The eighth annual Run Rocklin will be held Sunday at Johnson-Springview Park in Rocklin.

The event begins with a 12K run at 8 a.m., followed by a 5K run/walk at 8:15. A quarter-mile Kids Fun Run starts at 7:45, and there is a one-mile run for kids at 9:30. Both runs for kids are free.

Run Rocklin attracted 2,600 total participants last year.

The race helps raise money for the nonprofit Matt Redding Scholarship Foundation, and now has given $34,000 in memory of the fallen Rocklin Police Officer. Redding was struck by a vehicle driven by an intoxicated driver while on duty in October 2005.

“Matt loved this community and would be so honored that people are running year after year in a race that supports a scholarship foundation in his name,” said John Redding, Matt’s father. “Our family is extremely pleased that so many people continue to support Run Rocklin. It’s a great community event, and we’re happy the Redding family can be associated with it.”

Race-day registration costs $34 for adults and $20 for kids 18 and under. To register, visit
