White Rock And Roll is a 10-mile run this Saturday at White Rock Lake, and if you are the type of person to ever run 10 miles, this is the time to do it, because within a few more weeks it will be too hot to survive such a trek. There’s also a 5-mile option, plus loads of post-run family fun. The race begins at 8 a.m. at Winfrey Point at White Rock Lake. Register race morning before 7:30 a.m.
