Just got a notification that registration for Rocketman 2016 is open, I've never competed there before and was looking for some insight as to what to expect from the race area itself (kid friendly, plenty of shade for the family we all drag along with us, pain to get in and out of, etc) I'll be coming in from the Hattiesburg area so any information from the locals would be appreciated.

In years past it was held on Redstone Arsenal, but this year they moved it to Ditto. I did not race it this year, but am familiar with the area. Ditto is a nice place for the family to hang out during the race. It does have a lot of shade and camp sites if you wanted to camp. There is a play ground at the camp site for the kids. Its really close to town and is easy to get in and out of. over all it is a good race with a really nice venue. Hope this helps.....


Here is the google map of the area

Probably one of my favorite Oly courses. It's been on Redstone, but the move to Ditto Landing was awesome.

Of course, this year, it poured a monsoon just hours before the start and parking became a nightmare, but it was manageable. I enjoyed it. The course was great and the run was even better.

You can't ask for a better race venue than Rocketman. It's fast and fun.

Hope to see you next year.

Thanks! If every thing goes as planned I will be there. On a side note the family and I spent last weekend in Guntersville and absolutely fell in love with the area

Just saw this and was wondering if you made it to Rocketman? I did it for the first time, and had a blast. It was a great course and the RD and everyone involved did a superb job I thought. Now if we can just get those Alabama August temperatures down a little bit for that run....
