Covered Bridge

2019 HS Covered Bridge Run

The 2019 Covered Bridge Run is fast approaching. The high school meet will be on Saturday, Sept 7. (see on MileSplit). The venue is Garrard Landing Park at 8000 Holcomb Bridge Road (see on Google Maps).  This park is located at the edge of Roswell where Holcomb Bridge Road crosses the river and enters Gwinnett County.

ALL PARENTS OF RUNNERS ARE NEEDED TO PARTICIPATE IN SOME CAPACITY.  This is a significant undertaking and we need more than 120 volunteers.  If your name is not on this list, please sign up today! You are guaranteed to have a good time and make some great memories.

We are anticipating over 1,000 high school runners which means we need to manage many people, cars, and buses. 

All volunteers will be contacted (probably email) by a member of the organizing committee to communicate more details about their role.  This should happen about one week prior to the meets.

All positions are designed to allow you the freedom to watch your child's race, but please take note of your child's race time.  The race schedule is as follows:

 Saturday morning High School Meet (5k course)
 7:50 am - Varsity Boys (top 10)
 8:15am - Varsity Girls (top 10)
 8:50am - JV Boys
 9:25am - JV Girls

Please wear your RHS Spirit Wear or anything green. We plan to have a special “ultra-soft" 2019 Covered Bridge t-shirt available for pre-sale. We will provide supplies/equipment for most of the spots where it is needed.

Thank you in advance for helping us make this Covered Bridge Run a fun event for the whole family.

Date: 09/07/2019 (Sat.)

Time: 5:30am - 11:30am EDT

Location: Garrard Landing Park - 8000 Holcomb Bridge Road
