Run life in the fast lane at Bonnaroo this year. Or walk in the slow lane. Or just party with us on the sidelines. For the third year in a row, we invite you to race around The Farm!
Sign up for the 5 kilometer race by registering online and paying through our payment link!All participants must sign up online, so make sure you register before the festival kicks off. Entrance fee is $15, with all proceeds reinvested back into the community through the Bonnaroo Works Fund.
The Roo Run course twists across the Bonnaroo campgrounds, over hills and through the woods abutting the festival grounds. Make sure you dress for the occasion. Headbands, high socks, and fairy wings are recommended. Athletic shoes are required.
Spectators can kick it however you like. From flip-flops to aquasocks, wear whatever you need to rise and shine to a new day on The Farm. We’ll be handing out prizes to fast runners, slow walkers and the funkiest-dressed early-rising Bonnaroovians in sight.
When you get to the farm: After registering online, make sure you pick up your Roo Run race bib and T-shirt on festival Friday between 10 am - 2 pm at the Roo Run check-in booth near the Cuckoo Clock Tower. To make your participation official, show us proof of registration (printed, or on your phone) and your matching ID.
On race day: On Saturday morning, arrive at the starting line 15 minutes before the 9 am start time. And make sure you’re a well-oiled machine when you toe the line: drink plenty of water and eat healthy before the race begins.
