The first Roadkill Rash was held in 2011. For six long years, we have waited, until the time was right, to hold another. Now, we can come together to compete in our very own quadrathlon to see who is the mightiest, the strongest, and the swiftest of all Roadkill Racing!
On Saturday, June 24th, the second ever Roadkill Rash will be held at 10am at Brighton High School track. Events are as follows:
- 2-mile run
- 200m dash
- long jump
- shot put
Top three in each event will be given 3, 2 and 1 point each. At the end of the day, the highest totalling male and female will win a prize and the glory of being the Roadkill Rash champion. In the event of a tie, the tied runners will arm wrestle for the victory.
In keeping with the spirit of the original Roadkill Rash, this event is free to all Roadkill Racing members, and no registration is needed. Just show up at the Brighton High School track on Saturday, June 24th before 10am to be counted.

Memoirs of the 2016 Rehoboth Seashore Marathon from the slower side Several months ago, this gal crazily agreed to run a marathon with some Roadkill teammates. “It will be fun!” they said. There was a futile attempt at training as the super hot sunny days made it near impossible to get the needed runs in. […] Continue reading →
On Saturday, December 3rd, 2016, seven Roadkill Racing competitors toed the line at the Rehoboth Beach Marathon in Delaware.

Just a quick update on my racing. As I mentioned earlier, I haven’t been racing very well this past year. I’ve been changing up my training a bit with the help of my dad and I’m starting to see some positive results. I still don’t feel like I’m where I should be, or could be […] Continue reading →

I know I’m skinny. I’ve been skinny my whole life. What I didn’t know is that I have become the literal model for skinny runners on the internet.

Take a few minutes out of your day and watch Ron Heerkens short film about the 0SPF Trail Half marathon. It is really the story of a group of dedicated runners sharing what they love with the rest of the running community. After watching the movie head over to #TrailsRoc and see what else Eric and his […] Continue reading →
Racing hurts. You can’t train away the pain. The more you train and the better shape you are in the faster you can run, but the level of discomfort doesn’t change very much. If anything, proper training lets you run in discomfort for longer periods of time. Racing your best means not only dealing with […] Continue reading →
I think of myself as a fairly introspective person. I am aware, however, that most people including myself have an inflated sense of self when it comes to those qualities we think are important. This is a roundabout way of saying– I’ve been deluding myself for about a year now. Last year at this time I […] Continue reading →

With 31 total competitors, Roadkill Racing showed that last year’s turnout was […] Continue reading →

I think Christine Klein’s husband Tom is actually a ninja. He came to every XC race, where we saw him before and after the race, but somehow also took hundreds of photos during the races without me even noticing. Thanks to him, we now have almost 300 photos chronicling our cross country season. They can […] Continue reading →
All 4 Perkses raced on Thanksgiving this year. Lisa and I ran the “5 mile” race, Hazel and Roo ran the 1 mile. For reasons known only to the race director all the starting locations were changed along with the race distances. The 5 mile has never been exactly 5 miles it was probably closer […] Continue reading →
