Rolex is more than just an incredible 4* event with world class horses and riders in attendance. There truly is something for everyone and all sorts of ways to be involved. The Carter family participated in last night’s inaugural RK3DE Twilight 5k. The course took runners through much of the event, including around Rolex Stadium at dusk. Participants were rewarded with t-shirts and top finishers won prizes. As much as I abhor running, I briefly considered trying to train hard for next year’s RK5k. This would realistically be my best chance to “win at a 4*”.
