Piece of Cake 5K/10K 2024
March 24, 2024 @ 8:30 am - 10:30 am
MCRRC was born in March of 1978, though Piece of Cake was created more than 25 years ago (March 24, 1996)! We invite you to join us in celebrating the club’s birthday. Piece of Cake will be held at a new location for 2024! The race will start and finish at Robert Frost Middle School (9201 Scott Drive, Rockville, MD) and will loop through the surrounding neighborhood. Those participating in the 10K will complete the course a second time.
SCHEDULE OF EVENTS:
- 8:30 AM – 10K (CS) and 5K Start
- 8:35 AM – Young Runs Start – 0.5 Mile & 1 Mile (YR)

MCRRC Members –
This race is part of our low-key race series and is FREE for MCRRC members. Race registration is not required for members; however, members must signup for a 2024 bib & chip. The signup is coming soon! If you have a 2023 (or older) chip, please bring it with you to exchange for your 2024 bib & chip. If you are a new member, or no longer have an older chip, please remember to bring a $5 chip deposit with you.
*** If you already requested a personalized 2024 bib, you do NOT need to register online – your bib will be waiting for you at registration.
Non-MCRRC Members –
Registration is to non-MCRRC members at a cost of $15 for participants ages 18 & over and $10 for participants under 18. Online registration will remain open until the start of the race. Late registrants may register online before leaving the house or from your smartphone at the race site. Please remember to bring your credit card or cash with you if you plan to register on race morning. Non-members can register here.
Bib and chip pickup will take place on race morning near the start area. A volunteer will be on hand to assist you.
There will be no timing chips used for the young runs. Young runs will begin at 8:35 AM and participants can run a 0.5 mile or 1 mile. The runs are FREE, but all participants must be registered by a parent or guardian prior to race day (members and non-members). Register here! ***IMPORTANT NOTE: Parents or Guardians DO NOT need to register for the young runs to accompany your child. You are welcome to jump right in with them, if needed!
MCRRC is a volunteer organization and our events are fully staffed by the hard work of our volunteers. Without them, our races wouldn’t be possible. Volunteers are needed for this event. Please sign up here to volunteer!
If you are a non-MCRRC member, and can no longer attend the race, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can move your registration to another MCRRC low-key event and open up a spot for someone else. Monetary refunds will not be provided.
