Roots & Rocks Adventures

Wherever you’re starting and wherever you’re going …
let us be a part of your journey!

Who Are We?

We are a couple of friends who love running and love nature.We are so incredibly grateful for the beautiful place that we live and we value the friendships we have made in the local running community. We want to give people the opportunity to connect with the ground beneath their feet while connecting with each other and with themselves. We want to challenge people physically, mentally, and emotionally. We want to help people grow and become better versions of themselves. And we want to encourage people to get outside and play!! The Blue Ridge Mountains and the Shenandoah Valleys are calling!

What do we do?

We produce local races and hiking adventures that challenge competitors of all abilities. Whether you prefer to compete for the win, or hike your way through the woods with friends, we are happy to have you join us for a unique and adventurous experience outside!

At all of our events you will be delighted with fun and challenging courses, crowd control with limited race entries, professional operations and chip timing. All of our races include a fantastic post-race party with plentiful food, custom t-shirts, and great music.
