“The Hometown Hustle is a chip-timed 5K race and fun run/walk.  It brings community members of all ages together to enjoy the picturesque race route that runs through the historic neighborhoods of Downtown Rochester, the Rochester Municipal Park and the Paint Creek and Clinton River Trails,” said RCF Foundation Chairman and Volunteer Bob Justin.

In 2015, the Hometown Hustle attracted more than 1,100 participants and raised more than $25,000 for the RCS Foundation. “The Hometown Hustle is critical to the mission of the RCS Foundation,” said RCS Foundation Director Lori Grein. “It enables the RCS Foundation to provide grants and scholarships which support enhanced educational and learning opportunities for district students.”
