The City of Rockville and the Montgomery County Roadrunners Club in conjunction with the Rotary Club of Rockville made a decision to cancel the Twilight Runfest on July 20 for the safety of the participants. We understand how disappointing this was to the 2,000 runners, the spectators and sponsors who registered and came to the race. Because of the proximity and intensity of the lightning in the area, we feel we made the responsible decision to postpone and ultimately cancel the race.

The 2013 Twilighter is Saturday July 20th, 2013
The 2013 Darcars Rockville Rotary Twilight Runfest is Saturday, July 20 and the festival kicks off at 7pm with live music by Lloyd Dobbler Effect. Ten year old pop star Aishlinn Kivlighn will sing the National Anthem and the Mayor and Council will welcome runners at 8:30 p.m. The races start at 8:40 p.m. (wheelchair division), 8:45 p.m. (8K), and 8:50 p.m. (1K fun run) and start on North Washington Street in town center. The course runs through Rockville neighborhoods and the Montgomery College Rockville Campus, and turns south on Rockville Pike as it returns to town center.
Due to construction at the college, the race route was slightly re-routed this year. The course will be closed to traffic.
The registration fee is $34 on-line through June 30th and $39 on-line from July 1 through 4pm on July 19th. From 5-8 p.m on July 19 registrations will be accepted at Potomac River Running in Rockville Town Square for the same fee. From 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on July 20, registration will be held at Potomac River Running and the fee increases to $45. The 1K fun run is $10, and packet pick up is at Potomac River Running.
The race benefits the Youth Recreation Fund, and Community Grants through the Rockville Rotary Club. The Youth Recreation Fund provides financial assistance to Rockville children who may not otherwise be able to participate in City programs and activities such as childcare, sports leagues and camps. The Rockville Rotary Club provides grants to organizations within Rockville that promote diversity, youth activities, cultural enrichment and service projects in the community.
The Rockville Rotary Twilight Runfest is presented by Darcars and the Rockville Rotary Club, hosted by the City of Rockville and conducted by the Montgomery County Road Runners Club.
