Age group winners ages 19 and under will be awarded medals or trophies instead of cash prizes, so as not to
interfere with KHSAA (Kentucky High School Athletic Association) and NCAA competition eligibility regulations and requirements. Youth, high school, collegiate, and/or other amateur athletes are responsible for being aware of eligibility rules as it relates to awards such as cash or merchandise. The athlete is responsible for notifying the Rodes City Run 10K if some award other than Cash prize purse needs to be awarded as substitute, in which case cash awards will not roll up. Specific eligibility questions need to be referred to the appropriate coach, athletic director, or governing body. The Rodes City Run 10K accepts no responsibility for eligibility violations.

Race record winner(s) will receive a $200 cash award (current records are 28:50-men's and 33:15-women's).

Awards Ceremony will begin between 9:00 and 9:30 a.m. (weather permitting and depending on the field size). Only top 5 finishers (men & women) and wheel chair will be announced. There will be NO individual award checks given on race day. ALL awards will be mailed within the next 2 weeks following the race.

 

The top overall winners (1st Place) in all three categories (Male, Female & Wheelchair) will receive a one-of-a-kind award plate/plaque designed and

TIMING

The Rodes City Run 10K will be using the state-of-the-art race timing technology from ChronoTrack, implemented by Enmotive Race Management.

 

The Rodes City Run 10K, and the other Louisville Triple Crown of Running races in the series, is proud to announce the implementation of ChronoTrack, a new innovation that allows for the use of disposable tags called, B-Tags. One of the many goals of the ChronoTrack system is to simplify the timing process for athletes

ChronoTrack Systems, having continued their pioneering work in UHF timing systems, is now pleased to announce the arrival of the most anticipated technology in race timing history: the B-Tag, a disposable UHF RFID tag that stays mounted on the runner’s bib.
Because the B-Tag is mounted on the back of the runner’s bib, it is virtually invisible to the participant and requires no special pre or post race handling. The disposable B-Tag insures high accuracy, fast results and simplicity of use for races of all sizes.

NOTE: Please be sure to wear your bib on the outside of all your garments for accurate timing. 
CLICK HERE for the B-Tag instruction sheet.

 

SOCIAL MEDIA (Results)

Be sure to sign up for the Chronotrack Messaging System before the race. The Rodes City Run (and Louisville Triple Crown of Running) are proud to be the first running event in the area to provide this service, joining such other elite events as the Disney Marathon, Army 10 Miler and the L. A. Marathon.
Implemented by Enmotive, this live runner tracking and social media messaging has becoming the standard in the running industry. Race participants who want to connect with their colleagues, friends and family to share their excitement and pride in accomplishing a goal, can sign up prior to the race to get instant results after crossing the Finish line!

PARKING

The 5th Street Garage is available for parking on race day, but it only has 800 spaces so it’s “first come, first serve” and you’ll need to arrive early to get a spot. It’s best to come south on 3rd street (which will be open until around 7:00-7:30), turn right on York, and right aging on 5th St. (open indefinitely) across Broadway. The Garage is on the right before you get to Chestnut. There are also numerous indoor and outdoor parking garages & lots in the area.
