After their successful first year as joint sponsors, Roc Technologies is pleased to announce it has become sole sponsor of the 2019 Newbury Roc 10k. The annual race, which last year raised £13,354.96 for Newbury Athletics Club and 2018 chosen charity PALS West Berkshire, will be held on the 26th May 2019 and is open to runners in a range of age categories.
CEO of Roc Technologies Matt Franklin said, “We’re absolutely delighted to sponsor the Roc 10K again this year and now become the sole sponsor. Roc Technologies is proud to be a Newbury based fast growing business, and being part of the local community and supporting sport participation is something we are especially proud of. I was so proud to see over 800 runners participating this year, with an especially high turnout of young runners. The Roc running team also did particularly well, and my sister winning the women’s race was icing on the cake of a memorable day. Next year’s race will be even bigger and better and we want to bring a digital and technology edge to the race to help promote it but also create even greater inclusion and excitement.”
Newbury Athletics Club Chairman Bob Broadbridge said, “We are delighted that Roc Technologies will be joining us again. Together we can make this years’ race even bigger and better than before!”
Roc was formed in 2011 and has since become one of the UK’s fastest growing and capable Digital Transformation Services Providers, empowering organisations in the public and private sector to accelerate business and technology change.
