A road race has been part of Rockingham’s Old Home Days since the very beginning. For many years it was hosted by the Rockingham Recreation Department. It started as a 4.2 mile race that included a daunting climb up Pond Road and a harrowing descent on North Ridge Road. In the 1980s it was shortened and flattened to the more common 5 km distance. With construction on Canal Street we have moved the start and finish to the Rockingham Recreation Center on Playground Road for 2022. This 5 km course which was used for many years in the 1990s and 2000s features a downhill first half mile, a couple of pretty flat miles in the middle and a climb back to the Rec Center in the last half mile.
