Run Rocklin continues commitment to raise funds for community nonprofits

Thousands of runners and walkers will once again be participating in the morning trek through the city streets at the 15th annual Run Rocklin, held Sunday morning, April 8 at Johnson-Springview Park.

A well-supported local event, Run Rocklin continues to evolve, yet all prices remain the same with no increases right up to race day. And there is also no additional service charge fee.

This will be the 12th year that Run Rocklin has benefited the Matt Redding Foundation and also several law enforcement-related organizations. Run Rocklin raised approximately $23,000 in 2017.
