combinations.
