As of 1st April 2017, ROC (Robert Owen Communities) will have merged with United Response. The ROC name now forms part of the innovative ROC Wellbeing services. ROC Wellbeing services, including ROC Welcome, offer a varied range of programmes and creative activities designed to improve people's heath and wellbeing, as well as increasing work and learning opportunities across the Devon and Cornwall region.

About the Race

The route will start in the heart of beautiful Truro, moving alongside the river on the Newham side and the historic city centre including the Cathedral, Royal Cornwall Museum and The Leats.

The ROC 5K is licensed under RunBritain but is not a ‘measured’ 5K.
