The RCU Foundation is transitioning the 2020 Rock the Riverfront featuring the Charity Classic event to a virtual race. This decision has been made with the safety of attendees in mind.

Participants will receive a charity vote, T-shirt, and medal. Registration will be open through June 27 at 11:59pm. Participants will be mailed their T-shirt and medal at the end of July.

Each year, three charities receive Rock the Riverfront proceeds. Funds are distributed according to the number of votes each charity receives, with the first place winner receiving $15,000, the second place winner receiving $7,500, and the third place winner receiving $5,000. Each registration includes one charity vote.

Participants will be able to complete their race anytime and anywhere between June 27-July 12.
