Past Event

This is a competitive, timed and very unique four mile, point-to-point run from historic downtown Cuba, Missouri to the Route 66 Rocker at Fanning US 66 Outpost in Fanning, Missouri.  The race will begin at Frisco’s Grill and Pub along the BNSF Railway.  Registration is from 7:30 a.m.-8:30 a.m.

The finish will be four miles west of Cuba at “The Rocker.”  All other race information including packet pickup on Friday night at the Cuba Lion’s Den, bus transportation, parking, and much more information will be sent via e-mail to early registrants. Please include your e-mail when you register to get this important information.

The last Race to the Rocker in 2018, had almost 1,250 registrants! We have the expectation of an even larger event in 2023 and will be utilizing a shotgun start by Split-Second-Timing Company, LLC.  Our goal for 2023 is 1,300 registrants.

This will be our 15th year of racing!

We can’t wait to see you for Running the Rails on Route 66 – Back to the Rocker!
