September is National Recovery Awareness Month. 

Run, walk, or just join our virtual community for the fun updates, posts and pictures! ROCovery Fitness’ 7th Annual 5K and X-Challenge is a celebration of fitness and recovery, and an important fundraiser for this life saving organization—and this year, due to the continued COVID-19 pandemic and mitigation protocols still in place for many, it is both in-person and virtual!

In just over 6 years, ROCovery Fitness has engaged over 4,700 individuals recovering from drug and alcohol addiction. We provide a safe place for recovery of both mind and body, helping people rebuild their lives and rediscover their inner strength and confidence through adventure, fun, and camaraderie.

The ROCovery Fitness 5K celebrates the hope we find in recovery, and remembers loved ones who have been lost to the disease of addiction. Whether you are running for yourself, for someone you love, or for someone you've lost, we hope you will run (or walk!) for ROCovery Fitness!

If you are a person in recovery who is in need of financial assistance to sign up for the 5k please email us at:  [email protected]

All runners and walkers will receive a swag bag with a custom bib and race t-shirt!  

Sign up by 8/20/21 for the option of a sport-tek race shirt!  All memorial signs must be ordered by 8/31/21.  We can't wait to see you at the event!
