ROC24 will take place at Ipswich High School,  Woolverstone Hall, on 7th and 8th May 2022, with overnight camping & camper vanning available from 6th May. We also have a Canine friendly camping area this year too.

Woolverstone Hall is a  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, within easy access of the A12 / A14.

The 5k course sweeps over as much of the estates parkland as possible, including manicured lawns, woodland trails, sheep grazing fields, tarmac sections and through the camping area, with a stunning river vista.
