Looking good for ROC 5K


Sponsor Truro and Penwith College has unveiled this year’s running shirt for The ROC 5K charity fun run.

This popular annual event, which has a new route this year, is taking place from Truro’s Lemon Quay after work on Tuesday, June 27. With more than 300 participants registered already, the organisers are hoping for a record turnout.

The ROC 5K is the major source of support for ROC Welcome, a vibrant social club for people with learning disabilities, which is based at Truro College. ROC Welcome is part of United Response, a national disability charity that works with people with learning disabilities and mental health needs.

Theresa Edwards, programme team leader for Foundation Studies students at Truro and Penwith College, said: “The College is proud to support The ROC 5K.

“Staff and students across the college sign up to take part and the Foundation Studies department is always well represented. The college supports the event with promotion to its local business contacts, and on race day we provide the PA system, warm up instructors and physios for everyone taking part.”
