Fletcher’s Challenge

This is our annual trail running race.  More details

Weekly Trail Runs

Come join us on the trails around Nanaimo!  Weekly runs are held each Saturday morning and usually last 1.0 to 1.5 hours.  There can be as many as three or four groups of trail runners on any given Saturday depending on attendance levels and availability of trail leaders.  Members are asked to select the group which best matches their own trail running experience and fitness level.  A leader and sweeper will be assigned to each group.

  •  Group 1:  Fast
  •  Group 2:  Moderate
  •  Group 3:  New to trail running (those with a solid fitness base)
  •  Group 4:  Hikers

Location… Check our members-only Facebook page ROC & Routes to see where our next Saturday trail run will be located.

Non-members are Welcome

We encourage you to join us for a “Drop In” trail run.  Please register here for a One Time Drop In and email us at info@rocnanaimo.com with the date you plan to attend so we can send you the location details.

Runners of Compassion (ROC) COVID-19 Participant Declaration:

  • I agree to conduct a COVID-19 self-assessment prior to the start of any group trail runs, and to participate only if I am healthy and not self-isolating.
  • I acknowledge that failure to abide by these policies and guidelines may result in temporary suspension of my Club membership.
  • I acknowledge that there are risks associated with participating in Club activities, and that the measures taken by ROC including those set out above will not entirely eliminate those risks.

Volunteer Events

ROC members volunteer monthly with the local Nanaimo food bank Loaves & Fishes.  Come and join us for a good cause!  It’s a ton of fun and a great way to give back to the community.

ROC volunteers are also involved with Hamperville Nanaimo.  Every year our members work with other volunteers and take donated food items, sort them into food groups, and then box them for distribution in the community.

Annual General Meeting

ROC is led by a board of directors and our AGM takes place each spring.  All ROC members are welcome to attend.  Stay tuned for more details about our next AGM in 2024…
