Chartered accountancy, PKF Francis Clark, has unveiled this year’s technical running shirt for The ROC 5K charity fun run, which takes place in Truro towards the end of June.
With 400 runners having taken part in last year’s sell out event, the organisers are hopeful of a repeat performance this year, but with the limit set at 500 participants.
The funds raised by The ROC 5K 500 will support ROC Welcome, a social opportunity for local people with learning disabilities which is based at Truro College.
The running shirt, supplied by Personal Best Running, features the logos of all corporate sponsors and partners, including PKF Francis Clark. A light green colour has been chosen for this year, with a navy blue shirt for people who raise more than £75 in personal sponsorship.
The event entry fee includes the running shirt and post event refreshments. The shirts are delivered to participants when they register so that all runners wear their ROC 5K shirt on race day.
PKF Francis Clark partner, Scott Bentley, said: “The firm is proud to have been a major sponsor of The ROC 5K from the very beginning. With more than 30 organisations behind the event and the prospect of 500 runners this year, it has fast become a very special occasion in Cornwall’s calendar.”
PKF Francis Clark’s Richard Wadman, who has previously taken part in The ROC 5K dressed as a Viking and the Pink Panther, added: “We’d love to develop a tradition of outrageous, ostentatious and ridiculous fancy dress – to reinforce the fun in fun runs, generate some great pics for the press and provide a great reason for people to sponsor you. Why not consider a space theme this year?’
The ROC 5K run will take place on Tuesday June 28 from 5.30pm with runners coming under starter’s orders at 6.30pm, starting and finishing at Truro’s Lemon Quay.
