SudburyRocks!!! Volunteers Needed


Attention Runners! We are urgently seeking volunteer race marshals to support the Sudbury Rocks Marathon event on Sunday May 28th, 2023. Race marshals are strategically located at intersections along all race courses to help keep runners safe and stay on course. Please email our volunteer coordinator to offer your help












SudburyROCKS!!! Meet Ashley Hayes


Ashley Hayes, a remarkable SudburyROCKS!!! runner, is gearing up once again to participate in the half marathon. Her dedication to running stems from a profound belief in its ability to improve one's health, foster a sense of community, and contribute to meaningful causes. But why is she specifically running SudburyROCKS!!! this year?
Ashley's journey with SudburyROCKS!!! began in 2018 when she took part in her very first half marathon. It was an experience that instantly captured her heart and ignited her passion for running. The event itself was a wellspring of inspiration, as it not only brought people together but also raised funds for a local charity. The presence of enthusiastic spectators, dedicated volunteers, and fellow runners provided an incredible atmosphere of encouragement and camaraderie. From that moment on, Ashley was hooked.

Since her inaugural race, Ashley has been an unwavering participant in SudburyROCKS!!!, even taking part virtually when circumstances necessitated it. However, this year holds special significance for her, as SudburyROCKS!!! is returning to in-person racing, promising to be stronger and more invigorating than ever. The event will also be supporting the Northern Cancer Foundation, a cause that resonates deeply with Ashley.
As an active member of the Sudbury Rocks Running Club, Ashley feels proud and honored to be part of a community that welcomed her with open arms over four years ago. For her, running is not merely about personal achievements or fitness goals; it is about embodying a positive role model for her children, being connected to a supportive community, raising awareness for cancer research, and honoring the memory of loved ones, Lise and Steve.

Ashley's story is truly inspirational, as it showcases the transformative power of running and the immense impact it can have on both individuals and communities. If you share her passion or are inspired by her journey, you still have the opportunity to join SudburyROCKS!!! by registering. Together, let us embrace the spirit of running, foster a sense of togetherness, and contribute to the meaningful cause of cancer research.

Local Action Offroad

Liz Schweyer

Ran the 50 km trail race at the Conquer the Canuck Ultra Trail Race! Having my mama and Ada at the start and finish made for a very special race this Mother’s Day weekend!



Dennis Legault

Spartan Super 10km 1st Place!

It was such a fun event, with new obstacles, a really far spear throw, 200 foot barbed wire crawl in mud and some killer competition. I love the start of the race because everyone takes off hot! I let them go and stay calm because I know the race doesn’t start until 3-4 km in when they feel the hill and obstacles pound their legs and lungs. Once I got the spear throw I went from 8th to 1st and it was game over from there. I love these events so much because you never know what can happen; one slip and you can lose it all.
