About the Race

The annual ROC 5K (3 mile) Charity Fun Run will take place after work on Tuesday 26 June 2018 starting and finishing at Lemon Quay, Truro.  This is the fifth year of the run and it raised just over £15,000 last year.  We will be raising funds again for the ROC Wellbeing Social Club in Truro and for IT equipment for the Chapel, Wheal Busy near Chasewater. 


Our challenge this year to the runners is to raise £85 each to help support our ROC Wellbeing Social Club in Truro and IT equipment for the Chapel, Wheal Busy.  We have lots of tips and fundraising ideas to help support you and we will also be having running tips and guidelines to help get you ready for the day.
