*** Please continue to review this page for any additional changes or updates to the race.  We will keep this section updated with the most current information on the race status.

Like all of you, we are carefully watching the situation with the Coronavirus and monitoring guidance from the CDC and state and local authorities as it pertains to events and large gatherings of people.  At this point in time, we do not have reason or guidance that to cancel the 5th Annual Suds & Soles 5K but we are planning some probable changes to our race operations and even looking at options of postponing the event a couple of weeks to allow for increased precautions. 

As you may know, this race raises money for recreation and parks services in Rockville and for youth and beginning running programs provided by MCRRC so it is our sincere hope that we can hold the event this year.  While our registration remains open, we want to remind you that we have a no refund policy so if you choose to register and we are forced to cancel the race, know that your entry fee will still benefit a good cause.

While we all wait to see how things unfold with the coronavirus, get outside and go for a run!  This is a great time to start training for Suds & Soles, and it’s also a great time to check out some of the curbside pick up options from our local partners in the craft beer industry.  They are open and here to help you get through this time!   Keep an eye on our Facebook page for information from our breweries and updates on the race!


Get ready for a great evening of fun at the 5th running of the Suds & Soles 5K!

The Suds & Soles 5K will be held Saturday, June 20, 2020 at 7:30pm in Rockville Town Center.  The race is presented through a partnership of the Montgomery County Road Runners Club and the City of Rockville.  The 5K Run is open to all ages and will be followed by a fantastic post race party!  Adults will be able to sample beverages from local breweries as well as enjoy other post-race refreshments.

Getting to the Race and Parking

Ample parking for the race is available in Town Center garages and the Rockville Metro parking lot. Remember parking at metro is no longer free on Saturdays so while the parking is still there, you will have to pay for it.

If you need an alternative to driving, please consider MetroUber or Lyft.


Bag Check

Bag check will be provided and will be located near M & T Bank (corner of Courthouse Square and North Washington Street).  You must supply your own bag, labelled clearly with your bib number.  

Bag check is provided as a courtesy to our participants – items are checked at your own risk and MCRRC assumes no responsibility for any valuables.  Please claim your bags by 8:45pm.  Unclaimed bags will be returned to MCRRC and donated if not claimed within 2 weeks.


Suds & Soles will also feature a KidZone with activities designated only for children ages 10 and younger. The KidZone activities include a moon bounce, games, sports activities, bubbles, tattoos, popcorn, and ice pops. In addition, there will be a short Fun Run at 7:35pm. A bib is required for all children to enter the KidZone and participate in the Fun Run. Bibs must be worn by children entering the KidZone; bibs are $10 each for children ages 5 to 9, bibs are $5 for children ages 4 and under.

Again, registration is required for entry into the KidZone and participation in the Fun Run. Registration helps us to identify children as well to plan appropriately for food and activities both this year and for the future.

Parents must remain with their children while in the KidZone. Parents do not need to purchase a bib to enter the KidZone. (Bibs from the 5K event, worn by children ages 10 and younger, will be accepted for entry to the KidZone. You do not need to purchase another bib for them.)

KidZone closes at 9:00pm!
