As a reminder ... PRICE INCREASE in exactly one month from tonight. Don't miss out on the super low family early bird rate and commit your May 12 morning right now to ROCC'ing Solus Christus!
Register through runsignup here: https://runsignup.com/Race/Events/NC/Clemmons/TheROCC5K
Or, complete registration forms at Fleet Feet Winston Salem or River Oaks Community Church.
Whether you spot them from a distance or up close, whenever you see that recognizable ROCC 5K magnet out there, we want you to think about two things:
1) Solus Christus and the beautiful, necessary, life transforming work that takes place every day on the farm.
2) Registration is open - you really want to be part of this year's ROCC 5K!
We LOVE our sponsors! Without them the race day experience is significantly diminished, and more importantly, so is our ability to bless the race beneficiary (this year, Solus Christus) with needed proceeds.
If you, or the company in which you are employed, would like to be loved on (from promotional banner, to race weekend yard signs, to social media presence) and would like to support Solus Christus and the ROCC 5K runners and walkers, just let us know. We have details ready to hand you, and/or send electronically for more information. Contact Rebecca Kearns - Sponsorship Director (email@example.com) or David Holcomb at River Oaks.
Thank you in advance for all you do.
So, the ROCC 5K official page is right here on Facebook (yes, we know, we're not exactly the youngest bunch of race directors out there). That said, we do have a twitter feed and would love to have our runners, walkers, and volunteers post their own pics and thoughts before, during, and after the race.
TBT - 2012. The first starting stretch of the very first ROCC 5K. Also, what would be the first of five titles for JP; the exception, 2016 when Miss Nunn took home top overall with a new women's course record. See you along L-C Rd. soon.
For over ten years, Solus Christus has provided transitional addiction recovery housing, in a safe place community, for hundreds of local women attempting to break free and begin permanent healing. A faith-based program, routinely found to be significantly more effective than traditional programs, Solus Christus is adding a second boarding home to meet the unfortunate demand of today’s state of addiction.
Runners, walkers, volunteers, and sponsors, thank you for supporting Solus Christus through your participation and through raising the awareness of the ongoing energy and effort of Solus Christus. Additionally, we will be announcing a collection item soon that will further assist this ministry in meeting the daily operational needs. More to come.
Wow - these ROCC runners are in a hurry. Probably to get connected with the ROCC 5K Facebook page! Thank you to each of the now 600+ runners, walkers, volunteers, and sponsors who have 'liked' our page and supported the ROCC 5K. Stay informed. Stay inspired. Stay ROCC'ing.
Training commences today! You have ten weeks until lining up at the starting line on L-C- Rd. That's perfect, you can do this!
And you know what they say, the best way to hold yourself accountable is to sign up for a race. So go ahead and commit to supporting Solus Christus (at the super low $20 early bird rate) and register now: https://runsignup.com/Race/NC/Clemmons/TheROCC5K
Bonus: We have plans to enhance our drone aerial coverage this year. We would love to see your smiling (sweaty, grimacing, exhilarated) face looking back up at us.
The secret to the ROCC 5K is that it is about the 'fast' and the 'finish.' It is a race day experience designed to reward the elite among us and the first timer among us. It is a course that provides the novelty of a track lap and the seriousness of a long straight L-C Road runway.
Bottom line, whether you are a runner or walker, young or old, fast or (not so fast), the ROCC 5K is intent on putting this ROCC 5K finisher's joy on everyone's face. Come join us on May 12 and get your smile on!

ROCC 5K runners and walkers just go - go - go, but it would be a long and difficult morning of going nowhere if it weren't for the 100+ volunteers who help us go!
If you are not running or walking this year and would still like to support Solus Christus, we would love to have you join us in volunteering.
In addition to the "more blessed to give than to receive" satisfaction that you will find in volunteering race weekend, you will also receive that highly stylish and especi...ally visible volunteer tee, a volunteer breakfast of (and this was just confirmed from the fine folks over at Biscuitville) biscuits, pastries, and fruit, and the opportunity to select where you would like to serve.
Simply follow the link to learn more and discover all the ways you can support our participants and race beneficiary by serving just a few hours on May 11 and 12. Thank you in advance.
Props to the awesome folks over at Custom Advertising Inc. on Country Club in Winston Salem. A seven-year sponsor and fantastic materials printer for the ROCC 5K.
Look for these eye-catching posters and tri-folds around town and start sharing the news that registration opens this Thursday morning, March 1st!
Be a part of helping those seeking to help themselves, the ladies of Solus Christus, as you run, walk, volunteer, and/or sponsor this year's event (sponsorship information available soon).
Runners, Walkers, Sponsors, and Friends: The 2018 race information page on Runsignup is now live! Note that registration opens on March 1, however, you can learn more about this year's event and bookmark the link below for a return visit post-March 1st.
As you know, we have historically utilized Active.com for the ROCC 5K. So please bear with us should you encounter any issues. We think we are good to go and that your experience will be even better with this change in race p...age services. We do plan on expanding further in '19 in regards to storing the race photos here, collecting volunteer signups, etc., but one step at a time.
See you soon!
Guess what we are finalizing today ....
Registration opens three weeks from tomorrow!
Mark those calendars for May 12th and start thinking sunny, warm, spring running thoughts as you plan on ROCCing Solus Christus this May.
