Originally due to take place in 2020 but postponed due to the pandemic lock-down, we are thrilled to confirm that ROC24 [Suffolk 2021] will instead be taking place at Ipswich High School, Woolverstone Hall, on the revised dates of 26/27 June 2021.
Woolverstone Hall is a beautiful Grade I listed building set in 80 acres of parkland located on the banks of the River Orwell, Suffolk, only 10 minutes drive from Ipswich town centre and within easy access of the A12 and A14.
A single-loop 5k course will cover as much of the stunning parkland as possible, as it sweeps through lawns and wooded areas with a stunning river vista backdrop. A course map will be available to download here from April.
RUN OR CYCLE EVENTS are passionate about creating enjoyable events that will challenge you in equal measure - and ROC24 [Suffolk 2021] is no different.
We really hope you can join us on the start line!
