Sunset Run
A Unique Trail Run on Rocklin's Newest Recreation Area


This is your opportunity to explore and learn about the Sunset Whitney Recreation Area (SWRA), Rocklin’s newest recreation area! 

The City of Rocklin, in conjunction with the Run Rocklin Series, is hosting a unique early evening run/walk fundraiser on the grounds of Sunset Whitney Recreation Area (formerly the Rocklin Golf Course) . There will be plenty to do with the whole family after the run, so make an evening out of it! Lawn games, vendors, food trucks, and to top it off, a movie under the stars! Bring your blankets, cozy sweaters, & lawn chairs to get comfy while we enjoy time together in nature! We’ll be showing “Toy Story 4″ with the movie starting around 6:30 pm.

The Run Rocklin Series is proud to offer a Run and/or Walk experience in the same traditions as Run Rocklin (15 years) and the Grateful Dog (5 years).
