Rockville Rotary Twilight Runfest

Saturday, July 20th, 6:30pm - 10:30pm

The 2019 Rockville Rotary Twilight Runfest – known locally as the Twilighter – includes a pre-race festival, an 8k road race, a one-mile family Fun Run and a post-race festival and party. Since its inception in 1985, this community event has become one of the most popular summer races in the National Capital area.

Since 1985, The Twilighter has raised and charitably donated more than $2 million dollars, supporting the City of Rockville’s Recreation Fund, and many local, national and international programs and non-profit organizations funded by the Rockville Rotary Club Foundation. These grantees have included local organizations such as Arts for the Aging, Best Buddies Maryland, Community Ministries of Rockville, Cub Scouts, Interfaith Works, Montgomery Community Media, Rockville Cemetery Association, Montgomery Miracles, Nourish Now Foundation, the Richard Montgomery High School Robotics Team, Stepping Stones Shelter, and the Treatment and Learning Centers. Funds raised also support international efforts such as school construction in Haiti, creation of international vision clinics, mammogram education and screening projects in India and, Rotary International’s signature initiative, PolioPlus.
