The  Rocklin Public Safety Foundation is a non-profit that exists to support  and enhance the police and fire departments in the City of Rocklin.   The volunteers of this organization are key contributors the the safety  of all of our participants by providing traffic management at all of the  key intersections on each of our courses.  Each year we make a  significant contribution to the RPSF.

Run Rocklin was born in 2004  as Rocklin Run for The Gold.  It was created by a small group of  dedicated Rocklin residents who wanted to establish a run/walk event  that would benefit local organizations and causes.  From the very  beginning they built a complete, well organized run/walk format that has  with stood the test of time.  The group worked with the City of Rocklin  from the outset and formed a relationship that has evolved over the  last 14 plus years into a well oiled functioning partnership.

The  first Rocklin Run for the Gold  was themed for St. Patricks Day in  March of 2004.  It will well attended and benefited a group that moved  St. Mary's church in Rocklin to its present location.  The success and  growth has continued in subsequent years.

In  2006 the Title Sponsor of Rocklin Run for The Gold assumed  responsibility for the event and has "taken care" of the run/walk ever  since.  The event was renamed "Run Rocklin" and has continued to  contribute to our local community organizations and causes.
