The annual Sudbury Rocks!!! Race Run or Walk for Diabetes returns on Sunday, May 13. This race and fundraising event offers something for people of all levels of ability.


This year's event offers a free 1 km kids run, a 5 km, 10 km, half-marathon and a full Boston qualifier marathon. There is also a marathon team relay where a group of up to eight people can compete to cover the full marathon distance as a relay team.

Prizes are up for grabs for first, second and third place in the solo paid races.


Since 2004, Sudbury Rocks!!! has raised more than $600,000 for Diabetes Canada.
"This year we hope to raise another $40,000 for the cause," said a news release from Sudbury Rocks.
"With your support, whether you race, volunteer, or donate, we will be closer to winning the fight against diabetes with all proceeds donated to Diabetes Canada."


Sunday, May 13 is also Mother's Day, so every female participant will receive a special reward.
