About ROC Nanaimo

Trail Running

ROC is a group of local trail runners who host weekly runs on the trails around Nanaimo. See our Meetup page for the latest running schedule and photos.

You can join our weekly runs as an initial (free) drop-in, and if you like it, please consider becoming a member.

Community Support

ROC is also a non-profit society whose purpose is to raise awareness and provide funding for social and charitable causes. ROC volunteers at the local food bank and raises money to help local citizens (especially youth) overcome financial barriers, allowing them to participate in sports.

ROC raises funds through our membership fees and our annual Fletcher’s Challenge trail race.

Since its inception in 2003, ROC (Runners of Compassion) has distributed over $200,000 within our local community.
