Roo Run

Fifth First Annual Roo Run

Fifth First Annual Roo Run

What: A 5k race across the festival grounds & Magic Affair costume party
Where: Starting line is at the West Broadway Highway Toll Booth

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, open May 20th, so make sure you register before the festival kicks off. Entrance fee is $20, with all proceeds reinvested back into the community through the Bonnaroo Works Fund. If you’re a slacker and want to wait until you get to the Farm we will have one line for new registrations. But we can’t promise you a spot in this amazing race as it may sell out!

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 shirt on festival Friday between 10 am – 2 pm at the RooRun booth located beside the Info Booth at Pod 4. To make your participation official, show us proof of registration (printed, or on your phone) and your matching ID (must be 18 or older).

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.

We will not be signing up or handing out any bibs on the morning of the RooRun so please ensure to pick up at check in on Festival Friday!

Dress to Impress: These shenanigans are serious business! Let’s support the Magic of Bonnaroo by decking ourselves with the best roodiculous costumes you can think of! One Rooner with the best costume will be awarded the grand prize of all Rooners!

Thanks to our sponsor: GNC is thrilled to be presenting the Roo Run for the third year running (pun intended). Join us during registration on Friday and at the starting line on Race Day, to fuel up with GNC product and giveaways. After the race, stop by the GNC experience in Centeroo (across from the Christmas Barn) for an exclusive Roo Run after party, complete with gift bags for all runners who show their bib!
