ROCtoberfest is a party, 5K and fundraising opportunity for local charities in October. ROCtoberfest 5K was created in 2018 where we were able to support raising money for various charities in the region without each charity needing to shoulder the expense of producing an event.
Grab your running shoes and lederhosen to celebrate at the ROCtoberfest 5K! Join us at Genesee Valley Park for a fun festival kicked off by the 5K run/walk that also will serve as a fundraising event for local charities. Enjoy Live Music and Helping Raise Money for Local Rochester Charities!
Want to raise money for your charity? Become a charity partner!

To list your organization as one of our beneficiaries, email Ruthie at Ruthie@yellowjacketracing.com with your non-profit's logo and a description of your charity.
We will then send you a link to set up your financial information, so the donation money is sent directly to your account.
After that, you can start promoting your fundraising team with your members on social media and email.
If your org raises $1000 or more you get to have a tent at the race site showcasing your org.
