The 12th annual Run Rocklin will be held Sunday, April 12 at Johnson-Springview Park in Rocklin.
Last year a half-marathon (13.1 miles) was added and helpedthe annual charity event have a record-number 3,123 participants. The event has benefited the Matt Redding Foundation and Rocklin’s local schools since 2006. Run Rocklin raised $29,000 in 2014.
Unlike other half-marathons in the Sacramento region, Run Rocklin offers more rolling hills and challenging terrain. The race starts and ends at Johnson Springview Park, 5480 5th St. The half-marathon is limited to the first 600 people who register.
“The half-marathon is a very popular, sought-after distance and really helped boast our overall numbers last year. Half marathons are what a lot of runners are doing locally,” Race Director Larry Osborne said. “Our half-marathon offers a unique combination of a gentle start, up-and-down terrain, rolling hills and a flat fast finish.”
