ROC The Falls

 An adventure mud run is hoping to make a difference for local charities. ROC The Falls or Rally On Charity, is a certified extreme 5K mud run.

The run will feature 18 to 20 different obstacles, five or six mud pits, and storage crates that you climb. You will travel through different terrains spread out across 45 acres.

The obstacles are optional. At each obstacle there will be an easy and hard version. If you don’t want to participate in the run, you can always watch from the bleachers, and join every for fun after the race.

“My wife and I started the ROC The Falls mud run to give back to some of our favorite charities,” said Gary Clark, founder of ROC The Falls. “We are both really passionate about animals, and my wife…has experience with Alzheimer’s, so those were the first two charities we looked upon to do a benefit for.”

Four local non-profit organizations will benefit from this fundraiser: Alzheimer’s Association of Wichita Falls, the Humane Society, Wichita West Volunteer Fire Department, and Lakeside VFD. You will have the opportunity to choose which organization you want to donate to upon registration.

And $18 out of your registration fee goes straight to that organization of your choice. The adventure run is in efforts to raise money and awareness for local charities.

The crew is currently looking for volunteers to help set up obstacles and work different areas come race day. Every Saturday leading up to the race will be a work day. They will work to build and finish obstacles, and clear paths.

You can come to a work session and help out. They are from 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. and those are two hour long sessions.

You can also volunteer to work race day. They need volunteers to work rest areas and help at obstacle stops.
